I absolutely LOVED this morning’s prayer time at the church! It’s always a good to be there praying in the company of other “pray-ers”, but this was above and beyond. Why?
God showed up.
I mean, He always does. But today He REALLY showed up!
I don’t know about the other people at the prayer time, but I felt like God was there just for me. I knew He was pursuing me with an all-consuming, passionate, overwhelming love. He’s relentless. He created me in His very image so I could be just like Him. He knows me better than I will ever know myself. He never gives up on me.
God loves me. He REALLY loves me!
As I prayed, I felt His hand on my head, just as a parent touches a child, and His love just poured over me. I wrote in my journal: I am loved. I am accepted. I don’t have to do anything to earn it. I don’t deserve it, but God loves me anyway. He takes care of me. He gives me His very best, and all I have to do is receive it.
I know who I am. I belong to Almighty God.
A song played.
“I’ve been crucified with Christ and I no longer live. Jesus forever lives in me.”
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
