WFW: It's All about Him
Ever had one of those days when there is just SOOO much to do? This week has been rather crazy for me; with a deadline coming up, today found me running around in circles in a frenzy -- How was I going to get all of this done? Sometimes, there seems to be no end to the problems. I know what you're thinking... we've all had those days, haven't we? Often, when this happens, it is easy to lose sight of God and focus "me" and "my" problems. So after my "escapade," I was all stressed out, BUT everything went well; I made it through (and yes, that means I will have more blogging time, I hope)! At the end of the day, I found myself thanking God; I found myself thinking that, although I messed up, God is so merciful to help me. I was reminded of this verse, so I wanted to offer it as an encouragement... 2 Timothy 2:10-13 "Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself." Oh, one more thing -- Often, when we doubt, we can beat ourselves up for it... We know that God will help us; how could we be so BAD? The good news is that His mercies are new every morning! 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." It's not about us; it's about Him, and His faithfulness toward us!
