Read this great post by missionary Jeremy Hall written from Peru. I hope you can get this attitude in your life today. Thank you Jeremy. God bless you.
When you hear these words someone is normally having problems. I was counseling a couple last night and these words didn’t actually come from their mouths, but I know they were thinking them. How? because I’ve thought them. I think them on occasion.
Well, after hearing a message last night and meditating on God’s word, I want to tell you what I don’t deserve.
I don’t deserve to be sitting where I’m sitting, doing what I’m doing.
I don’t deserve to have this peace that I have, when so many others are suffering without it.
I don’t deserve to know the Creator personally.
I don’t deserve to have my sins forgiven.
I don’t deserve to know that I will be spending eternity with God.
I don’t deserve a Father like him.
I don’t deserve such favor in my life.
I don’t deserve to have the most beautiful wife in the world.
I don’t deserve to have two beautiful, healthy children.
I don’t deserve the other one that is on the way.
I don’t deserve the friends that God has given me.
I don’t deserve the counsel that he has placed in my life.
I don’t deserve to hear messages of truth over and over again about how good God is when their are so
many that have never heard the first time.
I don’t deserve the Spirit within me that fills me with joy.
I could go on and on…..
Phil 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say Rejoice.
