1 Peter 1:3-4 (MSG) What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this
Father of our Master Jesus! Because
Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything
to live for, including a future in heaven – and the future starts now!
Let’s keep digging…
I encourage you to make time to
identify your most grateful
things – those that make your heart swell and evoke tears of appreciation. For some, they may be mixed with salty sweet
tears of grief.
We are certainly grateful for all of
God’s blessings, but how about God Himself?
I am beyond grateful to worship a God
who cares about me, a small blip in His larger story. The God of the universe created all people,
and me in particular, so that He could love me and I Him. He graciously lets me choose to whether or
not to return His love.
My Father is perfection and glory
beyond imagination! And yet He invites a
messed up girl like me into His presence.
My God left heaven, limited Himself within a human body, and died a
brutal death so I would be presentable to the Father.
Jesus knows every corner of my heart
– my resentment, judgment, disobedience, and hatred – and loves me anyway. I don’t deserve His forgiveness. Nor can I earn His love. God came down from heaven to get me and is
overjoyed that I have taken hold of His hand.
You are blessed with the same
amazing God. Let your heart swell in His
Like a productive garden, a rich
relationship should be tended regularly.
