So, I thought I knew what those words mean, I’d heard them since I was a little girl, but after years of repetition and pain they became just words on a page to me. It wasn’t until true love rocked my world and revived my heart that I so came alive and could truly see and believe…
He pursued my heart with sweet words of tenderness until I ceased my striving for success and stopped running my life to listen. Is that really…You? You are REAL. Whoa. His reality and the new visions and dreams He gave me rescued me from the pit of depression, resuscitated my heart from the death of life without Him.
WOW. His PASSION. The words of His Word become so real and get so personal when you draw in to hear His voice, when He shows you His heart and yours yearns like His, when He invites you on an intimate adventure of purpose for people and you realize just how powerful and passionate this God of love is…
You might feel like one among many but the One who created everything made you uniquely, wonderfully in His reflection. He covered my imperfections with a veil of royalty and acceptance and brings me joy and fulfillment beyond my dreams. He turned the mess of my life into a striking masterpiece and He can bring peace to the shards of your shattered heart – if you’ll just release them.
He understands everything you feel, keeps track of every tear, hair and detail, sees what you go through and knows you by name. When you get to know Him you realize your worries and shame are nothing, all you thought you needed are nothing. Without Him we’re nothing – and God plus nothing equals EVERYTHING…
From the very beginning He set out on a plan to bring His beloved ones back to Him in the most riveting and real of romances: From a tree in a garden where we became separated, to a tree where Jesus became our sin and a bridge to relationship with Him – a gift of life eternal the way it was meant to be, to the Tree of Life in a garden restored where we will be reunited. Jesus did what He said, came back from the dead and His word will soon prove true when He returns again.
