Startled this morning by the craziness of my phone twitching and beeping, I began to wonder if a lunatic had crawled inside of it and taken possession. Before I knew it, applications were buzzing and popping up in a mainstream of havoc. One application in particular seemed to be the instigator of my demise. Glasses in hand I put them on in haste to see who this culprit was that had started my morning in a frenzy.
I realized this interogator was the “Gateway Bible Application.” I laughed and thought, “This is one way to get my attention first thing in the morning, Lord!”
In its redundant act of opening, a verse popped up in front of me. VERSE OF THE DAY: “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil. 1:6
My heart stung for a moment. Just the night before my mind had mulled through the muck and thought God certainly must be disappointed in me. It seemed, that everything in my day had taken precedence before God, even enjoying a bit of Pinterest in place of my quiet time. I lay my confession at His feet and with the joy that only God can give, I knew I was forgiven for my absence.
So I press on today, knowing that God is not finished with me yet. I am no where near perfection, but if you know me, you already know that, right?
But it does not make me “unusable” either. Today I start fresh putting Him rightfully back on the throne of my heart and my day, confident that His promises are true, that God will continue to perfect me until He returns.
