"I Know Him!!"

This picture is from one of my favorite scene's in the movie "Elf". Santa is about to arrive and Buddy "knows him"!

Its great isn't itItalic? To know someone. Understanding what makes a person laugh or cry is really an extraordinary power.

I was talking to a friend about how awful her life has been as of late and whether or not God is really for us even when it doesn't seem like it. I do not begin to understand how/why God does (or doesn't) do things; but I know him. I know His character. I know circumstances do not change who He is and does not stop His love for us. Yes, circumstances make us doubt, wonder, scream and walk away limping. But I know Him! He has given us everything we need for life and godliness through Himself. And He found me so I can know Him.

Have you ever read, "Knowing God"? You might like it. Our Bible Study is going through it right now and I am enjoying it. This is pretty impressive seeing as I am not a fan of Christian "life" books or whatever you call them. Too many of them seem flimsy and too drawn-out. But this one is a good read, so far.

oh my! how timely- the times in my life when I am at my lowest are the times I doubt that even God can love me. During a sermon some years ago our Pastor used the word 'nevertheless'- I quilted it and it hangs on my wall. I called it God's Resolution as in 'nevertheless He loves me still'
Thanks Debbie for sharing your daughter's wisdom with me.
