We all have thorns in the flesh at times. Some are relieved and some remain with us. I believe those thorns are there to help us focus on God and to remind us of his love, provision and strength. I praise God in the good times and the bad.
When my last child went to college and my husband died just a few short months later, I had an identity crisis. I have come to realize that my identity never changed, but my roles did. I am a child of God and my identity lies in Christ.
We all have hobbies and families and pets we love to talk about, but where does God fit into our conversations. What could be a more important and more exciting subject than talking about the creator of the world who gives us salvation?
A Mighty God
Wow! What a mighty God we serve; so pure, so righteous, and so lovingly merciful. None of us is worthyenough to call on His name, but He loved us so much that He sent His only Son to die and cover our life of sin and shame.
