God has blessed me with so much, and I really felt guilty for a while because I was not appreciating it. How could a God still love me and take care of me when I was pushing Him away while saying, "No thank you. I got this." Which, in all honesty, I really did not "have" this. Then after prompted to be ready to tell and explain my favorite Bible verse on the last night of our Journey Group (Bible Study group) the other night, I picked up my Bible and read a passage that I have leaned on so many times, but had let grow cold in my heart.
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
The reason I love this passage so much is because no matter how much we push God away and say, "No, I got this." The harder he holds on. He is not going to let me go; I cannot and will not be separated from Him.
I don't have anything crafty to show today. Even though I had to take a break from hobbying, I was still creating things for projects and such, but I may post those at a late date (Besides I have to get my camera fixed. It decided to break in all the chaos). However, I do plan on some much needed crafty time this week. I need to make things for Mother's Day, and my husband is graduating Saturday!!! Yay!
Sorry for the long rant, but I wanted to say Hi. I Will Be Back! =-)
