Hello! It’s safe to say I haven’t felt very good today or recently. I’ve felt angry, hurt, sad, lonely, unloved, fearful…I could go on… (I think it’s partly grief mixed in with all the changes..). But unloved isn’t true, neither is alone. I am beloved. God thinks I’m to die for and he thinks you are too. (Read John 3:16 and see for yourself). He is also always with us, He never leaves (or sleeps).
at the end of the day I can try and distract myself from issues, garden, do things I enjoy, have a cottage with a field, a husband, lovely kids, (all good things) but if I don’t have God, or take notice of him, if I don’t know why I’m here and who I’ve been made to be and am able to just be that person, I have nothing.
Thankfully, I do have Him and He will make everything right at the right time. He also lets me grieve and knows it is normal. What he doesn’t do is let me be comfortable with acting in the wrong way. There have been times today, when I have acted in the wrong way. This knowledge is a gift. So Thankyou Lord Jesus (and sorry to those I’ve been around)….
My favourite bit of the bible (song of Solomon 2:8-13) just because…read it, read it, read it!!!
The voice of my beloved!
Behold, he comes,
leaping over the mountains,
bounding over the hills.
My beloved is like a gazelle
or a young stag.
Behold, there he stands
behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
looking through the lattice.
My beloved speaks and says to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,
For behold, the winter is past;
the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away.
That’s Jesus right there baby! That’s what he does and who he is. Beautiful.
