I don’t know about you, but I find myself wanting God more and more each day.
This week is Holy week, it is in remembrance of the crucifixion of Jesus and then His resurrection on the third day. Jesus chose to put himself on the cross for the Love that He has for us. I am so amazed and in awe of Jesus. I didn’t realize that He chose to be put on the cross until this past weekend of church service. I thought like most people do, people put Him on the cross…but they did not. Jesus followed through with His mission and He thought of us each step of the way!
This takes my breath away.
As a new Christian, I have been seeking more of Him. But I think I was missing the whole point. I was seeking Love the wrong way. I wasn’t recognizing who Jesus is and who I am in Him. I kept floundering and the roller coaster has been up, down and sideways. Seeking Him is allowing the Holy Spirit to work in you. I think maybe being baptized has a part in this equation as well. I have not been baptized yet, but maybe it is because I did not truly understand who Jesus is and what He did for me and for everyone? I do believe in Him and I now understand that He died for me, for all of my past and present sins and I can only find true freedom in Him.
Here I am, God I present myself to you
I am your daughter, I am a princess to a King, I am made new in you.
Speaking Life is so important. I now realize just how words impact thoughts, feelings and emotions. Words can distort the truth and hinder my walk in Christ. I want to grow and become who He has called me to be… I want to walk with Him and talk with Him.
God is at work, He is tearing down the walls, He is the Light in the Dark. He is the Good Shepherd, the Prince of Peace, the Almighty God. Who am I to say that He is not big enough to handle my struggles and my pain? Only He can heal the brokenness, period.
Wake my will up to God, I want to follow you. I want you.
My heart says, this is Real, Jesus is Real.
34 “I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13: 34-35 CSB
I want more of you Jesus. I am only complete in You. I am seeking freedom.
My new Motto: It’s Kingdom or Nothing!
