As I said before my deepest thoughts often come when I’m out in nature walking. A few weeks ago these words came to me, “The God of all eternity lives inside of me.” Just one small sentence and truth I’ve known since a small child but for some reason it hit me like a stack of bricks. How profound is that? The God of everything, all time and all knowledge lives inside of me. I’m in awe of His glory and his love for me more daily.
I do most of my deepest thinking while going for my daily evening walk. Tonight a thought seemed to come to my head out of no where. That thought was, “God is like a puppy.” Your thought after reading that may be like the thoughts I had after I heard that in my brain. But then I realized it was true.
Think of a puppy or a dog in general. They have been called mans best friend long back into history and are loyal to death. They love with a love that is unconditional and even when you react with hate they still love you and give their love fully. Some even take their anger out on their dogs even though they are not responsible.
Starting to understand? God is a lot like a puppy. He loves us no matter what. The greatest unconditional love. Even when we blame him for or problems and are mad at him he doesn’t leave us. He wants us. He is loyal to his word. He won’t leave us or forsake us. He is mans best friend and he will never stop loving and caring for us. Take comfort in that my friends.
Hey sons and daughters of the King!
Before I tell you today’s dare I want to tell you a couple of things first. God has been showing me lately so many things. One of those things is that we can’t best help and take care of someone else unless we are taking care of ourselves too. If we aren’t feeding ourselves how can we feed someone else? If we aren’t growing closer to God how can we help someone else grow closer to God? If we haven’t been through hard things how can we help someone else through the fire? How can we tell someone to find their worth in Christ if we can’t seem to do that ourselves? Words are cheap. The way we live our life speaks so much louder than our words. If I hear someone say my life will be better if I spend more time praying but the person who told me that never prayers how can I believe them? Be the change you want to see in the world. Be a light. Be the one who follows God when no one else is. And that my friends is todays dare. Now go change the world!
