ANY WORTH OR RIGHT THAT I may HAVE comes from Almighty God; I have no right or authority of my own. That to me seemingly makes me worthless, makes me of little or no value, but when I read Gods Holy Word I am given pause to hope and to ponder, for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life. Many have come and gone but everyone that has walked this earth were only here because of His magnificent love and grace. There is no difference between the wealthy and the poor, the wise and the foolish, the famous and those of no stature, everyone has been subject unto Him and must give account for all they have done. I look back at my life and ask myself, what have I done to be worthy of His magnificent love and in my humility and reverence I give no reply. I have always known that He was my reason for being here and without Him I could not survive. I have always known that He created me and that I needed to give Him my honor and respect, that does not mean I have always been the one I should have been, the one that He wanted, and the one He had the right to expect for me to be. Many times I have fallen short of where I should have been and I know that without His patience and love I would not be where I am today. As I take time to write I am left feeling somewhat empty and unprepared, I don’t know what good I can accomplish, if any, and I question myself as to its wisdom or value. I can never give Him all that He is due and any effort or expense I now expend will not even the score. I am made to feel that even though I know I can never repay all that He has given me that does not mean I am not to try. God knows my ability and my worth and even then He has asked for me to follow. That doesn’t make me think that I am any more important than I know myself to be but it does assure me of His magnificent goodness and His desire to redeem me. Even now the enemy of my soul would cause me to question and to doubt, I know that I must not listen but his constant clamor causes me to wander and question what I know God is asking me to do.
Like so many times in the past, I will do what I feel He wants and expects for me to do, I am not responsible for the outcome and when I must allow Him to accomplish what I know only He can accomplish, He will follow through. In my life and in the lives of so many, knowing is not believing, and when He tells us His truth we do not give Him the response and the respect he is due. We do not compete for Gods favor and when we place our importance and value on what we give Him and not on what He has already given us, we show our lack of true wisdom and candor. I do not say what I am saying in an attempt to cause anyone to think me more important or spiritual than I know myself to be, the praises of this world and of others holds no true merit and will not give me what I need. If I can give someone, anyone a cause to hope or desire to draw closer to Him and His redeeming presence, then what could be more important, more needed.
