Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
God loves me. Jesus died for me when I was deep in sin. His love is what draws me to Him everyday. His love is what keeps me going. And He continues to bless me and give me the desires of my heart because He is just good like that.
Even on days when it is hard for me, like today. I’m frantically running around trying to get two babies ready for story time at the library. I’m trying to tend to them so much sometimes that I look like a total mess, like today. I show up at story time with wet hair and no make up. I had to ask the librarian to hold my youngest baby just so I can go to the bathroom, because I forgot to do that too. I just felt plain pathetic.
Looking back on days like today will one day probably be humorous to me, but not today. What helps is just knowing the love that God has for me, even when I am a total mess. God loves me and He is close to me. He knows the kind of day I am having before I have it. It comforts me so much to know that there is a huge God who loves me like He does. And He can love me and you the same special way, just as if we are the only ones He loves. God is just good like that.
I am reminded how good He is every time I look around. My two babies are God’s goodness to me, even though I can’t seem to brush my hair. I don’t want to rush through life. The messy moments are as just as important as the nice ones. They all fit together perfectly and work to glorify God and His goodness.
