So we come again to the close of another month, it's insane how time passes by so quickly!
The Lord blesses abundantly in so many different ways, and continues to humble me as He showers me with favor. Along with these blessings come difficulties and trials, some to be expected and some that seem to pop up out of the blue..
But I as walk this road that has been laid before me, I press on only because of the amazing grace of Jesus Christ. And as I wander through the wilderness of this place in which I am but a pilgrim, I'm reminded of the hymn....
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone!
Because I know He holds the future;
My life is worth the living just because He lives.
Life without the saving grace of Christ would pretty much stink. "What manner of love is this, that we should be called the children of God?"(I John 3:1)
I'm reminded of the words of another great song, yet not well known...
There's a wideness in God's mercy I cannot find in my soul;
And it keeps this fire burning to melt this heart of stone.
Keeps me aching, with a yearning
Makes me glad to have been caught in the reckless raging fury
That we call the love of God...
The most powerful force that this world will ever known, and we're caught right in the middle of it. Knowing this i find peace to face the days that follow... Because He lives. That's reason enough for me!
