A God of Absolutes

I am an imperfect mom with faults and trials just like the next person.
I am not one to tell people how to parent, how to live, how to eat or whatever.
Its nice to know we don't have to have all of the perfect answers, or be that strong person all of the time.

Its hard between the kids, the husband, the bills, the house, the hobbies to keep my life consistently going at a smooth pace. Bumps in the road and trials are bound to appear. In talking to a friend recently, I said we all have our Ritz Carlton and Roach Motel kind of days.

 {guess you had to be there ;)}

You may find yourself in a valley or in a mountain, but the reassuring thing is our absolute God comes with us.

Absolute words like
all
everybody
 each
always
no one
nobody
 never
 none
every
everyone
are like the plague to some...contract lawyers love them. I love absolutes too.

Would you jump from a plane if you knew absolutely your parachute would work?
Would you buy that house if you knew absolutely the market could only improve?

Anytime someone uses one of those words in a statement {if they are telling the truth}, whatever they say is firm, undeniable..no wiggle room.

Everyone has a bellybutton? Yep.

Well, I am thankful God is a God of absolutes.

God says He will never leave us or forsake us. (Deut. 31:6)
How comforting is this promise and all of the others He has given to us in the Bible.

Do you feel like you need something absolute today?

He tells us to trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straightโ€ (Proverbs 3:5)

I know its hard to submit to other people in our lives, but if there is anyone to submit to, its reassuring to know its the One who created us, loves us, never leaves us or fails us.

I'd say think of a mountain you can lean on anytime, but God can move the mountains.....
