This morning, it is chilly. The sky is dark and gloomy, as rain clouds form. It has been a dry month. We need the rain. Sometimes, you need rain to appreciate the rainbows and sunshine.
Difficult times in our lives can be, well, difficult. These are the times that I really turn toward God. I know that I cannot do it alone. I need God.
God can turn our sufferings into joys. When I fully turn to God, God starts changing me in good ways. Those things that I have ignored or pushed to the side, God starts mending.
I want to be worthy of God. I want my conduct to be worthy of God. I want my actions to be worthy of God. I want my behavior to be worthy of God. I want to live a life that is worthy of God.
Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
–2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (NKJV)
No matter where we are at, God thinks that we are worthy. Lately, I am at a place, where I want my life to be worthy of God’s goodness and graciousness.
God is good.
God will give us power to overcome the hardest thing. When we think we will never change, God smiles and transforms us from the inside out. I pray that I will be worthy of the name of Jesus Christ to be glorified through me, according to God’s grace.
