Sometimes......Everytime

Share
Sometimes I'm like Adam
I shouldn't eat the fruit but I do anyway
Sometimes I'm like Abraham
I say I believe but I'm holding out on Option B
Sometimes I'm like Sarah
Allowing jealousy to get the better of me
Sometimes I'm like Isaac
I lie to get myself out of a sticky situation
Sometimes I'm like Moses
I react in anger rather than responding in love
Sometimes I'm like David
Carried away in the moment, not thinking about consequences
Sometimes I'm like Elijah
I've seen the fire fall but fear still has a grip on my heart
Sometimes I'm like Peter
I deny, funny how one can deny without saying a word
Sometimes I'm like John Mark
Turning back when the road seems too tough
BUT
EVERYTIME
When I stop and stay still in His presence
He says "I LOVE YOU, COME BACK HOME"
Everytime He loves me
Not because I'm perfect but because He loves me perfectly
Everytime He corrects me
Smacks do hurt, consequences bring pain
Everytime He turns me
In the right direction because He knows it so well
Everytime He reminds me
I am His beloved and He is mine
Everytime
Every single time.....

The Bible says that 'the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is His faithfulness' also ' He has loved us with an everlasting love, He has drawn us to Him by His loving kindness.' We will make mistakes sometimes, we'll fall flat on our faces and wonder how we who know what is right end up getting it so wrong but don't despair, avail yourself of His grace today. Grace is not about making excuses for sin but it is God's arms that lift you out of the ditch, it is giving yourself permission to admit 'I made a mistake, God I'm sorry, help me!'.

Father, I thank you because you are a God of compassion. Thank you for lifting me up. Amen.

Remember the story of your life can never be over until The Storyteller says 'The End.' Remain blessed and highly favoured and have a great week.

"Every time He loves me
Not because I'm perfect but because He loves me perfectly"

Thats the part I love best. "even while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us". That's amazing love.
