Christian living, 31 day writing challenge, tell

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
-Matthew 6:25-26

I tell you the truth. It seems odd that we would need Jesus to assure us again and again that He was speaking the truth, and yet, I know I have days when it is difficult to believe the things He said still apply in my life. While my head may know the words, my heart is slower to believe that He wants such great things for me - a sinner.

Perhaps I am not the only one who struggles with feeling inadequate, feeling unloveable at times. I ask God how He could love me, and then an amazing thing happens, He shows me His love. Often in the past I have worried about things I could not change. I wish I had understood more about His grace then. I wish I had trusted Him more. Today I look forward, knowing that around each and every turn God will be there with me. It is a concept at once overwhelming and unfathomable, and yet, so comforting! God IS here with me, and He says He will never leave me. 

What can man do to me? In the scope of eternity - nothing! May my heart continue to believe the things it has only wondered about in the past. May I continue to walk forward, following Jesus, comforted by the Holy Spirit living inside of me and guiding me. May I tell others about the wonderful things God has done. 




Brings to mind a song: I love to tell the story of unseen things above, of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love. I love to tell the story, because I know 'tis true, it satisfies my longings, like nothing else can do.

  1. I ask God how He could love me, and then an amazing thing happens, He shows me His love. I know... isn't it amazing when this happens?
