“For the mountains may move and the hills disappear,
but even then my faithful love for you will remain.
My covenant of blessing will never be broken”
If you didn’t know it already, let me just reiterate, YOU ARE LOVED. There is NOTHING that can separate you from the unconditional and everlasting love of Jesus Christ. Even when you feel angry at God for “not being fair” or alone because you feel like God “left your side”, remember that He is a fair and just God, that has never, and will never leave you. Despite your shortcomings; despite your constant sins; despite your incessant need to rely only on yourself; GOD IS STILL THERE.
When you look back and only see one set of footprints in the path you’ve traveled thus far in life, take heed to the fact that that is when God carried you. Life can’t be intentionally and purposefully lived without Jesus; without recognizing that God is good, and not because we are good, but because God is good.
I may be weak, but Your Spirit’s strong in me.
My flesh may fail, but my God You never will .
Give me faith to trust what You say
That You’re good, and Your love is great.
I’m broken inside, I give You my life.
You are going to fail. You are going to make mistakes. You are going to make it a point to trust in yourself at some point in your life. But you will NEVER be fully content. There will always be something else you want to have, or something else you need to do, but through the Spirit of God you will learn to find peace in your present, and make significant strides of success in your future. The love of God will shower you with blessings unimaginable, and your brokenness will be made whole.
We are all sinners that are saved by grace (if you accept it). We are all prideful and stubborn sometimes. We all feel lost and broken sometimes.
It’s so easy to create idols, and make excuses, that is why we need to hold each other accountable, especially as brothers and sisters in Christ. At this very moment You are loved IMMEASURABLY more than you are I will ever know. I’ve realized over the past couple of weeks that when you put your trust in God, the storms that you go through in life are only just a little rain, compared to the hurricane it would be without God.
What are you going through right now that is distracting you from surrendering your life to the free and amazing gift of God’s love? of God’s grace? of God’s mercy?
If you feel like you are too far gone, or in too deep, or just too unworthy of God’s love, YOU ARE WRONG.
Let me pray for you.
Let me talk with you.
There is hope for a brighter future.
stay beautiful! xoxo
