180 Days of Boasting about God – Day 172

I will not lie… This month has been particularly challenging.

But the word on Sunday was that I should command my soul and body to praise the Lord.

That’s what I’ve been doing and I works. For the duration odd worship, I feel neither frustrated or tired.

Everytime I worship God, I feel good.

I found myself binge watching an American reality TV show. It was very entertaining as it was packed with drama.

But as I watched, I couldn’t help but wonder if they were genuinely happy with that level of drama on the regular. I can’t imagine how broken those characters were as they moved from relationship to relationship, backstabbed their friends, and were engaged in frequent fights.

I just wanted to give them Jesus. I know that I too was “broken beyond repair” and I know that I was emotionally unpleasant. Still, I encountered God and surrendered my life to him because of Jesus’ death on the cross. And while I can’t say I’m fully restored, I must state that that unrepairable brokenness was reshaped into someone I never could have imagined I’d be.

I accessed a life changing power source, that’s who I’m boasting about today.

I will never get tired of the reflecting on the sacrifice of Jesus.

He left heaven and became flesh to be an example and an offering. He did this out of his love for me and his desire to see me having a right relationship with the Father.

He was beaten mercilessly, crucified on the cross, and buried in a tomb. But 3 days later, he rose from the dead.

Thank you for your sacrifice.
