For past two months, besides the Priest’s sermon during Catholic Mass on Sundays, I cannot genuinely say I have taken time out to spend time with God.
As my day went on during the past two months, I did either of these things daily;
1. Rush through reading my devotional to get a word to hold on to;
2. Whisper ‘thank you Jesus‘ in between hours of the day;
3. Think about what I’m most thankful for that day or the day before.
The truth is I gave more attention to other things that were going on in my life but that’s not the point of this post.
It’s 3:29am and I haven’t properly adjusted to the time back here so I’m always up at night and asleep during the day, since I returned last Saturday.
Remember Romans 8:28 ?
“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” – AMPC
I want to point out two things from this scripture. I was thinking about the past two months and I’m not exaggerating but I always had breathtaking testimonies almost every week.
Don’t get me wrong. That I am alive and healthy is a daily testimony that keeps me thankful but these were extra things God did that I wasn’t expecting.
The first: if you love Him, I mean, genuinely love Him, like you know there’s no point and it’s a waste of time without Him, then you can be rest assured of the second thing.
The second: regardless of how things seem, God is really “behind the scenes” working.
So are you just living or almost giving up? Your relationship with God is strained and you feel unworthy or alone.
Stop beating yourself up. Here’s what to do;
Renew your mind by reading Romans 8:28 over and over. Begin to see things working for you because the truth is, low key beyond the physical, things are in place.
God loves you and He is too faithful to fail.
