GOD KNOWS ME MORE THAN I CAN EVER KNOW MYSELF–AND STILL LOVES ME!

(Edited to Fit Me, From “There’s Hope for Today”, March 18, 2017)

Myers-Briggs says I am an ESFJ. By temperament I am a sanguine/choleric. By culture I am Southwest. My politics are conservative. My theology is Spirit-filled Evangelical, and my hobby is chasing storms. Do you think you know me now?

Here’s more. I hate golf, love chocolate, eat too much red meat and potatoes, admire musicians, read a lot, drive, eat, and talk too fast, and spend too much time online. If I were Gen-X, I’m certain I would be diagnosed with some hyper-disorder and drugged into a manageable state.

Have you got a read on me yet? A few more bits and pieces: My greatest loves, apart from God, are my wife, my kids (including their wives and our “adopted” kids), and my grandkids.  I’m running low on faith in politicians, weathermen, TV evangelists, tax cuts, stock markets, and “as-seen-on-TV” products. I rejoice in fatherhood, weep at the thought of our empty nest, laugh at least twice a day, sing with a voice only God could love, dream big dreams, believe in miracles, hold out with optimism, and always take three where a dosage of two is recommended.

If you were to add to this list my complete self-knowledge, my wife’s insight, and my sons’ input, you would have but a shadow of a fingerprint compared to God’s complete knowledge of me. And when all is said, and all is known, He loves me still. Amazing grace!
