Blessings In This Life
Isn't it wonderful when you have those seasons in your life when you truly can see the blessings of God all over you?
So many of us have been in valleys where we KNEW THE TRUTH OF THE WORD but just didn't feel that truth in our emotions. We knew that God loved us, was caring for us, watching over our current situation but we just couldn't FEEL HIM. I am learning that it doesn't matter what I'm feeling. No matter what.... His word will always speak truth to my heart. No matter how I feel - the truth is that God loves each and every one of us and it doesn't matter that we fall short and mess up. We can always consciously tuck his whisper of absolute love into the deepest part of our hearts.
Psalm 86:11 asks the Lord to "teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart."
That is my prayer and it is my desire to ask this daily as I bow before our Holy God and ask him to control my life. Remove my flesh from the throne and govern my life in the way he sees fit.
I have been blessed by God in so very very many ways. He has blessed me with loving children that respect me even when I am not certain I earned that respect in the past. Amazing Grandchildren that light my world a blaze. Even as I write this blog I have a new grandbaby being formed in my Daughter-In-Laws womb. Such an amazing gift of God.
I do still seek and pray for the salvation of my little family and the many many dear friends I have met in this life....but as I meditate on the amazing grace of our HOLY HEAVENLY FATHER I must pause and thank him for loving me enough to sacrifice his Son for the sin in my life that he knew even before I was formed.
Blessings to all,
