Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! 1 John 3:1
No matter how our emotions change, on any particular day according to our circumstances, I am so glad that God never changes. He is holy, unchangeable and loving. I re-discovered and appreciated that yesterday. Feeling the effects of a Covid vaccine in my body, I was in a bad mood, not wanting to be slowed down by a temperature and dizziness. I had so much I wanted to do that it was hard to sit still but I had to because my head was spinning. All my emotions revolved around being irritated that I was wasting a day. I felt bad about my attitude but I could not shake it. Eventually, I prayed about how I felt. I felt like an unhappy child.
Just like a child will come to the end of themselves before asking for help, I did that. I did all I could do to comfort myself and THEN I turned to God. He showed me that He was there the whole time I was wallowing in pity, waiting for me to ask for His help. He reminded me, like a parent, that I can come to Him for, what seems to me to be the silliest of reasons. He tells me we are still His children, no matter how old we are. He tells me He has His own reasons for what He allows us to experience, even being sick. I love that He is like this all the time, holy and in control. Unlike us, He never has an unholy moment. He is in perfect control even when we are not, and that’s perfectly okay.
With much love from the Father, and praise to the Father,
