I wondered what if it was those words, I have spoken before, and really didn’t believe them.
In fact, as I was speaking, teaching really, but inwardly thinking –
“Why am I saying this?
It doesn’t make sense. But, I’ve been taught this all my life.
It must be true.”
Years went by.
I still hear those words. In my mind.
But, now I know they are not true.
No matter how they are served on a pretty platter with the right music playing in the background.
Terms that God did not mean to be His mantra.
He is a God of Love.
He doesn’t brow beat us to coming to Him.
He gently draws us in.
He doesn’t force His way in.
He simply is there.
He is patient.
Not really using scare tactics.
He knows we are not perfect yet He has grace.
Fire fighting grace when the volcano is erupting from deep within and nothing else can hold it back.
Past disappointments. He can handle those too. In fact, really before they happened, He knew.
I really just want to be in His presence. It has nothing to do with the alternative.
It is about Him.
And Him alone.
I desire to be His child, forever.
And forever I will be.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
