Every day we have to make decision whether to push ahead or pull back. It can be as simple as whether we rush into the car park for our daily work, or taking our time to letting someone take our place in the supermarket queue, or jumping in between two people who are arguing. From the simple to the complex, we have to make these decisions.
I was cycling the exact same route for several days in a row. However, the wind direction – and speed – changed each day. I went from having a tail wind on a stretch of road one day, to a head wind on the same section of road the next. I saw my average speed double with the wind behind me, and drop to half when it was against me. It was quite noticeable!
God’s love for us is always overwhelming. I find I mind boggling!! That He loves me how much? After everything I’ve done? Maybe that’s why we sometimes prefer not to consider. It’s almost like we prefer to stay away, so we don’t feel the fullness of His love for us. But God loves us, in order that we can be closer to Him. Conviction and Guilt are two words that are often used in pulpits, books and Christian conversations. But, they really do matter when it comes to God’s love.
