While going through one of the darkest times in my life, my heart was drawn to one of Matt Redman’s most popular songs, 10,000 reasons. In spite of unspeakable pain, I knew that God had never left me nor forsaken me. As I was worshipping God through this song, I was overwhelmed by God’s goodness and faithfulness in my life and I knew I had more than 10,000 reasons for my heart to sing of His praises. And thus, this blog started.
God, revealed through his Son, Jesus Christ, is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This same God who has been carrying us from our mother’s wombs until now is faithful to carry us through each and every season we come face to face with.
In my mind’s eye, I can picture the Footprints illustration we are all familiar with. During seasons of spring and summer, when all is well and the sun is shining, we see two sets of footprints on the sand: one that belongs to a child of God and the other belonging to Jesus Christ. During times of winter when everything is dead with no sign of any life budding forth, you only notice one set of footprints in the sand. But, we know how this story ends, right? That set of footprints belong to our loving Father, who picks us up and carries us in his arms when He knows we are not able to walk on our own. Hallelujah! What a Savior we have!!
The One who called us is faithful to fulfill his purposes for us until the day of Jesus Christ. I’d like to share in this blog snippets of my life, truths I’ve learned along the way, joys and sorrows, hobbies and interests. My prayer is that this blog will always point myself and others to Jesus, who is the ONLY one who can fix us, wipe away our tears, and love us beyond what we deserve or hope. Fix those pretty eyes on Jesus, the author, perfecter, and pioneer of our faith, and keep running.
