You got Older!

Just when I think I have figured out how not to look old, a child tells it like it is. I have the great pleasure of seeing children grow up and love re-connecting with them as they go from grade to grade.  Last week I stopped in to an after school program that many of my former students attend. Walking into the room I was greeted with warm hugs, delightful screams of "Mrs. Cobb" and millions of stories! I felt so loved! One of the students in the class turned and asked, "Do you remember me"? I always remember them, just not always their names! What he said next will forever be etched in my memory!
With his head tilted, one eye closed and soft voice he stated, "Mrs. Cobb you got older"! 

Wow~ Not exactly the response I expected! Honest yes, but not what I wanted to hear! 

Have you been here? 

The truth can be such a difficult thing for us to hear about ourselves. Sometimes I look into the mirror and think wow you look pretty good, then I see a picture of myself and the truth prevails!

God's word is like that.  When we examine ourselves in light of what the bible says we realize that we are not "looking good".  On the contrary we realize that we are lost without the saving grace of Jesus. 

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12

Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no other. Isaiah 45:22

The truth is hard, but following The way, The Truth and the Life is the best adventure I know!
