As I sit here today, just 10 days past the day we celebrate Christ Resurrection I am in a place of awe. I sit in this place of awe simply because God the Father has shown me that as I make my journey along this life there are many times when I am at loss. I lose my balance and stumble and fall and yet get back up when all the world is shouting to me to stay down. But God and His gentle hand well they lift me up again.
When I stumble and fall it is not easy to get up.. I often times am angry and hurt, and with skinned knees, palms, and probably deep cuts and bruises somewhere I just don’t care. But the Father, well He looks me over and says “Daughter, they are bruises nothing serious to worry about.” He patches them up and gives me His love. I am undeserving of His love but on so many levels I am also glad that He loves me.
Do I get it right? NO way… Almost never do I get it 100% right. His love though is always right. Yet even His love may hurt sometimes. His hurt unlike man’s hurt is for my good. Yes, He may put some restriction upon me or some type of gripping me to “squeeze me like orange juice” but His restriction and grip is for the purpose to make me like Him.
So as I am being reminded that life is forever about change and the fact that the Resurrected King will come back and change this world, as much as He continues to want me to change to become like Him, I long for the day when Christ returns and claims His fellow citizens and we all begin to sing HOLY, HOLY, HOLY at the throne of the One who has set us free. As I peer through the looking-glass of time I see the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit all just being worshipped but both the Father and the Holy Spirit acknowledge that it is only because of the Son(Jesus Christ) that we are free to sing Holy, Holy, Holy. When I am brushed up nicely and set before the Lord, may I sing the songs of praise and adoration to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and all that He has ever done for me, none of that matters as much as the love in His heart when they nailed Him to the tree for my sins. So when He returns for me I will be ready to be taken to that throne and to be amazed and awed even more but proclaim. The blood of Jesus Christ made me clean. Thank you Savior for all You gave.
