I am blown away this morning Father. Blown away with what you have placed in my grasping fingers...grasping, grasping, always grasping and never receiving. I am sorry for all that I am and have been and THANK YOU that 'Your grace is new every morning'....Thank You for my church and community that pushed me always and always towards seeking YOU and Your will. Thank You for my husband and family that we are all seeking to .....seeking Your face, Your will....I am just blown away and wanted to say Thank You......
Genesis 31-33; Luke 13
Genesis 31: 3 Then the LORD said to Jacob, "Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you." What a scary thing to have to do, 'go back' to the brother you screwed out of his inheritance. Go back and submit yourself to him.....'I will be with you.'...How many situations are there in my life that need to be revisited, relationships restored.....??? I don't want to hear it........am I?? What does 'going back' look like??
Luke 13: 22Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?"
He said to them, 24"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.' "But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.' 26"Then you will say, 'We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.'
27"But he will reply, 'I don't know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!'
OK this verse just scares me...I believe the bible and here it 'sounds' like it's pretty clear ......... I want everyone to KNOW Him.........that's all, I just want everyone to know Him.....not my place to judge who does or doesn't or to preach anything....just to LIVE KNOWING You.....live loving YOU.....and in that love trust that I will live loving others.....all others
