The God whose heart I love - Romans 11:33

May 3, 2011

Romans 11:33 God’s riches, wisdom, and knowledge are so deep that it is impossible to explain his decisions or to understand his ways.

Deep in the valley or high on the mountaintop, one thing is certain: God is in control of each and every moment. Capture and savor glimpses of God in daily life, so you can overcome struggles of sin or disobedience. As the writer Oswald Chambers said, we can’t live a consistent Christian life if we live for the moments when we are in deep communion with the Holy Spirit.

There are some days… Today was one of those days when I wondered why I am on the walk, if I’m never going to overcome the things that trap and keep me captive. But then I look to the God whose heart I love, and I find peace because he really does know me.

He knows my struggles, he knows my joys and he knows that I intend to stay connected to him. I can’t explain his extravagant love and grace, but I know his wisdom has touched me and one thing is sure: He knows me. ♥

    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,

15 And they will say about you,

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
