I have this nasty habit… I’m a smoker.
I don’t smoke in my house, that’s gross.
So when I want to do my nasty lil habit I step out my back door.
Today I noticed something that I’ve probably seen before but never gave much thought.
If I look to my left, just over the top of the fence, there’s a church way up on a hill; on top of this church is a steeple with a cross.
Even at night, that steeple and cross are lit up.
Smoking has been a struggle for me. I quite, I pick it back up; I quit, I pick it back up.
Today, that cross spoke to me. Somehow, it reminded me no matter where I am or what I’m doing I’m always at the foot of the cross.
I’m a Christian, but far from perfect.
Thankfully, I can take all of my imperfections to the foot of the cross and lay them at Jesus’ feet knowing he loves me unconditionally.
What a great reminder that steeple and cross are during a time when I’m doing something I struggle with on a regular basis.
There are things in life we struggle with. Whether that’s something we do over and over again or whether it’s something that’s a one time thing.
Thankfully, we aren’t expected to be perfect or even close to it.
Thankfully, we are loved just as we are, just where we are!
We are loved…unconditionally. We don’t have to be good enough or do enough, we simply have to accept it!
That’s my one minute mind
