God is so awesome.

I just wanna say how excited I am that this year is gonna be fantastic! God will do great things and the year ahead will be a blast!

I've been deep in thought lately. Thoughts about God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Thoughts about myself and where my place is in His plan. Doubts and worries and lots of other things weigh on my mind.

But time and time again, God keeps bringing me back. He keeps opening my eyes to more and more of His love. And yet, I can't help but feel like I'm not good enough. The bridge of a song from one particular Hillsong album speaks my mind--

How can it be
You were the One on the cross
Lifted for all my shame?
How can it be
The scars in Your hands are for me?
You are the King of all

Just singing this, I don't understand. I can't understand how it could be that the One who created the entire universe, the One who breathed the world into existence, would come down to the lowly earth and die for us? For me?

And yet, that's what he did. He gave up everything to die for us. He left the highest heavens and came down and lived a human life, just so he could finally die on the cross, with nails piercing his hands and feet. All the pain, all the sacrifice, all the blood that was shed... Just for me.

That shows us just how much we mean to Him. We must NEVER ever feel that we are any less precious than God feels we are!

I've just been worshipping God and enjoying His presence. Whenever I do, my heart soars. My soul magnifies the Lord, and my heart takes joy in my Saviour. He lifts the lowly, and he's done great things for me. I just wanna sing forever and raise His name to the heavens! Through each trial I will praise Him because he is mighty and I know that he will never fail me.

Jesus' blood never fails me
Jesus' blood never fails me
Jesus' blood never fails me
Jesus' blood, Jesus' blood

Everytime I feel disappointment, He comforts me. Everytime I feel like I have failed Him, He lifts my face and tells me that He still loves me and wants to abide in me when I worship Him.

Why am I discouraged? Why so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again, my Saviour and my God!
- Psalm 42:11

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit.
- Psalm 34:18


God is my DJ
