WORTH IT


" I didn't say it would be easy... I only said it would be worth it


I was at a friends house when I saw this quote hanging on her wall. It had a picture of Jesus reaching out to a little boy who was curled up in a corner with bruises on his legs and tears running down his face. The image of God helping a person ,who fell on the ground as a little boy and was picked up by Jesus as a strong man, popped into my head. The idea is that no matter what we go through, no matter how hard we fall, no matter who tries to drag us down, if we stick through it and trust in God's love, it will be worth it in the end. God is great and he can reach us wherever we are. If we have him, we have everything. And though the road is long, and growing more narrow every second, it is going to be worth it.

"How Amazing is God?"

How Amazing is God?

How amazing is God that the universe fits the width of his hand, yet paints the sunsets that take our breath away. That puts the ridges and patterns on the smallest of butterflies and detailed our face to His desire before we were born.
How amazing is God that his voice is like thunder, yet comes to us in a whisper softer than a feather. That is more beautiful than the tinkling of wind chime and more powerful than the most massive earthquake. That breathed life into darkness and formed light and turned off the sun to form night.
Ho amazing is God that his sight is too mighty for us to see, yet we see him the calmest of gardens to the roughest of storms. That his very image blinds a man who has seen to no limit but looks us dead on when we see in every breathing tree and every little stream. That we see in the faces of our family.
How amazing is God?
How powerful his being?
How strong his love?
How AMAZING is God?

I was in the middle of church service when this poem popped into my mind. I immediately grabbed my notebook and jotted it down. God's love hit me with this poem and I wept when I read the words. We will never know how amazing God is. Our minds cannot percieve it. I hope you enjoy readingthis as much as I enjoyed writing it...
