How often do you really sit down and meditate on how far God has brought you from? Take a trip down memory lane with me, will you? We don’t always get it right and each time we mess up, God is always there and has already strategically planted people, places and little signs to get us back on the right path. During these times he still provides for us, protects us, sees us, guides us, speaks to us. Really zoom in for a second, when you pray for something or someone, how long did it take for your prayers to be answered?
It’s not very easy for us to still feel loved by God when our world has crumbled or we are in a messy state, actually the first person we blame is God!
Isn’t that something? When if only we spare some quality time by ourselves with him, get in the spirit and out of our flesh and really pay attention we will see how this, our God plan our days ahead of time while we sleep, lovingly placing little treasures for us to find and hoping a smile will crack on our faces when we do. Create detours because our hardheaded self choose the wrong way. We stray so many times but he keeps leaving the other 99 sheep and come looking for us! Forgive us, wash us clean and make us a new person every morning- for our sake just so WE can come boldly before him and still be blessed by him. That’s love! That is love!! Do you know how blessed you truly are??? Do you?!
Love, this world is laced with distractions and problems that help take our eyes off Jesus, how faithful and loving and kind and understanding he really is! We often fix our gaze on our issues and truthfully, it’s our norm, but then, we open doors for anxiety and fear to creep in, other voices to minister to us leading us into deep dark places covering our ears and eyes from remembering what he’s done for us and who he is to us. Think back on a time when there’s no doubt in your mind that it was Jesus, he did it- I know you have a time- let sweet tears gush from your eyes and sweet praise flow from your heart as you pour out at our beautiful savior’s feet. Bathe him in your thanks and adoration, oh how he deserves it! Oh, how awesome our God is! How mighty yet so meek, so humble he is!
Oh God, we praise your name, we bless your name, we raise our hands to you, we bow before you! We say thank you for being our God and creating us your people to experience a life with you, clothed in your love! Thank you for your company! Thank you for being here! In Jesus Name, Amen!
