embracing_freedom_fully ".....I can only imagine....."
found the next book to start, but read John 17 today. I needed that. Haven’t been talking to God much lately. Like really talking and knowing He is there and seeing Him in my life and working in it.
It said He wants us to have joy and love. It said a whole lot more than that of course, but somehow those hit me. He wants me to have joy. Really wants me to. And it’s His desire for me to know His love and let it live in and fill my heart. Those aren’t bonuses for trusting Him as my Saviour. Those aren’t extras for being a good little Christian. No. This is, truly IS, what He wants for us as part of the core of what He wants to give us. It’s not extra. It’s vital. And He knew that and knows that.
not sure I’m making much sense or saying this right, but it’s time to rest again. and maybe find the God I claim to believe in, just maybe day by day find out the truth of His loving heart.
My God wants me to have joy and love in life. and that I do is important to Him. (I can’t fathom that, just shake my head amazed. and hope I can slowly see that truth more and more)
~ chosen for freedom…. maybe I can believe that after all slowly.
