who do I rely On?

God is always the rescuer and I am the one in need of rescuing. It is wonderful to know that God will be the one to seek me when things are rough, especially if I sin against Him. The times when I distance myself from Him out of shame is terrible because He is the one that is always pursuing, always chasing after me if I have even sinned against Him. I know no one else like that at all. To hit someone in the face and have them chase after you to get to know you and not strike back is something you do not see amongst people.

As I continue to experience great transitions in my life I need to be aware that career, education, even friend transitions all mean nothing if I don't continue transitioning towards Jesus. He cannot be placed to the side while I figure out what I'm doing and why I'm doing it.

Psalm 5 :1-7 (NASB) says:

Give ear to my words, O LORD,
Consider my groaning.
Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God,
For to You I pray.
In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.
For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;
No evil dwells with You.
The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes;
You hate all who do iniquity.
You destroy those who speak falsehood;
The LORD abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit.
But as for me, by Your abundant lovingkindness I will enter Your house,
At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You.
O LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes;
Make Your way straight before me.


As I continue transitions and live for Him, I should remember that as for me, Jesus has a love and mercy that will allow me to enter at any time, because of Him, into His Kingdom. My sins, past as they are, cannot scare me and prevent me from engaging a God who allows entrance into His house. And my transitions in life should bring me excitement, not worry, because worry means that I am lost within God's house.
