An Apple a Day:Hebrews 4:14-16 (NIV)

~14) Therefore, since we have a great high
priest who has gone through the heavens,
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly
to the faith we profess. 15) For we do not
have a high priest who is unable to
sympathize with our weaknesses, but we
have one who has been tempted in every
way, just as we are--yet was without sin.
16) Let us then approach the throne of
grace with confidence, so that we may
receive mercy and find grace to help us in
our time of need.

My desire is to be aware continuously of
God's presence with me.  These verses
tell me that I do not need to let feelings
of failure weigh me down. Jesus under
stands how we are tempted, because he
was tempted in every way, just as we are
as stated in verse 15 above.  This world
we live in has been rigged to distract us.
God recognizes and rejoices each time
we initiate communication with him, and
become aware of his presence, we
have achieved a victory.  Every time
we lose sight of Jesus' presence with us,
just bring your focus back to him and
move on.  Rejoice in your tiny triumphs...
God does!
