    I will gladly follow God, and obey Him. Despite going through so much, I feel that He has blessed my life with so much good to get through it all.

    Sometimes it's hard to understand how God views any of us as good men. He looks within to the heart and sees things in us we don't see as easily if at all. Personally I feel like a wretched slime ball unworthy of God's attention let alone his love and guidance in my life. But time and time again faithfully, he proves everlasting. He is always and I mean always he is there. Not with a cruel harsh hand either. It's always with supreme love and kindness. I don't know how close anybody else is to God but I feel really close to him. It's not because of my good works either because I have much sin and shame and error. It's only because of his timeless loving mercy and grace I suppose, not really sure how anybody or any God can be so perfect but mine is. Ours is.

    We must remember that “a little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”
  • Blessed be the Lord so high.
