this morning God showed me something so amazing. I could feel the weight of the world starting to press on my shoulder's as I lie in bed contemplating where to start. Instead I decided to pray. I thanked God for everyone and everything good in my life, (I wanted him to know I just wasn't coming for a handout!), then I began to talk to him about the weather, (What? I like sharing everything, lol) then gradually got to my requests. First I started with others, then a little for me.
What happened next was so astonishing I cried. I seen God as my father. I seen him smiling at me and wanting me to let go of all these "things" I had in my arms. I said to him, "Well, how can I? I don't even know what these "things" are, I mean I don't know why I feel so down today, or why I am worried. I need to know before I give them to you right?" I felt God's loving stare as to remind me, "He" already knows! I felt so liberated! I was like, "I don't have to know the reason why I feel the way I do, I can just hand you all this junk?" He said, "Yup" with a smile so big it lit up the heavens.
Running towards God now, I hurriedly gave him "ALL my things" (they looked like Charlie Brown's teacher talking) and immediately began doing a series of back flips in the spirit. Oh, I guess I should also mention in this vision, I was a young child full of agility :) :) :)
I wept and wept when I realized a fresh, once more, how much God truly cares for me. I just laid in bed a minute more marveling at his goodness and grace. I then ended my prayer asking the Lord to fill me to overflow with his love so that I could share what he so freely gave me. I love God so much, and I tell ya, I will forever be thankful for not only his "GREAT EXCHANGE" Jesus Christ, but his daily glimpses into eternity. The nourishment I receive for my soul is more than I could ever describe in a mere paragraph or two, yet I am always so anxious to try! Thank you Jesus for delivering me from the bondage of reasoning and having to know it all. I love you because YOU first loved me!
Please be blessed today, knowing God loves you, and that He has a tremendous plan for your life!
