Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. – 1 Corinthians 11:1
Would God be more glorified by my silence than my humor?
Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
keep watch over the door of my lips!
Where was God in all the goodness of 2012?
How can God be righteous and do so much good to us who are so unrighteous?
So as the year ends, I bow my head as an undeserving sinner, amazed that I have not been swept away. And even more, that because of Jesus, I am forgiven, adopted into God’s family, and destined for eternal life.
God has been good to us. And his best gift is the one that will be there when all the others fail. Jesus, crucified, risen, reigning.
“How long, O, Lord? How long before you return to eradicate all evil, redeem all tragedies, and make all things new? How long, O, Lord, how long? Your Bride weeps and waits for you.”
One of my favorite verses and a great reminder!
