My relationship with Jesus is like that sometimes. I just LOVE feeling His presence and seeing Him work in our lives. I love it when He just blesses my heart with a word of encouragement or a kiss from my dear husband or one of my babies. I feel His light and love surrounding me, just like the sun surrounded us yesterday.
And then sometimes, I allow sin to fester. I know that my attitude is wrong, that my words were harsh, that I'm working in my own strength, not His. And I can feel the clouds. It might be only slightly uncomfortable at first. I'll just do something nice to make up for it. I'll just eat that piece of chocolate to make myself feel better. Maybe I'll take a long nap. And pretty soon, the clouds are thick.
Just like yesterday, the sun never went away. The clouds just covered it.
My prayer is that I will apologize quickly when I have sinned against my family. That I will have a spirit of humility and grace and mercy and meekness.
Lord, I need you every hour.
Looking forward to another beautifully sunny day tomorrow.
I will make it a point to look up and enjoy the radiance of God's glory.
In Love With Jesus, the Author & Finisher of my faith,
This is a new favorite song of ours. Be blessed, my friend!
