Wrapped in a Cocoon of Blessing

Today, I feel like I am wrapped in a safe cocoon of His blessings.

Today, the most amazing thing:   I met with Dr. Coleman today and I needed a History of English class because I bombed the last class.  This was a real work on my pride because of my attitude in his class while I was there.  I had no good work ethic and my attitude was really poor.  The grace this man showed me was incredible!  He allowed me to take an independent study with Him this semester.  I praise and I thank God!  He did not have to do it, but he helped me and I have him to thank for his great GREAT mercy on me!

Now I understand that NONE OF THIS and none of this stuff happened because of me, but my degree happened because somebody really really had mercy on me.  I am not all that, in fact, I had failed, but where I failed, God stepped in and he saved me!  He picked me up from the pit!  He picked me up and set me up on a higher ground.  Now I know I am not here on my own, but by the graceful hand of God I am here.  Let me always remember this.  Someone had mercy on me.  Let me always remember that God's grace is the ONLY reason why I have the things that I have.  God help me to walk humbly before you every day.  Help me not to take any short cuts to try and get ahead in life, but be patient and wait for God.  Also, I may know that I am not always right, always having it together.  Lord, thank you for helping me with my foolish, self-defeating pride.  God how else can I turn over my pride to you?  Here I am God.  I am yours.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
