Never A Dull Moment – Week 1, Day 6

Ok, Friends, I know I have said it before, but at the risk of belaboring a point with you, I MUST say it again: GOD IS SO COOL!  If you’ve already picked up Never A Dull Moment this morning, you know that the first sentence of today’s reading starts, “On my 22nd birthday…”  Well, guess what, TODAY is my 43rd birthday!!  What in the world?!  If you doubt for one second that God is not paying attention, that He has missed something, that we are forgotten or that maybe He ordained everyone else’s days BUT YOURS, this “belaboring” is for you!  God does not miss things.  God is working things out that you don’t even have a clue about yet – big things, little things, things that matter to lots of people and things that will only matter to YOU.  And do you know why?  Because HE LOVES YOU!

God does not waste things.  God does not allow ANYTHING into your life that He cannot USE for your good.  I know that our daily can be crazy.  I know that awful, life-changing things happen.  I know that we don’t always understand WHY.  I know that many times our prayers are not answered the way that we thought/wished/wanted them to be answered, but my friend, GOD IS STILL FOR US.  He loves us.  He does not forget us.  In fact, in my personal quiet time today, I was directed to two different passages that said even if our own families forget us, HE WILL NOT. (Isaiah 49:15-16 & Psalm 27:10).  Hang on to that truth this morning – and every morning.  Everything you know of Our Father and His Son, Jesus, from the WORD – not from your gut, your friend, your bitter distant relative… go with me here – but from the WORD is true.  Ponder the truth.  Speak the truth.  LOOK for ways God is showing up in your life.  I promise you… it makes me teary-eyed as I sit here and type it – HE WILL SHOW UP.  I know from my own personal experience: You WILL know that you are loved.  Just pause for a second and SEE HIM.  He will never disappoint you.
