His Grace Is Greater Than All My Doubts

My heart is overflowing with a beautiful thought! I will write a lovely poem to the King, for I am as full of words as the speediest writer pouring out his story.” Psalm 45:1 TLB

 God's grace is greater than all my doubts.
 Only He can drive them out.
 I pray for what I cannot see
 And trust the One who set me free. 

 I fall before the throne of grace
 Boldly asking for a place
 That quiets all my hurts and fears
 That this world brings with all its tears. 

 What promise shall we not believe?
 He gave His life upon a tree
 That you and I would always know
 The greatest love He could bestow. 

 So doubt I tell you, "You must go!"
 I turn to Him, because He knows
 The secrets bound inside my soul.
 There's nothing that He does not know. 

 My Savior calls me by my name.
 He takes my hand and heals my shame.
 He says to me, "I understand.
 I know the pain this life demands." 

"Come to me and make your plea
Nothing is too hard for me.
Come to me and you will know
The peace and love that heals your soul."

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 KJV Read full chapter

With Love,

Soften My Heart, Lord

Someone close to me recently told me she was selling everything she owns and moving to a 3rd World country to help orphaned and abandoned children. I was shocked and speechless. I could hear my heart pounding in my chest. (Your moving where?)

“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.” Proverbs 3:27 NLT

She explained that God had called her and had confirmed it over and over. What could I say? I didn’t want to encourage her. What if it wasn’t God? But I didn’t want to discourage her either. What if it was? I could only listen quietly.

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27 NIV

Does God really call us to sell all and follow Him? That’s okay for “missionaries”, but when it’s someone you love, well, that’s different. I didn’t realize how different until it confronted me head-on. I doubt you will be able to understand the impact of my experience unless you experience it for yourself.

“Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
    The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.” Psalm 41:1 NLT

My faith is being tested to the core. As long as I focus on God’s Word, I’m not in a panic. But to stay strong, I have had to continually stay focused on the Lord and stay in the Word. By immersing myself in the Word over the last few weeks, I have gone from “numb and shock” to peace. It has been an amazing process.

“Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
    The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.” Psalm 41:1 NLT

How easily we can be swept up in our personal lives and never give thought to the plight of so many living in poverty and despair. For the most part, many American Christians live in a bubble. They don’t even observe the poor in their own town or city that may be only a few miles away.

“But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won’t help him—how can God’s love be within him?” 1 John 3:17 TLB

You won’t see them at Dillards or Chicos. You won’t see them in a nice restaurant or your favorite nail salon. You won’t even see them in your neighborhood. They may be hidden away, but they aren’t far away.

“Whoever gives to the poor will lack nothing, but those who close their eyes to poverty will be cursed.” Proverbs 28:27

Dear Heavenly Father, Soften our hearts. Create in us compassion and kindness. Forgive us for being selfish. Show us your will and lead us. Strengthen our faith in you. Guide and direct our way every single day. For you are our God, the Holy One, worthy to be praised. Amen

With Love, 

Cindy

Jesus said, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30 MSG
