Each and every moment that we are given requires from us to do better, be better and simply try our best….but……
I struggle everyday…do you?
My walk with the Lord is way harder than others make it out to be. Now don’t be hasty, I am not passing any judgment, there is more than enough of that. I’m just saying, that, I feel like a very weak individual on most days.
Now seriously, let’s be honest here…daily failure is simply a part of who I am and a part of my everyday.
I yearn to be better…don’t you?
To know that with every breath I exude the love of Jesus.
To love the way Christ loves.
To lead as Christ led.
To forgive as Jesus forgives.
To look beyond the exterior to the heart as Christ does.
I should be named Thomas…how about you?
I doubt my abilities as a wife.
I doubt my abilities as a parent.
I doubt that I am able to teach my children everything they need to know.
And…I doubt God’s love for me.
For every failing, every doubt and every moment of yearning, I have come to realize that it is all for a purpose.
How? You maybe asking…
Let me tell you how I know…
The Love of Jesus ~ He Lives Within My Heart!
I can give you Bible verses, I can relate stories and facts, but truth be told, it is as simple as that. Jesus loves me so much, he gave his life for me (and you too).
I have him in my heart and like no other, he cleanses me, gives me rest when I am weary, gives me comfort in my times of need, he hears me when I cry out to him, he loves me no matter what I may have said, done, or how I behaved.
And with that deep knowing, I am able to wake each morning, refreshed, that by some wonderful amount of grace and mercy, my God has seen fit to give me one more day to do better, be better and try my best…
Ephesians 6:10-18…in my own words : Put on your Full Armor…Daily because the world is full of evil and I need God in EVERY aspect of my life…EACH and Everyday.
Be blessed today,
