My First Love
And then I needed God again.
For me, when worldly things distract me, I sometimes forget my first love: God. I forget that He is always here anytime I need help or comfort with anything. During and after my surgery, I had quite a few complications that put me right back into the hospital a few days later. At one point, I seriously thought I was dying as they carried me out from a ct scan and onto a mobile bed from convulsing and having irregular heartbeats. I had to stay overnight to check for numerous things -- from surgical infections and for heart problems as well as blood clots and pulmonary embolisms. Good God I was a hot mess! And in the midst of all the chaos and fear, I saw God once again.
If God brings you to it, He'll get you through it. And He did.
And of course I did.
But that's not the point.
The mind can be convinced, but the heart must be won. ~Simon Sinek
Sometimes letting go can be the most liberating thing you can do. For this reason, I'm closer to God than ever before.
I will never forget my first love again.
“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” (Revelation 2:4).
