It is not about me "getting it right" but it is absolutely about God doing right in me, for me, letting me do right though the power of the Spirit of God. No matter if a day gets off to a joyous sunrise and flowers start, or if the sleet is trapping me inside on a grey and blustery day, God's love for me does not change. My feelings are one of the gifts God showers on me but it is my responsibility to be clear about the difference between what I feel and what is true. I may feel someone does not like me, when in truth they are just consumed by their own sorrows and fears. I may feel I will fail if I step up to claim a challenging opportunity, but that feeling is no more an omen of failure than a feeling that "I can't fail" is assurance of being a success in the eyes of the world.
So whether I am enjoying a day of laughter and love with family and friends or holding the hand of a frightened neighbor as we wait for family to arrive, or being frozen by fear for myself or my loved ones, my choices remain the same: act in love and kindness and mercy OR let fear, resentment or old hurt feelings take up room where Love longs to reside.
I can affirm with confidence and hope: GOD CARES ABOUT ME
Philippians 1:6 I’m sure about this: the one who started a good work in you will stay with you to complete the job by the day of Christ Jesus.
