gratituesday -- my Judge

i've been doing a lot of reading and studying of His Word.  something that has been pressing me lately is the fact that God is never changing.  i love that. 
something that i'm thankful for this week for gratituesday is my unchanging "God is a righteous judge..." (Ps 7:11).  as He speaks to me and convicts me of sin, i have no one to answer to but Him in my conviction.  "Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge." (Ps. 51:4) 
one of the labels in my posts is convictions i hold.  i want to point out that i am not putting my convictions out here for you all to uphold and i will try NEVER to judge others on convictions i hold.  they are MY convictions the Lord has put on MY heart.  i share them to 1.) be accountable, 2.) show His work in my life, and 3.) be real in who i am.  i don't like to be fake.  i am sinful.  but i have a gracious and loving Father who i've given my life to.  that Father can teach me and judge me.  people can too, but those judgements won't matter to me. 
"The Lord reigns forever;  he has established his throne for judgement. He will judge the world in righteousness;  he will govern the peoples with justice."  (Ps 9:7-8)
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

I can see that the Lord is working in your life and it will help me pray for you more specifically when I remember you and your family in my daily prayers. I love you. (M)
