Lord. A power higher than any other. The Ultimate, Eternal, Never-ending Almighty. This week, I and many others are grieving the death of a member of our church family. As we go through this time, I am comforted by the fact that Jesus is Lord over both life and death.
Ann Spangler writes, “Think over the last week. How well did you do at letting Jesus be Lord of all your days? Were you primarily looking out for his interests or for your own?”
I admit that I’m often weak in this area. But I pray for the faith to know that where I am weak, He is strong. I’m choosing to trust God to give me the grace to relinquish my own will, my own agenda, my own need for control all to Him. Because He is Lord, the Almighty. And not only that, my Lord, my powerful Creator, loves little old me. I pray this fact embeds itself in your heart this day, and forevermore.
