A wretch His daughter

How great the Father’s love for me. How vast beyond all measure. That He would send His only Son to make a wretch His daughter. I don’t think those are the right words, but I like them. I am tired out of my mind right now. As one of my friends would say exhausted beyond beef.

Very good day today. When I got to church this morning, I felt more vulnerable than I have in awhile. It caught me off guard because I had no feelings of fear on my way to church. I think it is this inventory thing. I struggled with my trigger points. Then I had a few things go pretty south in my day, which popped me out of my vulnerability and put me in a pretty good mood for awhile. About the time CR started up, the cold I thought I was kicking this morning started to act up again. So I have been pretty shot the last four hours.

Huge celebration though. I did yoga this morning without it triggering anything. I did it to loosen up my back and chest from the coughing. It worked very well for that. I don’t want to explain why yoga is a trigger, but I am excited I have perhaps grown enough in my relationship with Christ to do the purely physical parts of yoga again.

By the time CR was finished, my triggers were tripping again. I am just vulnerable right now, but maybe that is okay. February: the month I cry and cry and cry and be sick.

How great the Father’s love for us. How vast beyond all measure. That He would send His only Son to make a wretch His daughter.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:35-39
