Every Christian has a story to tell; a story of how God saved them from the tyranny of sin and self through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. Each story is one of forgiveness, hope, promise, grace, mercy, and God’s love for a people He has called to be His own.
Every day we need to remind ourselves of the many times God has brought us through; of all the times He has protected us; all the times He has shown us His care and compassion in both great and small ways. He has been faithful even when we have not.
Today, retell your story. Start by recounting to yourself all the many blessings that God has so generously given to you. When you have done that, share the gratitude that is in your heart with someone who needs to hear a story with a happy ending. For no matter how tattered and worn your storybook may look here on earth, if you know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, your story always has a happy ending.
Our God is able to keep us through all the storms of life. He is well able to uphold us with His righteous right hand. He will not let us go even when we no longer have the strength to hang on.
Our God is full of compassion. His love does not fail. Praise our God, for He is good beyond measure.
“The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.” Psalm 103:8
