Ever faithful

The Lord our God is ever faithful. This song has been playing a lot in my head recently. I like its promise. I need the reminder. My heart is very grateful tonight. I was sober all day long (in the sober judgment way). Well, most of the day. I remember having a rough morning before my quiet time. I left myself almost go in entirely the wrong direction. I had to pull myself out of letting my mind dwell on being hurt. This is a habit I definitely need to submit to God.

I had a really good day at church. It was Mother’s Day. I had made all my Mother’s Day calls yesterday, so I did not have to try to work through the emotion today. (Besides it worked better for their schedules, too.) So I was able to move through the day without last year’s emotions.

I had a fantastic conversation about truth and grace and redemption this afternoon at CR. It makes me smile just thinking back on it. Can you believe it? My God can redeem me. I do reckon sometime awhile back I used to say I would not worship a God who was not big enough to change me. If He can create me, He most definitely must be big enough to change me. I knew He was. I just did not have any idea of how wonderful it would feel to be changed.

Ten years ago I came to Him with this huge knot of twisting pain inside of me. A pain that wanted to harm the most innocent of people. He has taken all of it away. He has given me beauty for ashes. Am I still working on my pain on Wednesdays with my counselor? Absolutely! But on a scale of 1-10, the pain is miniscule compared to what it used to be. I may be releasing pain that was so deep it needs professional assistance for me to access and release it, but I am nowhere near the person I used to be. To God be the glory!

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Don’t give offense to Jews or Gentiles or the church of God. I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved. And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ. – I Corinthians 10:31-11:1
