A Beautfiul Saturday Morning

Here I sit at work on a beautiful saturday morning. Will is eating lunch and I’m trying my best to let him maintain as much of his independence as possible. I’ve always been a big advocate of allowing people to maintain as much of their independence as possible. In fact, I have that so much ingrained in my mind that I think at times its a curse. I have been on the flip side of not wanting to need people and seen so many times how if you need people, they will either eventually leave or hurt you deeply or maybe once in a great great while, you will come across someone who will be the person God made them to be in your life and you can’t imagine your life without them. God has beeen teaching me this lesson quite heavily lately…that we were’n’t mean to live life alone. The Bible says we are to bear eachother’s burdens. (Question: How are we to share each other’s burdens if we dont share our burdens with others?…We can’t.) It’s a terribly humbling experience to come to the end of yourself and admit you are human and ask for help. God already knows you are human. Nothing we tell Him can shock Him. He is all-knowing. Yet for some reason, it seems to be easier to tell someone who will be shocked, potentially reject and hurt us, exactly how we feel and what we are going through than to tell the one and only being who will NEVER NEVER leave us, reject us, comfort us…what we are feeling (knowing He has felt everything we do). Why is this? Because Satan (the great deciever) has done a fantastic job at causing us to believe God will reject us and never want anything to do with us again. It’s critical for us as God’s children to remember and somehow train our minds to remember that this is 100% opposite of what God’s word tells us. It’s mind boggling to me. I don’t fully understand why God works the way He does, why He loves me like He does, but though His ways are sometimes strange, what could be stranger than God in a manger? I love you all. He loves you all. You are loved.
