I don’t even know where to begin. The Lord had to humble me and remind me of a very important thing. Grace.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like I have to prove my faith to the world. As a wife, as a mother, as a leader, I feel like I have something to prove. I’m unsure if I’m proving my faith to myself, or to my family, or to my congregation… I’m not sure. But, it’s there.
The Lord keeps reminding me that His love for me is not based on what I do, or how much I know. It’s based on Grace. There is nothing I can do, good or bad, that will change Gods love for me.
I keep striving to be self-sufficient. “Lord, I can do it all. I’m unstoppable! No one can stop me.” Oh let me be carful before You bring me to a complete halt.
There is nothing wrong with trying to do my best. I just think my mistake comes in when I’m trying to prove my faith. Sometimes Lord, I try to prove my faith to You.
Prove what? There is nothing I can bring that will make me righteous before Your Throne. Only Grace.
The same way that I need your Grace in the worst times of my life, remind me that I also need it at my BEST!
Keep humbling me LORD! I don’t care about my surroundings anymore. I don’t need to prove anything. I know where I stand and I am more than certain that You know my heart. I want more of You. Please push me to the side and replace me with You.
That’s all I need.
That’s all I want.
