Good morning out there in Blog Land ~ I hope you are all faring well today.
You know, sometimes I feel God wooing me. Like ethereal wispy whispers wrapping themselves around my heart. I felt it yesterday as I was pulling back into my apartment complex after visiting with one of my best friends. I can’t explain it other than when it happens I can feel Him just filling me up – pressing Love into my heart. Into the damaged & torn places. The places that have retreated into hiding because something has battered away at it or threatens to. It is truly the kind that only He can give. I have never experienced another love that expresses itself that same way. Once you drink of it, you don’t want to ever lose it again. At least I don’t anyway. I would be hopeless & totally lost without it.
It is proof to me that even though I am not perfect, don’t attend church anymore in the conventional sense, I don’t always make the best decisions when I am “dealing” with life – that He is still right here. Right here. He has never once left me. Never once forsaken me.
Who else can I say that about?
I mean I have the best friends a girl could want. But they are human and can’t be everything for me all the time.
But. God. Can.
Even when I am being too selfish to realize it. He is always there waiting to fill the voids. To light the darkness. He never forces Himself on me. He is a true gentleman & the best Daddy in the history of this wide world. He just is.
The Great I Am.
Thank you Jesus. For loving me in spite of me.
For reminding me in the sweetest ways that I am cherished & thought of & appreciated for who I am. Accepted in my most naked state before You. In all of my mess & folly.
If I never share the true reciprocated love of man I have You Lord.
I. Have. You.
Much love y’all ~ big beautiful set-apart-Love.
