The game is basically we are all in survival mode. From finding that special someone to love, to having a baby, to seeing that baby graduate to looking across the breakfast table to the man you married so many years ago. Sometime- and this is where I am- its just to keep the roof over your head. Your temper from flaring and keeping my eyes on the One who loves me most.
This past Sunday, Pastor spoke on faith, forgiveness and remembering to keep our faith when it seems everything is going badly. I find comfort to know that when I have troubles forgiving myself. My God forgives me. He says my sin is as "far as the East is from the West". Satan (the greatest stratigist in the universe) knows that if he reminds me of my sin then I keep reliving it. Keep doubting God. Keep doubting God's power to move mountains. And guess what... He moves mountains for - (wait for it) ME!
As bad as I am... He loves me.
So in this time of keeping ahead of the bills, relationships, and worldly needs- with no money coming into our home, my Charlie and I at odds with how this is working out. For the first time we are looking at what we NEED and not what we WANT- I KNOW that my redeemer lives. I KNOW that HE has forgiven and will do mighty things.
Why? Because HE said so. Because HE always has. Because when I mess up- He forgive, forgets and moves on.
God- as we say in church- is good... ALL THE TIME.
