During times of stress it is good to know God. The knowledge of my salvation and the knowledge of God are the most stabilizing forces in my life. Things are going awry at my work and so I feel the pressure of problems. I know that my situation is not unique. Each of you have your own stresses. I know you understand what I am talking about.
As I meditate upon my situation I realize it can be much worse. I was an alcoholic before I got saved. That means without God I would probably be sitting at a bar right now in Chicago. I am sure that I would have been divorced especially because before I met God I was mean and unsociable. (Imagine that) I am 90% different now than before I was saved. There is still about 10% of the old me but God and I are working on that.
The point is I am very thankful for who I am today. I am a result of God's goodness and favor.
