Ahhhh…A Breath of Fresh Air…Him

Ever find that you get so caught up in yourself and your weakness and your thoughts and your circumstances that you forget to just…well…praise God? You get to the end of the moment, the minute, the hour – and realize that time has passed and all you have done, frankly, is think and move?

My dear friends and readers far and wide – in case you need a reminder – God is good.

His righteousness is complete and finished. You don’t have to earn it or fake it. You can rest in all that He is. Your heart can be still in Him.

In His Spirit is Life and Peace. Take your mind of your flesh – after all, if it is SUPPOSED to be dead it does no good to sit there glaring at it. Just turn your eyes to Christ. Turn your back on your failures, dissatisfaction with your spiritual life, frustration with self-efforts at righteousness – Abandon it all and find…HIM.

Look at Christ, simply rest in Him, believe what He says and…There…You will find…EVERYTHING.

I am amazed at the goodness and mercy of God. How He holds us, keeps us, draws us. And in His love, never grows tired of us. And when He looks at me, He sees HIS SON.

Some thoughts just blow me away. BLOW ME AWAY. And those that do that are of Him – of all that He is, has done, and always will be.

Some thoughts are too big to process. TOO BIG. And those that are are of Him – of His never-ending mercy, of His love for me, of His patience.

Some thoughts cannot be captured or expressed adequately. THEY JUST CAN’T. But they are true.

“We can use the words we know to tell You what an Awesome God You are. But words are not enough to tell You of our love. So, listen to our hearts.”

Friend, there is more than just existence in Christ. There is LIFE. ABUNDANT LIFE. And it is YOURS – glorious, full, free, all-consuming, all-satisfying LIFE.

This is CHRIST.
