Day 24: Just Sit


Picture this~

An empty room

Totally white

with only

2 chairs~

One for you

and

One for Jesus.

What thoughts are running through your head?

Tears fill my eyes

and right now I don't know why.

Could it be that

I have complicated my relationship with Jesus?

Have I made it about wanting blessings from Him,

instead of just desiring Him?

Have I become so distracted that I have filled the room

with so many other things, that I can't even see Him?

Just you & Jesus,

sitting in an empty room

What would you say?

How would you feel?

I would say that

I am sorry

because I haven't

put Him first.

And then I can picture

Jesus

looking into my eyes with

such

Compassion

Gentleness

Sweetness

Without Condemnation,

even though I would want to hide my head in shame,

as these words would be swirling in my head~

"I am not good enough to be sitting here, just You & I."

"Why would you even want to spend time with just me?"

And

Jesus

would still be looking

into my eyes & into your eyes with such

Compassion

Gentleness

Sweetness

Without Condemnation

because that is

Who

Jesus Is

and nothing

that you or I feel

or have done or not done

can ever change that

because

it has always been about

You & I

because

He made everything

about US

the moment

"He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—

even death on a cross! Philippians 2:8

Just so

He could sit with

each one of us~

One on one~

every second of every day,

so that

we can be filled with

His Compassion

His Gentleness

His Sweetness

His Acceptance~

making every moment

the best moment

if only

we always picture ourselves

alone

in

An empty room

Totally white

with only

2 chairs~

One for you

and

One for Jesus~
