Have you ever felt so lazy that you didn't want to do anything no matter how much it needed to get done and how important it was.
I have. And that's what I feel like right now.
This morning I skipped my accounting class. I didn't do the homework. I looked at it and didn't understand it and so I didn't bother to get help. So when it was time to get up I told my mom that I am going for 2 pm because I have a mid term today.
I indeed do have a mid term for a different class. But it felt so good to skip the accounting class. So I am getting ready for the mid term and I feel like I can pass 100 percent but only with the help of our Lord. Because He is capable of doing anything that He wants. And nothing is up to us no matter what.
But I just wanted to write today because I want to encourage each and everyone. That no matter how much we feel that We have failed, no matter how much we feel that we are no good. God continues to believe in us. We have to believe and have faith.
... reliance on the certainty that God has a pattern for my life when everything seems meaningless
... remembering I am God's priceless treasure when I feel utterly useless
... depending on the fact that God is Love - not on my ability to figure
out the why's in the midst of smashed hopes, reversal, and tragedy
... keeping on when I am dog tired, discouraged, disillusioned, deserted, dusty and dry and I cast on His strength alone
... realizing that I am useful to God, not in spite of my scars, but because of them
... confidence that God is acting for my highest good when He answers "No" to my prayers
... accepting the truth that, in spite of the wreckage and grief I've
caused, God who has wiped the slate clean and delights in me
... recognizing that God is the Lord of time when my idea of timing doesn't agree with his
... not a vague hope of a happy here after but an assurance of Heaven based on my trust in Christ's death as payment for my sins
... remembering that, though my way is dark as night to me, God can see and guides me unerringly
... doing the right thing regardless of the consequences knowing God will turn the ultimate effect to good
... the conviction the Promiser keeps His promises.
