Petty

I am currently reading (and re-reading) Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl by Lysa TerKeurst.  What an awesome book.  A few thoughts from Lysa to share with you –

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us (1 John 4:16)” –

This verse reminds me that while people can prove unreliable, God never is.  It is possible to know Him in deeper ways than human relationships and learn to rely on His love to stabilize the places we fall short.

Why, then, do I so often let people distract and discourage me?  Why do I often look to others for their approval, all the while dismissing the approval my Heavenly Father seeks to give me when I walk in His ways?  Forgetting about His unfailing love, forgetting about His sacrifice for me and His desire to be in relationship with me?  Ah, such petty things this human mind allows to distract her from the Truth.
