Ok I am going to say something that will probably make you go, Huh? Bare with me I will explain, I promise :)
My relationship with my cat is a lot like my relationship with God. No! Really Check this out!
My cat’s name is Bella (total twilight fan) and she is definitely a mommy’s girl. Here is the thing though, she loves me unconditionally. She is constantly coming to me to love on me and for me to love on her. Even when I have scolded her or pushed her away because I am in a mood and want my space, she keeps coming back to me. She doesn’t give up and she wont go away SHE IS ALWAYS THERE! Ultimately all she wants is Mommy’s love.
That is all God wants from me to. He asks me to believe in him and love him unconditionally and in return he promises me salvation and an everlasting life in him. How awesome is that! Pretty cool right? Hold on tight cause I am gonna take it a step further.
GOD IS ALWAYS THERE!! Even when I have tried to do things my way and not his he remained there, he still loved me. I have stepped away multiple times and I keep finding myself coming back to him and just like my Bella he remains loyal to me.
I will praise you, O Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. Surley God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord is my strength and my song, he has become my salvation.
Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things, let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.
So my blessing for today? I am thankful for a persistent pushy cat.
I want to give thanks to you tonight for my big girl. Your ways are truly mysterious and I would have never dreamed that you could bring me closer to you through a big smelly yellow cat. Lord you have reminded me that your love is persistent and pushy and always there. I ask that you forgive me Lord for the times that I have walked away from your glory and praise your name because in this world your love is my only permanent offer and I have failed to remember that. Lord help me to continue to see your love in the small things and give me the wisdom to share those moments with others. To you I owe all my praise.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen
So my advice to all of you who are lost and need to find God, get yourself a big yellow cat and reach out and touch the hands of Jesus, He is waiting for you!
