God Is So Great

God is so great. He always gives you just what you need everyday. Whether you are far away from Him, or close by His side. Every single day, He gives you tests, trials, blessings, love, encouragement, or whatever He knows that is exactly what you need. We don't notice it, but each and everyday He does this for us. He is always right there. Ready to listen to all of our promblems... but before I start complaining, what I really need to do is just be quiet and listen. Listen for that still small voice answering all my questions even before I ask. The voice inside that tells me exactly what is wrong... even before I realize it. Have you ever just felt miserable, and you know it's because you haven't been reading your bible lately or something like that. So you go upstairs, hit your knees and ask forgiveness... and then finish your prayer. But 5 minutes later, you still know something is wrong. So you go back upstairs into your bedroom, and you get of your knees. You try to think of what else you need to ask forgiveness for... but I've found if you just let Christ speak... you actually get somewhere. Just listen... and wait... let Him do the speaking... and He will be sure to tell you right where you messed up again. You know why? Because he knows each and every sin that mad Him hurt a little more, each sin that made Him bleed a little more, each sin that Him die. Time after time He comtinues to forgive us though. That's what so wonderful. I remember, right after I was saved, "Just As I Am" became my favorite song. I would play it on the piano, and I remember just crying before I had gotten through the first verse. I felt so unworthy, so sinful, so miserable. Taking all my horrible sins to Jesus to take care of. I remember thinking, He must get so tired of carrying everyone's burdens, and the burdens just kept growing, and growing. Well, yeah... that's pretty much what I've been thinking about all day. I wish I would learn to cry again, when I sing this song.

Just as I am, without one plea
But that thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidd'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb Of God, I come! I come!

Well, I hope you all had a great day... and I hope you will have a great night...
I love you all...
