Five Minute Friday: HERE
So often we are consumed by WHAT WE MUST DO to get the approval or love of others.
How do I get people to like me? How do I keep my friends? How should I act? What should I say so I don't offend anyone?
We go there to their world. We act like we believe what they believe. We do what they do. All to be accepted.
But God's not like that. We don't have to go "there" for Him. He meets us HERE, right where we are.
What an amazing gift that is.
You see, I will never be good enough.
I will never be holy enough.
I will always be imperfect
whatever you want to call it.
And that's ok. He meets me here where I am, in my brokenness and loves me anyway.
Thank you God for that gift.
Thank you for not requiring anything of me other than surrender.
