Resident Reflection

Dear Dad,
Today I chose to believe in You. Not just believe about you. Tonight I chose despite my lack of full understanding of your love for me, that I will believe you when you say you love me, even despite my feelings, for feelings are not truth. Tonight I chose to believe to put my full trust in you not because I was told by others, not because I can see what you’re planning for me, but because you sent your Son down to die for me, a sinner. That realization I cannot deny. Tonight I put my faith in You because I know even though I cannot see what you’re doing in me, your Word says you’re holding my hand. Tonight I put my hope in you because I know I cannot win this battle on my own. You will take this broken person and one day make her whole. I believe I am a dirty sinner covered by your grace.
