For those of you who know me well you will know that there is a serious side to me. I don't like to show it too often, incase you get the wrong impression that I actually do have coherent thoughts at times.
But today is one of those days when there was a shadow of light in the armour of fog that usually accompanies my train of thought.
I may laugh and joke, I may write somewhat humorous blogs at times, but when it comes to thinking of My Jesus I am ever so serious.
You see I love him above everything and everyone. He is the reason I breathe and the reason I get out of bed in the morning. You all know by reading my testimony that were it not for Him, I would not be here today.
So this morning as I was getting ready for work, I was singing Â€ÂœThe wonder of the CrossÂ€ and Â€ÂœThe old rugged crossÂ€, when I had a real sense of the Love of God sweep over me.
It was as if I were being carried on the wind or floating on a dream. I could not touch or taste this sense, but it was so real to me that I stood in the kitchen and basked in its light.
So much did this sense of His sacrifice affect me that I forgot for a moment I was supposed to be going to work.
In that one moment I had no words to express my thanks and my gratitude for such Love, for such Sacrifice, for Jesus.
Nothing else mattered, and to be honest, nothing else can matter.
The Love of God blows my mind...no matter what i'm doing God never fails to show me signs of His love for me...Thats why I am a worshipper...and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth...You had a spiritual and true encounter this morning with God...His Love...thats all I can say is His Love!!!
Isn't it awesome that He knows when we need a light heart and other times when He needs us to draw near to Him - I don't believe we think often enough that He needs us to draw near to Him to assure Him that we are still His. He especially knows when we need to draw near to Him - He knows when and how to show His arms of security are still wrapped around us.
God bless you on this day of His awesome revelation!
Amen, Bethy! I often get caught up in the 'doing' and 'thinking' of the day and in the middle of it all it's like a gentle hand on my shoulder... God saying, "I Am here."; and I just have to stop everything and praise Him. I cherish those moments!
Amen, Beth. It's truly awesome when we feel that presence of Jesus, knowing how powerful, loving and merciful He is. I also find myself saying "I just don't have the words."
Thank you for this testimony, my dear friend.
Well, I enjoyed reading your serious side too. I like some of the newer groups and some songs they sing, but a lot of the old ones are precious. The Old Rugged Cross, is sure one of them. Shows how God hates sin, and also how much God loves the sinner, and wants to deliver.
Thanks for the reminder of that great song, and also The Wonder of the Cross, billy
Bethy, I can sense your passion for God in your writing. How great it would be if we all at times got caught up in those moments where nothing else matters. Blessings, efrank.
Your beautiful words testify how much you love the lord! Inspiring. Thank you for sharing.
"HE'S ALL I NEED "
He Â€Â˜s all I need, He Â€Â˜s all I ne-ed, He Â€Â˜s all I need, He Â€Â˜s all I need
Jesus supplies, Jesus supplies, Jesus supplies all our neeeeds.
Up on the mountain, Down in the valley, Darkness of night, Darkness of night
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus is all that I need... Oh!
Beth, I now cannot ever imagiane waking up without JESUS, for he is all I need.
Love you girl for all you do for God's kingdom.
