A Perfect Fit

Have you ever tried on a pair of shoes before that you really liked but they just. didn't. quite. fit?

You try to make them work but in the end the blisters and the pain just aren't worth the hassle of trying to fit into those shoes. You finally realize you'd be better off finding something that you did fit into...Ones that you didn't have to force on and that really were made for you.

Well, sometimes I feel like I'm trying to figure out where I fit in in this world. When I'm struggling to make it work but finally realize the blisters and pain aren't worth it, I remember I am always accepted in Christ.

I always fit in with Him.

I don't need to cry that the "shoes" I thought I wanted don't fit. I can rejoice that I've found the perfect fit because my identity is not found by fitting in with those around me, but fitting in with Christ.

May I encourage you today that no matter who you are or what you have done, you will always fit in with Christ. He won't leave you as you are though. He'll redeem you and fill you with peace that you can't find anywhere else in this world.

So rather than cry about the shoes that don't fit, I'm going to get on my knees and thank the One in whom I will always fit in with.

All I Have is Christ

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father, use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You
