When you first say yes to faith, yes to Jesus and believing in him. (He hits the “replay” and “share” button on that one.)
He sets something on your heart and you choose to listen instead of chalking it up to heartburn.
You fight a temptation in his strength—and win.
You sing loud and off-key (or on key if you’re gifted in such things), smile and worship.
Your heart hurts and you run to him instead of chocolate, alcohol or any other quick fix.
You first open your eyes to face the day and your hair is wild and your breath stinks and your face is all puffy… and you haven’t done a single thing but wake up.
He loves you then.
He loves you now.
He loves you always.
Such a wonderful comfort to be His daughter and to know even when I am sleeping and doing NOTHING … HIS MIND IS ON ME!
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand —
when I awake, I am still with you.
Staggering…. Is it possible to smile with a tear in your eye?
I love this post! It really hits home for me!
Beautiful, beautiful reminder, Elsa. I need to hear it EVERY day- still!
Thanks Elsa – I’m sharing this with a wonderful woman of prayer this morning – hope you don’t mind!
