As I listened to “He’s God” by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, I began to reminisce about some of the things the Lord delivered me from. I am in awe right now just thinking about the mercy of God.
There was a time when I used to have to wait at the bust stop in the snow with my oldest daughter. One particular time as we waited (with my daughter in a stroller), a relative actually just drove by without stopping, and he actually saw us.
I remember that tonight because God delivered me from those harsh years. I mean, He made sure He blessed us exceedingly because, truthfully, we really have not been on public transportation since that time. I would travel that way if I needed to, but God even lifted me above that particular situation, for He is faithful and He did not want to leave any room in my life where the devil could insultingly say, “God let that happen you and see He didn’t repay you for your suffering.”
No, God restored me. Things are never perfect in my world, but He made sure He deposited in me His Holy Spirit. Yes, He gave me material things, things I thought I could never live without. Now, none of those material items matter to me. Today I choose God over all of those things.
Why? Because He washed shame from my soul. He gave me hope. He thought I was good enough. He loved me back to health. Then he sent a man my way who also believed I was worthy of love.
The funny thing is, when I first met my husband, he and his niece gave me ride to UMASS Boston. God is too funny.
And that is why I am in love with the only God who restored and redeemed my life.
Your turn, tell me why you are so in love with Jesus.
