How patient is our Lord!
For centuries He has waited for hardened human hearts to turn toward Him; to seek His face. I was once one of those hardened hearts. I went about my day, rarely a thought of Him... unless I needed something.
I believed in God.
I just didn't care to hang out with Him.
I mean seriously, I was busy and all.
I had my agenda, my plans, my ideas.
Or so I thought.
I have not come to a place of perfect, by any means. I still fail Him every day. But what He has shown me through trials and struggles, is that He cares less about my perfection and more about my heart's desire.
I realize now that I could never be worthy on my own. I could never overcome without His guidance and strength. And because of His salvation through grace, I now long to hear from Him. His truth is the only unshakable foundation in life. His guidance is worth waiting on.
What was I thinking all those years of self-consumption? None of it brought me true peace or contentment. Just a stubborn heart, unwilling to acknowledge that EVERY good and perfect thing is from Him.
Lord God, You are my Saving Truth.
I wait for You all day long!
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
