Today, I'm thankful for my salvation.
As I reflect over these last 30 days (holy cow, where did the time go?!), I think about all the posts and things I am thankful for. I will admit, 30 days was kind of a long time to go trying to think of new things every day to be thankful for. But the challenge exercised my brain to think of things I would not normally remember to be thankful for.
And really all of it comes down to my salvation and having a God that pursues. Did you read that? A GOD THAT PURSUES. In other words, not a God who is nice enough not to strike me dead when I mess up. Or not a God that sits on his high and mighty throne hoping I will do just the right combination of "good" things to get to be in his presence.
No, this is a God who can't just sit still while I stray. He comes after me. Just like any other parent. Not just hollers to me "Hey, come back here!", but literally moves heaven and earth to be there for me when I call. I always imagined God running down a path to catch up to me.
THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE RUNS AFTER ME. Because he loves me THAT much.
I am blessed.
I am thankful.
