I posted this on social media today and just just wanted to share it here too.
I love being able to look back at this blog and see how much God has grown my faith in him!
This week I’ve been thinking about my relationship with Jesus, and why I love him and talk about him all the time! And I think this kind of sums it up…
To me, worship is my response to this:
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.”
The same God who created the universe saw me in all my muddy sin, and out of love – the kind of love that a dad has for his daughter – he reached down into the slimy pit, the one I couldn’t claw my way out of, and pulled me out of the darkness and into the light. He saved me from my own mess! And he placed me on a firm foundation. He didn’t wait for me to figure things out on my own or expect me to clean myself up first. Instead, he climbed down into the mud with me! How can my response to this be anything other than a heart overflowing with thanksgiving and praise?! How can I not love someone who loves me so perfectly?
This is why I love my Savior. Not because of me, but because of him!
(And this is also why, even though I’ve been told many times not to mix faith and business online, I say, “Screw that!”)
