Sure of what we hope for but do not always see
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.
