Good morning my Savior, I would love to just take a moment to thank You for Your Safe Keeping and Your unmerited Favor towards me.
Read a little note this morning on a card from an unexpected source that I was ‘missed’ at a recent event. Funny how that causes that something on the inside to explode with a song of gratitude! Hard to describe or even understand but it’s like it shoots down all the little armies in your head that your not accepted or your not wanted. You are a misfit and don’t belong to this part of the country. Your name has a label attached to it that screams MISFIT.
How easily we box our self up, secure the lid with layered folds and take ourselves to the storage room where we keep all the maybe need or want someday rather than in the family room where its use is loved and needed most every day. My Great God, I hate when I do that to myself. At times this behavior is such a normal response that I rarely catch when I’ve done it; I only wake up boxed in and unable to find my way out. But today I am throwing open the box, AGAIN, and taking hold of This Love from You, my Savior, with Your Strength that has come from a sister of character. And as her example of Your Love I want to pass on the Love found to those I am in contact with. Loving You with all my heart and others as myself.
