Grace for Today

Right when I think I’m finally figuring out this trusting and waiting on God thing, something totally silly happens which opens up the flood gates of doubt and discontent and I find myself once again face-to-face with my own frail faith. Through tears and hyperventilating this morning a song came to mind that I used to listen to a lot. The lyrics being:

“My faith is like shifting sand, changed by every wave. My faith is like shifting sand, So, I’ll stand on grace.”

Today that is exactly where I’m at. I feel thankful for God’s grace, which doesn’t hold my worry and fear against me, but reaches down to me exactly where I’m at and wraps loving arms around me. He doesn’t promise that it’s all going to be ok. He doesn’t answer my many questions or uncertainties. He doesn’t change my situations. But, He holds me. And he promises to never leave me or forsake me. I don’t always believe him, but that doesn’t change the fact that He will be faithful.

That’s where I’m at today.
