"...Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."-God, Hebrews 13:5b (NIV)
One thing I do understand in the middle of the storms of this life is that God loves me. So far, the year 2009 has been a very tough year for me, in my estimation, perhaps one of my top 3 most difficult. Maybe deep down, that's why my postings have been scarce, even non-existent. Yes, I've been busy with my coaching business, but that probably wasn't the main culprit.
As I've tried to make sense of and cope with a close friend's "disappearance", as well as deal with some other family issues, I'm trying to lean on God so I can learn the lesson He wants me to learn. I'm learning...and I think I'm ready to start writing here at Bread Crumbs again.
My lesson and the lesson for all of us is that Jesus is the only person who will never let us down. He won't deceive us. He won't betray us. He won't desert us. What a relief.
I can know He loves me because He laid down His life for me. (John 15:13). In every season, no matter what I've done or how alone I feel, I can know He loves me. Maybe that's why the tears come every time I hear the song in the video below from Hillsong, "At the Cross". Take a few minutes to listen, pray and take in God's love for you. Remember, He will always love you, just the way you are.
