The story of Noah – a man that was probably seen as coo-coo for cocoa puffs and who would have been medicated on numerous levels if he lived in our day – was just a man following God. To be the one soul (plus immediate family of course) chosen to live out the flood is an amazing realization. Our God created a fresh start. I certainly didn’t live through that time, but I find it hard not to see myself there. I relate to the fresh start. I think it’s awesome how God created a fresh start in me when I chose to follow Him.
I carried around regret for a long time but thanks to God, He didn’t leave me there. He loved me too much and knew all the potential I had to serve Him once I was able to let all that go. He has work for me and if I’m hung up inside my own head, I couldn’t be His hands and feet here on earth. Are you hung up on something? He wants to take that away. No pain, no worry, no regrets. He wants you to let it go and follow Him. He has mighty work for you.
He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us,
Oh, how He loves us,
How He loves us all
