Now, the important thing is that your way of life should be as the gospel of Christ requires, so that, whether or not I am able to go and see you, I will hear that you are standing firm with one common purpose and that with only one desire you are fighting together for the faith of the gospel. (Philippians 1:27 GNB)
Many times when people hear you praising The Lord or hear that you go to church they think you are proclaiming to be perfect. Let me tell you, that is not what that means. For me, I can tell you in all sincerity that I am not perfect nor am I close. I love The Lord, I believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, that he died and was resurrected, that makes me a Christian, not perfect.
I trust when things look crazy, I trust when I’m insecure, when I’m lost, when my children are crazy, when the bills are due and I don’t have enough money, when I’m happy and when I’m sad. I trust in The Lord with every part of me, I don’t have a plan B, I don’t have another choice because he has shown me what he will do. I look back over my life and I realized that through all the worrying, plotting, planning, lists, lies, budgets, sleepless nights and tough days I HAVE NEVER SOLVED ONE OF MY OWN PROBLEMS! I used to say, it worked itself out, that was a joke, God worked it out and it never looked quite like I prayed for but it was always what I needed, not what I wanted.
So, when I say I love The Lord, I do, when you say, I think I’m perfect, I’m not , I just have faith that Jesus’s love is perfect and he’s got me!
