Just Laugh


When was the last time that you really laughed...

really laughed~

that belly laugh when your whole body is smiling?

It happened

when

I looked into the eyes of our grandson

who just discovered a

gurgle.

That's it,

a simple sound that kept rolling off his tongue,

even when hiccups tried to stop him,

he just kept going

and

I couldn't stop

laughing.

My whole body

smiling

because

of a gurgle...

because

I

was still

in the moment

absorbing what God had for me

at that moment~

something so simple

that brought me back to

His

simple truth of

I love you.

So simple

those three words

that can make your whole body smile.

What if you lived your day as

one who is loved

simply loved

unconditionally

just as you are

not as you think you should be...

right this second...

living as perfectly loved?

To really grasp it..

To grasp

how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—

that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:18-19

To be still

and

know

the

Love of God

for

you and for me...

so simple

like the innocence of a baby

who is just gurgling

and enjoying ever minute of it~

just because he can

just because I can

just because you can

because

You are Loved

beyond a shadow of a doubt~

no matter what~

Just because

you or I

make a mistake

doesn’t make us a mistake.

Just because someone rejects you or I

doesn’t make us a rejection.

Just because you or I

disappointed someone

doesn’t make us a disappointment~

Just because...

God says

You are mine Isaiah 43:1

His masterpiece Ephesians 2:10

His love endures forever Psalm 136:2

For God is love 1 John 4:8

It really is quite simple

and when you grasp it

you will do more than gurgle

you will belly laugh

&

your whole body will smile

as

His love replaces

all

Just because

His

Love

is

patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. I Corinthians 13: 4-8

So go ahead

and

just

Laugh

because that is what

His Word

is for you every day~

for

God

so

loved

the world...

which means you...

that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Now doesn't that make your

whole body

smile!
