I am Reminded. . .
The passing away of singer Whitney Houston has been in the news very heavily over the course of the past week. I am reminded of her beautiful voice and her musical talent, which were truly gifts from God. . .
What makes my heart heavy is not only her death, but the way she struggled, both privately and publicly. . .knowing that God wanted better for her, as He does for all of us. . .I pray for her sweet daughter and dear mother, and the family she leaves behind.
Watching her funeral today, I am reminded of my life, my gifts, my talents, my struggles, my pain. I am reminded that I serve an all-knowing, ever-loving God who wants what is best for me and stands ready, with open arms, to forgive me every. time. I. fail.
I am so thankful to God, for His blessings toward us are great.
I am also reminded of this very important verse in the Holy Word of God:
