In an effort to be fully honest, this morning...as I reached up for His hand from where I had lost sight of absolute truth, He was very honest with me about where my heart had been hiding after I looked away from Him. (that post can be found by clicking here)
I had to deal with that conversation as He carried me back to the boat...but had to "deal with it" in a way that broke my heart as I realized how I had broken His because I had not trusted Him to be my everything.
I had forgotten that my love for Him is shown thru obedience...not thru sacrifice or offerings, but just plain obedience (Jeremiah 7:22-23)...and when I get so wrapped up in what I am doing for or giving to the Lord, I am losing sight of the fact that I am called simply to obey...because I love Him...and nothing more.
So I posted what I did about sinking in the waves...but as I read this post this morning, I realized that I needed to confront the truth too:
I have cheated on my First Love...over and over...and that hurts my heart MORE than the fact that I sank in some water.
I am so thankful for His love...grace...and mercy...that tenderly lifts this sinner up into arms she doesn't deserve so she can be carried to a boat that keeps her safe.
What a might God we serve!!
