Just do it
When is the last time you went the opposite way of Nineveh? You know, the city that Jonah was supposed to visit for God? I would say that, if we were all honest, many of us skip-out on our intended destinations and then complain about them later. Thankfully, we don't end-up in large fishes!
I love you God.
But you love me so much more.
It doesn’t make sense. I mean, God you deserve to be loved.
But you love me anyway.
Hey! What are you doing reading an excerpt from my morning prayer? Well, I guess I was the one who typed it there!
Don’t let grace take the back seat, and definitely don’t let it wear a seat belt. If it asks for permission to drive, say yes. Giving grace the keys will stop any weariness.
Don’t worry, grace drives slow. It may stop many times along the way, so don’t have a busy schedule. It will change your life if you just take the time to let it freely move.
If it chooses to drive in the “wrong” lane, let it go. There are no limits to grace.
What comes to your mind when you think of a follower of Jesus? Are they "good" people who never sin or put people down? If so, I'm out. BUT that's not how it works. A Christian isn't a perfect person who is always polite and loving. In fact, a follower of Jesus recognizes they simply aren't good enough to live up to the high standard of living that God desires. I am going to tell of two encounters within this short blog. They are both people who have had problems with understanding how a sinner could ever be good enough in living the life God wants.
You’ve seen them sitting on the shelf at the store, but did they ever make you wonder? After all, you have some BIG mistakes in your own life. Or at least I do. The eraser works well when erasing our mistaken pencil marks. But it would be even better if that, or some kind of BIG eraser could do supernatural things. Is there an eraser out there that is capable of cleaning us up to where we should be? There is, but it doesn’t look like the picture you may have seen above.
Let me begin my story by saying this: God speaks in and through ordinary things all of the time.
