So, last night when I was feeling particularly crappy about some choices I made, and things I said…and the tone of my voice, I read this on Facebook:
When they slept, He was awake. When they broke, He held you up. When every means failed, He saved you. When all the creation left you, He remained. He always remains. Never forget when the storms pushed you to your knees and there was no one else who could help you, He carried you. When you were broken and you swore this time it couldn’t be fixed—never forget who fixed it. Never forget what He saved you from. Never forget how He put you back together. That moment when you felt helpless and alone, never forget who never left. To forget this is the greatest heedlessness. No matter who or what may be beside you now, never forget those moments when it was only Him. Only Him. That is loyalty.
It was shared by Yasmin Mogahed. I’ve never met her, nor have I read her book, but I read something shared by a friend who was quoting something Ms. Mogahed said. I subscribed to her posts. I don’t always agree with what she says, but sometimes, like last night…it was just perfect.
I wanted to save this as a reminder to myself that even when I’m really ugly, dark and twisty, God still loves me. I thought maybe you might need a reminder as well.
