If you have a story similar to mine, you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior when you were in single digits. You were raised partly by your biological family but also by your Church one. You’ve been on the journey with God for many years.
Feelings come and go. Discipline ebbs and flows. There are seasons of still waters and others of refining fire. Faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses. #
Salvation is a gift. Even though there has never been a time I did not know His name, He. still. came. and. got. me. I was in a dark room with no light and no way out and He came for me. Breaking through my pride, my selfishness, my performance with perfect love.
Some days that reality is so striking, so beautiful, so tangible. Some moments I feel physically weighed down by gratitude and delight and desire for the Lord.
Today is one of those days. Tomorrow wading through the pregnancy hormones might feel like a battle of preaching the gospel to myself. But praise Him for today’s grace.
