Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Today, a rough day, no explanation to that I am sorry, but I do know that the Bible is God’s word and in that, the verse above, tells us that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and that we cannot get to the Father except through accepting Jesus as our Savior and that is exactly what he is, our Savior!
Today as I literally trudge through life I cannot do anything proactive except remind myself of who Jesus is in my life. I keep reminding myself of the sacrifices God made for us and of his love that has absolutely no limits and although today was all but peaceful, I find peace in knowing that I have a Savior who gives me nothing but constant love and grace even in the midst of my tests.
With that I want to share something I read as I woke up this morning: It was a post on facebook that said something along the lines of, ‘when you are going through something hard and don’t know where God is, remember that a teacher doesn’t talk during a test.’ Today that is exactly the thing I needed to wake up to, if only I would have carried it with me through my day things may had gone a little better, but now as I get ready to go to sleep I know that I am being tested and although it is an exam I don’t feel well prepared for I know that the Lord is going to teach me some incredible things along the way.
I also was told tonight by my best friend that if I miss class now or then, if I do bad on an exam or paper now and then that that is absolutely nothing in eternity’s time… how convenient that I am being tested by the Lord and if I fail to learn the point right away or if I miss a thing or two along the way the Lord isn’t going to hold that against me because he knows I, like all of us are human, fall short of who he intended for us to be because of sin. So as I go to sleep in hope of tomorrow being a better day I pray I carry this lesson with me, knowing that I am being tested and that it is alright if I don’t get a perfect score because God still loves me to immeasurable amounts.
