One Magnificent Reality

REALITY. Hurt, pain, disappointment, those are just some of the words that come when I think of reality. Reality and crushed dreams... synonymous. Reality is hard. Everyday we are faced with it... what is the reality(ies) in your life that grips your heart and squeezes it unrelentlessly?

Yesterday, as I was alone, (but not really alone!) just me, my thoughts and God, I was convicted that I needed to change how I was living. I needed to change how I thought of reality. Yeah, most realities are hard and and they can seem to keep us from our joy in the LORD. But as a girl saved by God's grace I will choose to live in this reality: God's abounding love.

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus died to save sinners - of whom I am the worst. But for the very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
~1 Timothy 1:14-17

Isn't it amazing how even our "best" words fall so far short? Truly, living daily in the light of the gospel, makes such a difference! Love you!
