You ~ Beautiful And Lovely Even Still

 

Ahh, that unconditional love that God gives is a blessing isn’t it? Aren’t you so thankful for it on the days when you feel you’ve missed the mark and it really doesn’t matter what others think anyway, it’s really about how God sees you! Even though you feel tossed, wrecked and blown about in the winds of chaotic guilt storms ~ God sees you beautiful and lovely. Yes He does! He overlooks the mark we missed and covers us with ~ a miraculous and precious mercy so sweetened with amazing grace and forgiveness yet again! Why are we so reluctant to accept it? It’s always there to meet us and cover us even in our most down of down moments. It’s always there for the worries that took over, the doubts that crept in, the fear filled moments where faith didn’t surface ~ no ~ not even for a second, and where temptation was stronger than our self -discipline.

There are so many subtleties the enemy uses to set us up, catching us in the trap of guilt ~ making us believe the lie that we’re not good enough for any good at all~ especially for any good things that God has to offer. Yet, that’s exactly what God had in mind for His created people with His plan of salvation wrapped in awesome, unconditional love. Christ, The cross, the shed blood, the grave, the resurrection and the victory over death. It’s what He came for and It’s yours! It’s mine! It’s ours for the asking and receiving of it. Look to the cross ~ That scandalous event of Christ’s blood shed was for our salvation for this journey of our “now” life and “Life Everlasting” and it’s there for us, when we miss the marks along the way. Beautiful soul ~ Step into that peace!

John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever would believe on Him should not perish but have eternal life.”

1 Corinthians 1:18
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

We Can Still Trust Him

when we can't see past our doubtThere’s so much deception in our world today and truth is difficult to come by! So hard to decipher at times. Sometimes maybe it’s not really our lack of faith and trust in God that tugs at our heartstrings and leaves us feeling guilty but rather our lack of trust lies in those people that surround us; those, controlling our countries, our world, our world’s, and controlling those that don’t know Him or care to know Him. Somehow we have to trust a Sovereign God even for those who wander and walk away from the faith ~ yeah, to those He gives free choice and free will. Even through evil, He keeps them under His protection. Our prayers are our potent and powerful spiritual weapons of warfare in a world of deception and evil, when we can’t and don’t trust humanity to do the right thing or behave in the right way in this whacked out world! So, when we can’t see past our doubt, we can still trust our God to work out the details for those lost in ‘self’, arrogance and deception, and for a world caught up in deception ~ yeah ~ and some in violence! God has a plan for those! He has a purpose for those! He’s consistently working it out! His will and plan won’t be trumped by evil or thwarted by our feelings or fleeting moments of unbelief, so don’t succumb to the enemy’s lie that your moments of doubt make you “not good enough” to be a mighty warrior in this spiritual battle that’s so very real to the believer on a daily basis.

Hey heart, take heart and pray without ceasing even for those ~ Don’t give up ever, ever! Rejoice anyway! Even in the darkest moments of your soul….Rejoice! Don’t ever believe you’re not good enough to make a powerful difference! Don’t believe the lie that you can’t move the hand of God through your prayer. Prayer changes things ~ aren’t we thankful?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

All The Unthinkables

 

So today you get to breathe through all those unthinkables, unspeakables, and unbelievables stacked up on your plate because whatever miracle you hardly dare believe for, or speak of or think on, you know God is already on it! Nothing but nothing stops His power! His authority! Today we get to believe in the awesomeness of a God who speaks and makes a day, moves a mountain, hangs the moon, and calls the ocean’s boundaries into play. So tell me today beautiful soul, what can He not do for you?

Ephesians 3:20
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

His Grace For Now

So you messed up again and this time really badly! God’s offer of grace still stands for that! Thing is, are you willing to accept it? Then just straight out accept it, but at the same time remember He’s not offering grace for a re-run but just for now! We can’t live with the idea that we can redo just because we’re covered by His grace. Yeah, I get it, that some things are just too difficult to give up and so we hang on to them but I also get that He understands our frailty. He really does! He knows the struggle of our weak and fleshly humanity and how easy it is to succumb to it’s pitfalls and fall into the traps so readily made available to us. Our weaknesses are just so relentlessly there all the time and If it happens again His grace will totally meet us right there once again for that time, just as it always does!

Let’s get it though that His desire and His grace is sufficient to totally free us once and for all from whatever has us bound tightly. Accept His grace for that too! His grace totally exceeds the darkness of this wretched world and covers anything we could ever do. We have to want it to cover us though, so decide today to renew your heart and your mind with His help. Let’s change directions in our mind, heart and souls and be freed from the pitfalls that take us down!
