Loved this quote my daughter shared with me:
 "If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live?"
Happy New Year!

Spiritual Growth

I want to share how Matthew 11:28-30 came to me this morning.

"Come to me and learn from me about me and my ways for I am a gentle teacher and there is no fear in getting close to Me. You will find My law is easy. When it is in your heart it fits you perfectly and what I want you to do is delightful."

The True View of Suffering

As promised--here is the conversation following that last post.

"This is amazing in its impact! I want that unutterable trust in You, trust which never dreams that You will not stand by me. But I don't want to suffer to get it. And yet I am convinced that is how it comes.

And this was God's answer, "Tried faith is your personal possession. It's yours because you have tested it. There really is no suffering in it, because it wants to prove the reality--so there is confident waiting. Oh yes, your head will give you conflict, but with Us, the battle is not debilitating but liberating. You don't come through it missing limbs, but gaining heart, and that brings confidence in Us--and reality."

Oswald Chambers says some amazing things! Here is one of them!

"On the mount it is easy to say, 'Oh yes, I believe God can do it;' but you have to come down into the demon-possessed valley and meet with facts that laugh ironically at the whole of your mount-of-transfiguration belief. Every time my programme of belief is clear to my own mind, I come across something that contradicts it. Let me say I believe God will supply all my need, and then let me run dry, with no outlook, and see whether I will go through the trial of faith, or whether I will sink back to something lower.
"Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into a personal possession only through conflict...Faith is unutterable trust in God, trust which never dreams that He will not stand by us."

(Next month I will tell you our conversation afterwards! It was just as good! Better for me.)

We can wait for things to change, we can talk about them changing, or we can change them. 

You are a child of God. 

Your bravery in the Hand of grace is wildly beautiful. 

Let Him change something today by stepping forward into the space He's been waiting to give you. It's already yours. The battle is already won. 

Be brave, be free.

Love with the Love with which You are Loved

Wow! Can't believe it's been two months since I wrote that! I'm half done with the  book of Job! Talk about a challenge! There is a great quote in one of the commentators I am reading.

Describing Job, Delitzsch says, "He is blessed who knows himself to be in favor with God, and in return loves his fellow-men, especially the poor and needy, with the love with which he himself is loved of God."

Something about that struck me: loving with the love we are loved with by God. Recognizing it and using it to love others. Paying it forward.

But you can't really love until you know you are loved. Until is seeps into you and you are so full it oozes out. To be loved and love like that! Yes!
