Topic: Great Expectations (not about the book) (08/25/11)
I had never felt anger and betrayal like that in my life and I had no problem shouting at God. I figured he knew what I was thinking, so I just said it. Or rather, yelled it. But it turns out, our God cannot be shaken.
My faith was gone, just like my dad. It was there, and then it wasnít. I shut down. I went dark. It was lonely, it was quiet, it was hopeless, and I didnít like it. I begged God to come back to me and restore my faith. He did just that, in such a way that I have never doubted or wavered again. Now I could not be shaken. My faith was restored. I was made whole again. The one who could not forgive, was forgiven.
It was 10 years later when I took another hit. It was cancer. But this time I remained in Godís Grace. I stood strong against the forces. I decided to be thankful for this experience and look for the good in all things. I saw God everywhere, I felt his presence, I knew he was healing me, I knew he was smiling at me.
It doesnít matter what we have to face, itís just that we face it. We donít have to go through the tough stuff alone. God is always with us, all we have to do is acknowledge that, and watch for him. There is none more trustworthy. Dear Father in heaven, help us to be loyal and dedicated only to you. Help us be the followers you want us to be. Amen.
Hebrews 12:28 - Therefore, we must be thankful that we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Because we are thankful, we must serve God with fear and awe in a way that pleases him.
