I so often forget that my Father's thoughts toward me are precious. Even when my heart is breaking, or I'm being a little girl with a temper tantrum - He is my Father. My FATHER, a word that used to bring fear and confusion now brings tears to my eyes because I KNOW how much He loves me.
His love is so great and His thoughts toward me are so wonderful and I am so ungrateful! My thoughts toward God are not always so wonderful. I sometimes want to run and hide behind my walls of protection for I am afraid that once again He is asking me to give up too much. But I KNOW this is not TRUTH and I choose to walk in truth.
And the TRUTH is that every day of my life has already been recorded - nothing has caught my Father by surprise. My Father's thoughts toward me are far more wonderful than anything I have ever thought or imagined.
Oh Father forgive my ungrateful heart! Search me, Father and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts.Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.(PS 139:23-24)Give me a heart that longs after you, that is completely filled up with you and who you are. Create in me a clean heart that desires your will for my life, regardless of how it might look to me. Help me to remember that you only have my good in mind.
Hi Sharon - this is another great lesson.ReplyDelete
PS - I like your Christmas look!
A wonderful post, and I love that version of the scriptures. What translation are you quoting from?ReplyDelete
I love that version of Psalm 139. Oh yes - we are complex. But wonderfully? Well, isn't that were we always get tripped up. God says YES and your reminder of truth was beautifully written as usual. I like your new Christmas look too. Love you!ReplyDelete
