Waking up Differently

This morning as I study and pray at my desk, I think about how I awakened for many years.  The minute my eyes popped open, I would take an inventory mentally of all the problems that were going on in my life at that time.  The same thing would happen as I closed my eyes at night.  The difference now is as I retire for the night, I think of the many blessings God has bestowed upon me and I wake doing the same thing.  As I glance back, I cannot remember the exact time and date that change occurred nor does it matter.

Zephaniah 3:17 reads “The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”  This, I now know to be true and with this Truth, my heart sings.

Being Good

Growing up, I believed one must be good in order for God to love him when actually, God can only love since He is Love!  Being Good to me has come to mean being grateful for all the Good God has bestowed upon me.  Romans 8:38-39 reads, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
