What if?


It is quite simple

yet complicated at the same time when we choose not to

BELIEVE

what is true.

It is quite simple though

to

BELIEVE

what isn't true because it is more easily accepted when you

BELIEVE

those voices in your head that

you aren't good enough because you could be better

& that

life is life~

nothing less & nothing more.

You wake up & start doing your thing & hope that something good will happen

& then if it does there is a

"YEAH"

& then if it doesn't there is that

"UGH"

& then maybe, just maybe if you are lucky enough another

"YEAH"

will come your way.

Is that it~

Is that what we are living for~

Riding a roller coaster of YEAHS & UGHS

& hoping that there are more

"YEAHS"?

But what if

Life is one big

"YEAH"

~no matter what happens or doesn't happen

~no matter if we feel like

"YEAHING"or not.

What if there was something more to

BELIEVE

that goes way beyond ourselves~

that if we

BELIEVED

that we just aren't passing through this life to check off our to do lists

& just surviving in the moments

as we are waiting for a greater moment

& for that greater moment to last forever.

WHAT IF~

"Long before HE laid down earth’s foundations, HE had us in mind,

had settled on us as the focus of HIS love,

to be made whole and holy by HIS love..."*

WHAT IF~

"Long, long ago HE decided to adopt us into HIS family through JESUS CHRIST.

(What pleasure HE took in planning this!)

HE wanted us to enter into the celebration of HIS lavish gift-giving by the hand of

HIS beloved SON...."*

WHAT IF~

"Because of the sacrifice of the MESSIAH, HIS blood poured out on the altar of the Cross,

we’re a free people—

free of penalties and punishments

chalked up by all our misdeeds.

And not just barely free, either.

Abundantly free!"*

WHAT IF~

"HE thought of everything,

provided for everything we could possibly need,

letting us in on the plans

HE took such delight in making..."*

WHAT IF~

"HE set it all out before us IN CHRIST,

a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up IN HIM, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth."*

And what if we

BELIEVED~

" It’s IN CHRIST that we find out who we are & what we are living for

. Long before we first heard of CHRIST and got our hopes up,

HE had HIS eye on us,

had designs on us for glorious living,

part of the overall purpose HE is working out in everything and everyone"

WHAT IF~

"It’s IN CHRIST that you, once you heard the truth and BELIEVED IT

found yourselves home free—

signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit.

This signet from GOD

is the first installment on what’s coming,

a reminder that we’ll get everything GOD

has planned for us, a praising and glorious life" *(Ephesians 3:1-14)

Oh

WHAT IF YOU JUST BELIEVED IT ALL~

What would your days be like now?
