I know I’m not perfect. God’s Word says we all fall short of the glory of God, and none of us are without sin. I have my imperfections, my struggles, my faults and failures. Sin is sin in God’s eyes…it really doesn’t matter what sin it is…it’s sin. But despite my failures, I have a God that loves me and wants the best for me. I have a God who sent His only Son to die an excruitiating death on a cross for me. I know where my security lies and where I’ll be spending eternity, becasue Jesus died for little ol’ me. I know when I confess my sin and struggles to Him, He forgives me and wants me to be whole again. I know God has a plan for my life…a plan that He will fulfill in my life. I know I don’t have to be in control of my life…God is in control of it. I just need to be obedient to what He’s calling me to do. I have everything I need in Him and I am cherished in His eyes. It was good to be reminded of that these last few days!
When I look at my life, I’m thankful. I’m thankful for the gifts God has placed in me to be used to glorify Him. I am thankful that I have the privilege of being a wife, a mother, a sister, a woman and a friend. I am thankful I get to serve God in so many capacities. I am thankful for the many opportunities I get to show God’s love to others.
As I continue to walk this journey out with God, I will continue to trust Him. I want to let Him lead, and I will focus on following, and not try it the other way around. This time spent with Him these last few days have been much needed and very refreshing. I continue to pray for His will, and not my own as I resume my “normal” schedule tomorrow. And I will continue to remind myself truly who I am.
