I was thinking about God today. He has been so loving and faithful to me. I wish I could say the same all the time about myself towards Him. I’m not perfect and I will never pretend to be. I’m not even sure I want to be. But I would like to do better than I do now.
I got to thinking about people I care about and how God has worked in their lives. For some of them it took a long time for them to let Him. What made me think of this? A Joyce Meyer message I saw: God will never give up on you. Never forget that. (1 Corinthians 1:9). It’s so true. Others may give up on us, but He won’t. We may give up on ourselves, but He won’t. He believes we are better than we have behaved because He created us.
All of this touched my heart in a poignant way. I think of some people I know who ran so hard away from God, but when they finally realized that they should be running towards Him instead of away, their whole outlook on life changed. Today I will pray for those still running. I ran for years and know what a difference it makes to change directions.
