open my heart

"Never will I leave you, Never will I give up on you." -- Joshua 1:5

I was sitting down yesterday. I said, "God, you must be so annoyed at me. You give me these opportunities, and I'm too afraid to step forward and trust You."

And then it was like, wait a second. That's how the world reacts when we don't do things right. When we make the wrong decision, when we're afraid.
They taunt us, and tell us we're pathetic. They judge us, and sometimes -- they just full-on give up on us.

God doesn't. No, he doesn't. He is patient. God never judges us. Quoting Max Lucado in his book, "Just like Jesus" --

 "God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus."

Jesus will never give up on me. I have to open my heart, and allow him to direct me; I have to trust him. Fully.


  1. I just found your blog and I love it! That is deffinantly one of my favorite verses. I was thinking about that today. Sometimes I feel like I've let God down but it's important to remember that in our relationship with God, he's holding us up, and he will never let us down. :)

  2. Wonderful Post, Emii! I love how you always have such encouraging posts. :)

    Devin -- I know. It sits on my wall, and is an amazing reminder that, no matter what... He's with me, and He'll never give up on me. Even when I mess up seriously bad.
