Ruts

Ever been trapped in a rut and you can't get out. I think we all have, both metaphorically and in reality.

It just feels like you can't do anything right and every time you try and push through and finally get out you just fall down again? Sometimes even feeling like you are out. Then it all comes crashing down days, or even moments later?

Yeah me too. But I'm glad that God forgives us no matter what we do. The Bible says he forgets our sins, as far as the est is from the west. That's intense to think about. Some times I lose sight of this. I think I forget because it just doesn't seem normal for our God who is perfectly holy, that he can just clean us from our huge pile of sins that easily? Well the simple answer is that it wasn't easy for Him to clean our huge piles of sin.

He had to give His ONLY son, Jesus. He became man. Another mind blowing topic for some other time. He WILLINGLY suffered and died on the cross for ME, and YOU. I think that is pretty awesome and I am thankful for that. Because of this amazing act of love we have someone to help get us out of those ruts in our lives.

"1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."

Cool right? Now this doesn't mean that it won't be a challenge to get out. It is going to take hard work and determination. We might even feel some pain, either physical or emotional. But  when it comes right down to it the old saying rings true, no pain no gain. And really who can stand against us if God is for us, right?



The sacrifices you make for God will be the best thing you can do. Actually if you aren't making sacrifices in your Christian life I think you are missing out by not missing out. Weird but true.

Hope this pushes you to go on strong for God. I'm praying for everyone who reads this post.

Nolan Out!
