I'm not going to lie, these past few weeks have been difficult and challenging. The Lord has been teaching me some hard things, and I keep having to remind myself that He disciplines those whom He loves. This past month or so has been such an emotional roller coaster. But the one thing that has kept me sane are these little nuggets of truth that the Lord keeps bringing before me. He is so good. He is faithful, and He is so worthy of my everything. I do not want to forget my first love. His love is everlasting, and His grace is sufficient for me. If grace is an ocean, I am truly sinking.
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
I am so grateful to know that He knows how I feel. Sometimes I forget that, but I am so grateful to know that He knows exactly how I feel and that He allows me to come to Him just as I am.
