I Am Thankful For God’s Love
He Even Loves those people detest
There have been so many times in my life I felt unworthy of God’s love. I mean really, look at my life. A sinful woman who is stubborn and headstrong. I tried to control anyone and everything around me and caused much pain for my children and even myself. But, still God was there for us. He never stepped in the way of me making my own choices, but He was always there to make sure we were never fully devastated by those choices. He let us learn from those experiences because He knew who we needed to be for Him.
Just imagine it. God knew everything we would do in our whole lives while on the cross. But, still He was willing to endure the pain of the cross so we could inherit the Kingdom with Him. How humbling is that? We are washed new by the blood He shed. Our past sins are just that our past. They are memories to remind us how Great God is. I am thankful for God’s love because if it was not for that I would not have the strength to become who He needs me to be.
Because of His love and patience I have learned that doing it my own way brings about great pain. Now that I understand I cannot live without Him I know how to deal with my own anxiety and fear. I give to God, I read His word to teach me how to live life. My fears are relieved as I accept His leading and control over my life. When I see a step He wants me to take and I obediently follow His leading brings me peace that is hard to explain.
I am thankful for God’s love for all His creatures because it reassures me that those I see suffering God can and will help them through it. I hope you understand that today. Even if it seems that your circumstances in life will never get better. God knows and sees you. He cries, He hurts, He gets angry right along with you. Yes, we are made in His image so if we have these emotions so does God. Think of Jesus 40 days of fasting in the wilderness. He was tempted, just as we have been and will be. Jesus wept for Lazarus, and He got angry at the money changers in the temple. It is true, God feels your emotions with you and understands more than you know. He loves you deeply and is working in and around you as I type this. Please, just know as you go through your life with the Lord He has a great plan for all you are going through.
