I thought I loved You then

One of the questions for this week’s small group discussion in regular church groups was “If you told your life story, what would be the major event of it?” The odd part is when I thought about it today, it never felt like my life had an event that should be the event of my life. When I tell the story of my life, it always has. There have always been hinge moments, but today there was not. There was only today.

As I thought about my story, choosing Jesus for the first time over ten years ago did not seem like the event that should take the star of the show. Neither did hitting rock bottom four years ago. It seemed like the most major event of my life was today. One of my dinner group girls mentioned the country song with the refrain, “I thought I loved you then.” That is how I feel about my story today. No day before today has been sweeter than this day. No moment before this moment have I more richly experienced Christ’s love. If you want to know the story of my life, let me tell you who I was twelve years ago. Then I will tell you who I am today. The most major event in my life is today. It so demonstrates God’s redeeming love.

I am so grateful for everyone God has given me. I am thankful for my life. I am thankful He is healing me. So many times I wish it could be on steroids! But it seems slow growth is the way He rolls. His grace will always be enough.

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” – I Corinthians 2:9
