Bless the Lord- Madison Williams

This past weekend I went home in hopes of finishing a half marathon that I had signed up for a week before. The entire morning before my race I was freaked out and doubted that I wasnt going to be able to finish, even though one-third of the race is ability, and two-thirds is mental. I doubted literally anything and everything regarding my race. I didnt believe in myself or my ability. Once the race started, all my doubts turned into determination. I felt like I had completely forgotten everything that I was fearful of that morning. I was so determined to finish thats all my eye could focus on.

 

Thats how the Lord is in pursuing us, hes so determined to know our whole heart. Hes so determined to pursue us and pursue us with his whole heart. He gives us everything that he has. Thats all his eye can focus on. He will leave the 99 to go after the 1, because he loves us so much. If that doesnt prove how much he love us, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death even death on a cross for us. Throughout the fellowship thats something the Lord has shown me. That the Lord chooses me every day because Im his bride. That hes worth it all, and worth my whole heart. Hes enough. Hes sovereign and supreme. When he looks at me Im so valuable and precious nothing can stand against it. Ephesians 2:4-5 say, But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved. Man, I dont know for you, but that just brings me comfort. What brings me comfort is the but God. Its him who made us alive, and its through him Im saved. Its all through his great love. Through all this I can walk in confidence, to Him all be the glory and praise.
