Recently I had said that everyone gets sad or depressed occasionally, but after I had said it I realized that I hadn’t been sad in a while. Then this morning, for some reason, I became extremely sad. I thought about my father and how he used to call me “Macs” (pronounced “Max). It was so natural to hear him call me that—it didn’t seem like it was a different name at all. Then one day after he and my mother divorced (when I was about 6 or 7), he called me “Teresa.” He stopped calling me “Macs.” It was like when he divorced my mother, he divorced me too.
I thought about Numbers 23:19, “God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” (NLT). People will disappoint us, but God never does.
I have to work out today so I will give this memory to God then go for a run!
