I am fascinated again and again by our great God. I am fascinated by his mercy and his grace. I am in awe of his continual love for me. I am a pretty messed up person. You don’t have to dig to deep to see a pretty big tangle of fears, neuroses, and character flaws. And yet God still chooses me. God still loves me, and in fact God still calls me His friend.
This week has been a crazy one for me. I have to preach 2 sermons on Sunday. I have in-laws coming in to town so I have to clean. Up until today my yard looked like a jungle. I had to take my car to Dothan to get a new key. I had to leave my car in Dothan (an hour away) because it wouldn’t crank once it go there. I had to spend more money than I wanted to get my car fixed 2 days later. My computer had a virus that I only just now figure out how to defeat (don’t believe the update below), and I also have my regular job type stuff to do.
But here is the amazing thing. It has been one of the best weeks I have had in a very long time. God has been real to me this week in a way that I can’t explain. I find myself praying more as I just go through my day, and I find myself facing things that I normally would have backed away from.
I’m still not perfect, but I can feel God in my life in way that I haven’t been able to for a while now. I honestly didn’t know how long it had been until this week when I remembered what it was like to walk with Him again.
In the middle of the chaos of my days God has shown up in my life and reminded me of his love and his grace in my life. It has been a pretty cool week.
