Do you feel like an outcast???
Jeremiah 30:17 (King James Version)
17For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
Praise God that He is for me and even though there have been times when I felt like I was worthless and no one wanted me around ,He did not let me stay in that frame of mind . He has a way of sending the right message along to let us know We are worthy of His love.
Life can often throw rocks onto our path that will cause us to stumble but if we just reach up He is there reaching out a helping hand to help us back up onto our feet and so many times I was stronger than before I had fell.
Acts 17:28-29 says " in Him I LIVE and move and have my being ...." without Him I know i would be lost without hope of ever making it up when I have stumbled and fell.
I know there are times when you do not know if He is there .... You ask yourself is it worth the pain to keep trying and pushing on ??? YES AND YES AND YES !!!!
It is worth it to know that one day I will get to be with Him forever . I must admit I am going to miss some of the things here on earth like Rocky road ice cream...Dr Pepper ...grapefruit ... watching a sappy love movie with my husband... playing cards all nite with my kids ...cuddling with my granddaughter... chatting with friends on the phone or computer... I am just being honest ...God knows how I feel and He does not hold it against me and He won't hold it against you if you just talk to Him and admit it to yourself ....But none of that matters if it meant living forever without Him in Heaven. I would give it all up today if it meant going to heaven and not hell.
Of course I do not want to die today .... I want to grow old with my husband and live long enough to see my babies grow up and live for God too! I want to be able to have many many more moments of talking with God about my life and my family and friends lives here on earth.
Thanks for allowing me to be honest with you today and maybe you will have a honesty moment with God today ....
Take time to Breathe Deeply !!!!!
