I recently went through a bunch of older documents on my laptop and came across something I want to share with you all. It’s short, but I hope something you all can enjoy.
I love my God. And today is one of those days that I just want to write about my Maker. I get a lot of my inspiration for writing when reading a quote or a verse from the Bible. The other day, I was reading Ecclesiastes 3:1 where is says, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under the sun:” Many times, when going through a difficult circumstance, God will show me a verses from His Word to reaffirm me of His sovereignty, and this time was no different. I immediately became overwhelmingly glad that so many, many years ago the Creator of the universe knew that we weak, lowly human beings would need guidance and comfort and therefore directed men to put together God-breathed words into a book for us to read. I have experienced great comfort (as well as convictions) from the book that the Great I Am orchestrated in order for me to understand (some of) His ways, and learn from other people’s triumphs and failures. I am so thankful that there is an Almighty King loving me, protecting me, and guiding me through life’s mountains and valleys. The fact that He has written my story with more purpose than I could ever think up is so rewarding. The fact that Jesus is my personal Savior, and thought of MY name when crucified on the cross at Calvary is so humbling. And there is no better thought than that of God wanting a relationship with me, and wants me to accept Him into my heart that someday I might live with Him for eternity.
I believe that a God like that is worthy of praise!
