All about my love for the Lord

In Him…Always…Again and Again and Again…

“For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory in in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in Heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.” Philippians 3:18-21

Once in awhile I need a God-nudge. I am human and fall asleep to His goodness and peace and mercy. I forget that He is in control and that I am to follow His plan for my life.

I have been calling on the Lord to set in my heart a desire deeper than ever to be immersed in His goodness. I have asked Him to capture my thoughts and my words. I have asked Him to surround me in His goodness such that I seek Him first…always.

We, as humans, flesh and blood,

Our Lord Jesus Christ

turn from His face. We have free-will to walk away from Him. Oftentimes, at least for me, it is a slow process. I creep slowly away from His hand…so far that I can barely reach His fingertips. Then…as though with lightening and thunder He pulls me back in.  He is an awesome God.

My faith, of late, like the past six months, has been floundering. Don’t get me wrong, in my floundering, I am still acutely aware of His sovereignty; His saving Grace; His omnipresence. But, I have become complacent and self-serving. But, the lightening struck and the thunder rolled and now I am exactly where I need to be…in the lap of my Heavenly Father.

I write to encourage. I write to share my heart. I write to let you know that we are not alone…we are imperfect, flesh-filled humans who desire a filling of our God-sized vacuum. We desire to be in the absolute holy and righteous presence of our perfect, steadfast, loving, kind, strong-tower God.

Do not fret, beloved. He will make straight your paths and draw you into His heart. He longs for you…let Him capture your thoughts and words and heart.

In Christ Jesus, Amen.
