This week leading up to the Easter weekend is really quite special for me. It reminds me of Jesus great sacrifice He paid for my life, and not only that but how He loved me before that time and how much now.
As I work out the principles in Celebrate Recovery on a day to day basis, I see how important my relationship with Him has become. Just as the psalmist declares my soul longs after you,
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no waternothing can quench that thirst but Him.
I have had to face reality that I have not always been like this, nor do I pretend to be either, relationships are hard work, taking enormous effort at times too. But it is my sincere prayer that as I try God will help me and He will.
Working alongside people can be very stretching indeed but none the less that is where I have been called and do so as my Lord leads…
I love others, A LOT, I want them to see how much God loves them too and how much he has to offer them.
Today as I go about my daily duties, my prayer is that God will create in me a clean heart
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
So that I may be all that He desires for me….
