I think we've all had one of those days where it seems like our brain doesn't function at full capacity, and seemingly everything around us falls apart.
Yep, that was today for me.
It was a pretty tough day. One thing after another went wrong or I faced yet one more thing I'd managed to fail on. And then at the very end I wasn't paying enough attention to where I was going since I was in such a hurry, and I slammed into something quite hard and sharp in the warehouse that scraped up my arm pretty good. It was mind-numbingly painful, while for most people it'd be just like a big scratch... with the fibro our pain tolerances and awarenesses are through the roof on a regular basis. Ohhhh it hurttttt!! That was the last straw for me and I nearly broke down for a second time today.
You know, when we are at our weakest, fail on every human level, and can't figure out how we'll begin to make it through the day... I'm reminded of God's grace. He made the ultimate sacrifice for us by sending his Son to come to earth as a human, live among us, and then die on the cross for our sins. He graciously extends his love and goodness to us, despite all our faults, as long as we cling to him.
I trusted Christ as my Savior at the very young age of 5. I've been through a lot in my life (albeit not as much as some people!), have rededicated myself to him several times at church camp and/or youth outings, and am only in the past few years really beginning to understand and grasp the real truth of what that means for the rest of my life. I'm no longer naive or stupid about the way the world works... I know that stuff now. So I know even better now how to cling to my Savior, rest in his grace, and trust in his sovereignty. But I would only know that now from all of the difficult things I've gone through... every difficult situation, even if immediately I don't react the best... I find my way back to him even stronger than before. I know he will never leave me. I know he is my everything. I hope he is your everything too.
Cling to the cross. Rest in his grace. Trust in his sovereignty. And if you haven't done it yet, I pray you will accept Christ as your Savior today so that you too will know what it's like to be in a relationship with our lord of Lords and king of Kings... Almighty God.
