"There is a world of difference between knowing what to do
and actually doing it..."
God in His perfect love and endless mercy has given me the opportunity to make things right. He's been hitting the same nail on the head over, and over, and over, and over, and I thought if I ignored Him just a little longer, He'd give up. Fortunately God will never give up on me and He will never leave me, but He loves me far too much to leave me where I am.
Today, He hit the nail for the last time, and this time, it went all the way in... ouch. I rest in knowing that God discplines those He loves, and that He is molding me to be more like Him, and that all things work together for good for those who love Him. I thank Him today that He gave me opportunity to walk in humility, to repent and choose to walk towards the light. I know that my obedience will bring Him glory and show others His forgiveness and faithfulness.
Crossing over the world of difference, and ready to make a difference...
