For He answers my prayers in ways that I have never expected.
For He loves me even though I am seriously flawed. He loves me when I reject Him, scold Him and shove Him away when all He wanted for me was the best.
I suffered for my sins. For my selfishness. But I thank Him for forgiving me once and once again, and opening my eyes to let me see what I was, all the hidden sins and hidden desires.
But His grace overflows. I see Him building up the people around me, I see Him working for the good of those who love Him.
His timing is amazing. His plan is perfect.
I cry, I fall down, but He is always there for me, and always will.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
~ Isaiah 55:8-9
And so in this new chapter of my life, I know that with patience, God will teach me His ways.
