[random notes: God’s character]
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.
Hebrews 10:23, NLT
It has been one long Monday and it’s not even over yet.
Today I have joined the ranks of early-morning people and got up at 5:40AM (Note: usually I get up at 7:30AM). The sunrise was worth it – a bright red sun hung low just above the horizon and the still-sleeping city was painted gold.
The taxi came quickly and in less than 30 minutes I was at the office building. The brief walk from the car to the office was rather pleasant – it was 6:45AM, no people outside, the sun was smiling brightly right into my eyes, and the birds were rejoicing with the spring. AH.
The lobby was also unusually quiet, just the night shift guards hanging around. The Microsoft guy was waiting for me already at the door. A coffee later, my admin manager arrived.
However, the IT problems were not to be solved today. The reason we agreed to meet that early on Monday morning was because the guy from another company was away for the weekend and the Microsoft guy had a Microsoft Visual Studio presentation today, so the only time we could meet was 7AM on Monday morning.
The three of us were in the office when the other guy called and said “I cannot come.”
I haven’t talked to him, but it seemed like he just didn’t want to come. UGH. So the Microsoft guy went to meet their project launch speaker, my admin manager left on her business, and I stayed behind at the office.
The day has been hectic because of that. Not only it was just a long day, but also the IT problems remained and I wandered around the office for quite some time because I could not do anything. It does drive all of us to think of alternatives, but this is getting old.
I titled this post “God’s Character” and by now y’all are probably wondering why. It felt disappointing to have our hopes of flawlessly working CRM trampled on. We did everything from our side and the other guy let us down.
One of the things that I love about our God – He never lets us down and keeps His promises.
When He says He will be with us, He comes.
When He says that He will keep His promise – He does.
When He says that His love is strong – He proves it on that roman cross 2,000 years ago.
What is one of the traits of His character that gives YOU joy? Got a story to share?
