2018 FEB 28 – Matthew 1:21
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” (ESV)
Today, I had two very different situations. One, I felt very uncomfortable in a bad situation at a bad place. The other, I actually helped a hungry couple by buying them food. I don’t say it to get recognition, rather glorify how God works in me.
I have done enough in my life that I am grateful for the Grace granted me by Jesus and His sacrifice. It only makes me want to do good things. So that in the end, maybe my good works will massively outweigh my bad deeds.
I want to take another day and another verse from Old Before Your Time by Ray LaMontagne And The Pariah Dogs. This part is focuses on a conversion.
It took so long to see
That truth was all around me
Now the wren has gone to roost and the sky is turnin’ gold
Like the sky my soul is also turnin’
Turnin’ from the past, at last and all I’ve left behind
Could it be that I am finally learnin’?
Learnin’ that I’m deserving of love and the peaceful heart
I won’t tear myself apart no more for tryin’
I’m tired of lyin’ to myself, tryin’ to buy what can’t be bought
It’s not livin’ that you’re doin’ if it feels like dyin
I believe a conversion started with me a few months ago and I was not sure on how to proceed. I have made some mistakes and I cry more these days from the pain that I have caused. It felt good to do something for someone and not ever exchange names. It feels good to know that I am saved by Grace because Jesus was born and died for my sins. I only wish to glorify and work in support of His Name.
