2am

I can’t sleep. The rain keeps me awake. Or maybe it’s my throbbing legs. They say when you can’t sleep, the best thing to do is talk to the Lord. So I opened my bible and tgis is the verse og the day:

http://bible.com/111/isa.53.3.niv He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

How comforting it is that Jesus understands what we are going through. He’s been mistreated as well just like us. He is familiar with pain. He knows about pain. He’s been held in low esteem.

Rejected and alone. Mistreated. In pain. God understands these, too. What’s great is that He is able to defeat all of these trials. He’s victorious. And we can share in this victory only if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior.

We are constantly invited to be in His loving presence.

How comforting it is to know I am not alone–to know that I am loved.

Eye on the Goal

Before coming back here, I was reminded to keep my eye on the goal. From experience I have been like a sheep–easily distracted from what is in front of me.

A few weeks ago, several days after I have come back, a distraction came.

But as I was reminded, I have to keep my eye on my goal. Opportunities will come but I have to seek wisdom.

This is also the message I have gathered from the easter service I attended. Waves will come in, but we should anchor with the right foundation so we won’t drift away. That is what faith is. I have been a drifter. I have backslided. But God is kind. He is still holding me–not letting me go. I thank Him for His grace.

Whatever happens with my recent decision, I know that I’ve got to have faith. God is in control. He let things happen for a very good reason.

And for now, I am just relieved that I’m back into God’s loving arms again.
