Sure of what we hope for but do not always see

Every morning the Word is delivered to me by text.  It makes me smile EVERY single time. 

God loves me.

Today was Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

A lot of crazy things happen in my life.  Things that people wouldn't even probably believe (good thing I'm writing a book).

One of the craziest things that brings me hope?

Macaroni and cheese (the cheap box kind)

It reminds me of God's provision. It reminds me of a time when we were broke that we ate mac&cheese and corn for a whole week (mostly because i was too prideful to ask for help) because that's all the money I had after I paid bills.  When I eat Mac&cheese I think about that time, and how God was so faithful in providing me, and how incredibly blessed I am.  I know that sometimes people don't eat the things like that when they are delivered out of that kind of situation... but me, I love eating it because it reminds me, and I LOVE the way it tastes LOL

I think of people in my life who I surely don't deserve (and they think they are lucky to know me) and how God always fulfills His promises. He is faithful.  Even though often, I am not.

I don't always know what's ahead, but God loves me.  I am assured of love that I don't deserve, because I believe in Him and all His promises.

and... I really am the lucky one.

"It is of Jehovah's loving-kindness we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not; they are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness". If that's from the Lamentations ...!
