For the next 31 days, I am going to write. I am simply going to take a few minutes each day to just...write. I'm not sure what I will say. My only hope is that my words on the screen will reflect the transformation I am asking the Lord to do in my heart. Since today is October 3, I will backtrack to Saturday, October 1st, in an effort to align my writings with each day of October. Proverbs 31 says, "She is clothed with strength and dignity." That is my hope. By the end of this month, Father please, help me to find my strength and dignity, the kind that only You can give. And by the way, I stole this idea from another blogger I like to read on a regular basis. She is such an amazing writer. You can check her out at http://www.chattingatthesky.com/.
Day 1 - Saturday, October 1, 2011- A True Friend
Rejection is a big gun. If someone significant in your life has rejected you, that heartache never goes away. No matter how far you have to go back, if someone you loved and trusted dearly walks out of your life, you never forget that pain. It always stays fresh. And when someone else comes along and rejects you again, it's like ripping the scab right off an old wound. Those feelings of betrayal, sadness, and fear come flooding in like a rushing river. But when this happened to me recently, I was reminded that people often fail you, but God never does. And that was all I needed in that moment. Assurance that Jesus is my friend. Jesus will always be my friend. And even after all of the times I have rejected Him in my life, He kept on pursuing me, never giving up, and always wanting me. No one is a friend like Jesus.
