God’s Acceptance

God’s acceptance of you
Is not based on your “goodness”
You are always in God’s own heart,
For God has said you are His delight!

You cannot become “good”
Without God’s gift of His grace.
His grace is always sufficient
For everyone, including for you.

God loves each, equally,
And He will delight in each.
Far beyond merely “acceptance,”
God loves you. He’s proved it through Jesus!

Conversations

Today I will have a hard conversation
With my Lord about His demands
Of my faithful obedience,
And my sense of His absence;
And what I expect of His actions.

I will listen to His promises,
And I will think about how I live,
My obedience and freedom,
And whom I will welcome.
And what He’ll expect of my actions.

Lord, these issues will be difficult, at best,
Because I’m not sure how I feel.
Lord, I know I have sinned,
And been disobedient.
My actions will change, Lord, I promise!

God’s Sweet Love

The challenging job of a prophet
Is to push us beyond our comfort;
Push us to repent, and be guided
By God’s sweet love for us.

You are not growing if you are grumbling
About surrounding situations.
Glean your lesson, and then move forward
To God’s sweet loving arms.

Transitions can become challenging
Whenever we feel uncertainty.
We need to seek, to search in the Word
And find God’s own sweet love.
