Rain. Rain. Rain. Rain. There has been nothing but rain at
home for the last two days and much of June. This morning, my
husband, Chris, and I headed for a long weekend away from
home. And, guess what? Rain. Rain. Rain. Rain. We drove in
rain all day. I can’t seem to drive far enough to avoid this wet
intruder that continues to disrupt my plans.
Sin. Sin. Sin. Sin. Like the rain, it just keeps coming into
my life. It is an intruder that disrupts my days and keeps me
awake at night. It causes me to do things that I don’t want to do,
and it prevents me from doing the things I want to do. When I
sin, I am ignoring Christ’s work of salvation. In other words, I
am not letting Christ be my Savior.
Cross. Cross. Cross. Cross. I must take my sins to the cross
daily. I need to meet my Lord in prayer and allow Him to
cleanse me of my sin through the work of the Holy Spirit. I
must allow Christ’s work on the cross to thwart my sinful nature.
I need to meet Jesus in His Word so He can teach me about
His sacrifice for my sin. I must ask Christ to empower me with
His Spirit so I can live a godly life and leave my life of sin
Saved. Saved. Saved. Saved. “But when the kindness and
love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of
righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy” (Titus
