I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired. I worked the Customer Expo and Convention my company hosts every year. I am beyond tired. My husband kept referring to it as a retreat. I think he's seen too many TV depictions of conventions. Mine involved WORK, and lots of it.
It just reminds me of how we sometimes let the world cloud our view of something. My husband was relying on the "fun, games and silliness" he's seen previously on TV shows. The reality was far from that.
The world would have us think God is restrictive, punishing, intolerable and many other detrimental things. If this is the only picture of God someone sees, it's no wonder people want nothing to do with Him. But if we are able to show them the true picture of God, they would see love, understanding, mercy, acceptance, forgiveness, grace, blessing and freedom. What totally opposing views!
I challenge you today to help someone get a clear vision of who our God is. Let's help them see the true Living God we serve and not the distorted one the world presents.
Be blessed and be a blessing today!
