He Must Come to You

For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead.- Psalm 86:13

As I sat down to write a few minutes ago, I put on the Elevation Worship CD, We Are Alive, to try to lift something inspirational out of me.  Track 2 came on, Progress A.  It’s 30 seconds of Pastor Steven preaching, not even a song, which caught my attention.  I’ve learned in the short time I’ve been attending Elevation Church that when Pastor Steven speaks, I listen.

This is what struck me; he says, “You cannot get to God, He must come to you. There is no other way.”

And then I opened up my Bible, which I’m very new at, and it opened to Psalm 86.  Verse 13 hit me in the gut.

Not only did God come to ME, but when he came to me he delivered me from the depths of my self-made hell.  I honestly don’t know how other people come to find God without experiencing a life altering moment.  Maybe it’s just me, but He had to literally save me from death in order for me to see him, I mean really see Him.  I grew up always knowing that there was a God, I just didn’t KNOW him.  Like Pastor Steven said, there is no other way for me to know God until He comes to me.  I am so grateful that He did.

Are you still searching for Him?  Has He found you yet?

Everyone’s Daddy

February 19th 2010 was a sad day.  Daddy, Cesar Millan’s right-hand pit bull, passed away.  Cesar and Daddy are huge role models for me and they have impacted my life with my pooches tremendously…just by watching them on TV!  At first when I heard the news, I started to feel really upset, but then I realized that Daddy had 16 wonderful years on this earth and that his life should be celebrated rather than mourned.  I also couldn’t help feeling compassion for Junior, his protege, who will be experiencing a grieving period just as his family will.  

Rest in Peace, Daddy.  You are an amazing creature.  Thank you for everything.
