When I’m afraid,
He emboldens me.

When I’m disgraced in my guilt,
He pardons me.

When I’m wounded,
He restores me.

When I’m humbled,
He encourages me.

When I struggle against the wind,
He calms me.

When I come to the end of myself,
He loves me.

God is not a God of rules, waiting for us to mess up so He can punish, but instead a God of mercy and grace, waiting for every opportunity to lift us up. He comforts and consoles, picking us up in strong arms, telling us it will be okay.

That is God to me.

About cewaterman

I love God, my family, and writing--in that order. I live in Colorado, and I like to play golf, hike (not 14'ers, that's my husband's passion), and generally enjoy the beautiful scenery that God created. I have two beautiful daughters, three wonderful grandchildren, and a husband who has loved me well for over thirty years. I am truly blessed. I love encouraging people on the journey to becoming what God created them to be, including myself!
