It looks as though it has been awhile since I have been inspired to write anything. More accurately, I just never make it a priority to write; I am working to change that fact. I have a lot on my mind these days and will need to find the time and the words to share over the summer months... stay tuned!
Here’s what’s on my mind today… have you ever had one of those days? The kind of day where nothing goes as planned and every conversation with anyone seems to end badly? The kind of day where you’re sweating before 7:30am and you haven’t really done much to show for it? The kind of day that is sunny everywhere you look but it seems as though a black cloud is following you around, raining on your every move? The kind of day where everything you try to say comes out wrong and gets misinterpreted by even the ones you love? The kind of day that erodes your hope in humanity and hiding in a cave seems a better alternative? The kind of day that can’t come to an end soon enough?
I affectionally refer to these types of days as “black flag days” (thank you King’s X).
I’ve learned to wave the “white flag” of surrender on days like today and thank God for His unending grace and mercy in and over my life. I am thankful that Jesus loves me unconditionally because of who He is and not because of who I am or anything I have done or not done.
May you find comfort in these truths from God’s Word to us on your “black flag days”!
“My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” -Jesus, 2 Corinthians 12:9 (the Message)
“Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it.” Ephesians 2:8 (the Message)
