Even Better

I keep finding myself in the place of asking, “Is this really worth it?”

Am I investing my days, my life and myself into something that’s going to make an impact and be worth it?

He says, “Even better.”

“For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere…” Psalm 84:10a

Is all this love and all this hurt that I’ll never be able to un-invest in going to be worth it?

He says, “Even better.”

“Because your steadfast love is better than my life, my lips will praise you.” Psalm 63:33

So sometimes I kick and I scream.
I whine even more than that.

And sometimes I celebrate and I sing.
And I beg Him to help me remember He’s even better.

He’s even better than all this glory and goodness swirling around me.
And He’s even bigger than all the other parts that don’t look like glory and goodness yet.

Sometimes I feel like a faith-weenie for the whining, weariness, and for not always remembering… not even believing… it’s worth it. And, more importantly, that He’s even better than that.

But He sees, He knows, and He planned for the days when our Better-Vision needed to be enhanced. When the Glory-Moments needed to be captured and celebrated.

He says it’s even better when we’re together.

“Two are better than one…
If either of them falls down,
One can help the other up…
Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Ecclesiastes 4:9,10,12

So today I want to celebrate my Better God and His everlasting goodness. To sing His praise and seal some priceless moments. I want to share silly videos of moments this month that reminded me it’s worth it because He’s worthy.

Because your prayers, love, and moment-celebrating gives me Better-Vision. You keep me from falling and make me not quickly broken.

Thank you for being part of His Glory-Moments in my life.

Don't judge my crazy voice! Playing our favorite game. That's me screaming, "RUN!" in SiSwati.
