A Borrowed Quote  

Gratitude Day 234

Tues., Mar. 19, 2019

Hebrew 4:16 – So whenever we are in need, we should come bravely before the throne of our merciful God. There we will be treated with undeserved kindness, and we will find help.

best days God

I so want this book and this verse to be something I came up with. But they aren’t.

No, I simply saw this photo and decided that I like this saying enough, I’m going to borrow it.

May I never forget on my best day, that I still need God as desperately as I did on my worst.

How easy it is to forget that we need God EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Good days. Bad days. In-between days. Cold days. Hot days. Dark days. Sunny days. Quiet days. Loud days. Difficult days. Celebratory days.

We need God every single day.

No less than yesterday. No more than tomorrow.

When we only turn to God on the days that are challenging, we often think God isn’t there for us. I don’t think this is the case. I think it’s just a lot easier to see God on those awful days when we know what it’s like to see God on a good day. A happy day. A regular day.

If we only expect God to show up when WE need God, then we’re missing out on the fullness of God. We fail to allow God to be with us through the wide-range of life experiences. We keep God in a box which limits OUR ability to experience the full joy of God being a part of our lives.

When we celebrate God-in-our-lives on good days, then we can spot God on my difficult days. We already know God’s voice in our lives. We put ourselves in a position where we can experience so much more of God.

I want God with me on the great days. I want God with me when something spectacular happens. I want God with me when there is a big or little reason to celebrate.

I also want God with me when I’m struggling. I want God with me when I’m distraught. And I certainly want God with me when I’m upset, disappointed and angry.

The great thing? God is there every single one of those days … and more. It’s me who sometimes moves God. God doesn’t move. Thanks be to God.

May I never forget on my best day, that I still need God as desperately as I did on my worst.

And if you like this saying, you can borrow it as well.

For God showing up every day, I am grateful.

Holy God – thank you for showing up in my life today. Thanks for being there yesterday. And yep, I know you’ll be there tomorrow. May I not forget to look for you, expect you and acknowledge you in my life every day. Amen.

Blessings –

Dianne
