God is so very good!

I'm praising God this morning for his goodness. His grace and mercies that are new and fresh each and every morning. This past weekend I felt as though I disappointed God. I did stumble - But praise God (because of his son, Jesus Christ) I did not fall down. That's the joy of being a child of God.

Do we still stumble? Do we still make mistakes? Without a doubt..... YES. Of course we do. But there in lies the answer. Why else would we need a Savior if we could do it perfectly on our own through our own efforts.

I'm growing to realize my desperate need for Jesus. I don't want to try this walk on my own strengths. I would fail each and every time.

Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning, for on You do I lean and in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my inner self to You. Psalm 143: 8

Praise God for being there to show me where to walk and not only that but the guidance and knowledge to know where I SHOULD be walking.......

Thank you Lord for loving me enough to choose me even before you knew me!


  1. Amen Amen
    I am also so thankful for Jesus!!

    Love You

  2. Praising GOD with you for our precious Heavenly Father!!

  4. Holly, So good to see you at my blog today!
    Thoughts on God's goodness: When we trip, fall, or stumble, He is waiting with arms outstretched to help us up and always loves us. It's He who saves us (nothing we can do) and also it's He who makes us want to, and able to, do right and love Him. He's making us into Jesus' likeness, but we're not going to see perfection until we see Him face to face. He has more patience with me than I have with myself, because He loves perfectly.

    The verse below has been a comfort to me. Not how many times I fall down, but whether I get up again, that's important.
    Proverbs 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
