Peering through the Looking Glass

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.

About leftnfree

I am a flawed Christian who loves Jesus more than anything. Originally from the east coast of the US (Philadelphia, Pa). Currently living in Az. I am a single female who has no children. I do have a bunch of nieces and nephews. I do love to dance, swim, sing, travel, and play. I love dogs and am allergic to cats an sulfa. I don't drink or do street drugs or abuse prescription drugs. I love the USA and am ashamed of some of the folks that are running the show in DC (both parties). Personally, I don't think that our founding fathers intended for the service of our members of congress was supposed to be a life long job. I think that they meant for it to be short term. I love all kinds of movies but classics are becoming my favorite more and more. I do not like much of what is on television today because the world of make believe "reality tv" is unreal, and the rest well I just don't like the animation programs either. I love Jesus and try to serve Him with all I am becoming more an more like Him daily. I may stumble and I may make a mistake but I can always count on the loving arms of my Jesus and my Heavenly Father to come pick me up again and help me stand. I am not afraid of trying or failing but I am afraid of bragging and doing it on my own. I try to love all people and help all people (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't). But even in that God is my all an all. That is who I am. Nothing more and nothing less. What you see is what you get. Like I said at the beginning I am flawed. I am human, and while I am not sinless I am able to sin less and help others to learn how to sin less. God is good. I hope that you enjoy reading the things that I write.

  1. You have touched my heart beyond words, and deepen the hunger inside of me even more for that day I will be at home before the throne. Thank-you and God Bless!
