Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Scripture
Psalm 14 >blueletterbible.org

Observation

verse 3 all have become corrupt This is that same idea as in Romans 3:23 For all have sinned; all fall short of God's glorious standard.. And in fact Romans 3:10-12 actally quotes Psalm 14.

It is amazing and glorious when you really stop to think how wonderful this is. We cannot get close to God because of our sin, He is holy and we are sin and our sin seperates us from God. But God loves us so much and wants to be with us so He gave us Jesus!

Romans 3:24 Yet now God in his gracious kindness declares us not guilty. He has done this through Christ Jesus, who has freed us by taking away our sins. We can now have a relationship with God through Jesus.

Application

I think we sometimes can get in a rut of the same kind of worship. So when I am reminded of a concept like this one - so simple yet so powerful, all I want to do is find simple but powerful ways to worship God. We need to strive to increase our worship to God throughout each day. Not only can we sing praise and worship songs every day but we can give praise and thanks for all things big and small.

Prayer

Lord thank you for reminding me of such an important concept today. Your holiness is so great that we cannot ever hope to be near to you except that we can - through Jesus. Your plan for our salvation is so amazing and gracious. Thank you for all you do and all the blessings you have given us. Thank you for the beautiful music we can sing to praise you. Thank you for the piano I found. Thank you for my beautiful children who bring joy to my day and who bring me flowers(weeds) that they think are beautiful.
