Day 1: No Condemnation


FEBRUARY~

the shortest month.

FEBRUARY~

the month that may get an extra day

every 4 years

that makes it a wee bit longer,

but it will never make it into

the 30 or 31 days club.

FEBRUARY~

FALS SHORT.

But does that make FEBRUARY

less of a month.

Just because something FALLS SHORT,

Just because something is different,

doesn't make it less in value.

To FALL SHORT~

not meeting the expectations

of

yourself

of

others

of

GOD.

Hmm.

What if GOD gave up on you

just because you did not meet all HIS EXPECTATIONS?

We should ask Adam & Eve,

GOD'S perfect creations.

who FALL SHORT PERFECTLY

from the very beginning.

GOD said don't and they did.

But what did GOD do?

Did HE start over?

Oh HE never gives up on HIS CREATIONS,

as it is HIS CREATIONS who give up on HIM.

I question why do so many turn their heads away from GOD

when GOD is turning HIS head towards them.

Oh how I lived from a stance of FALLING SHORT

as I was told that I FALL SHORT

every time I FELL SHORT.

So I wore CONDEMNATION.

I lived in it.

Living from a stance of CONDEMNATION

creates an over zealous PERFECTIONIST

striving & striving to not FALL SHORT.

And then there is GOD,

Who is PERFECT.

How could we ever be PERFECT enough for a PERFECT GOD?

Wow.

Doesn't that make you breathe easier.

There is nothing we could ever do that is

PERFECT enough to be

PERFECT enough for a PERFECT GOD.

We all FALL SHORT.

BUT GOD doesn't leave us there.

Because a PERFECT FATHER

does not want HIS children to

FALL SHORT

of all that HE has for each & every one of us.

So what do we do?

We

"PUT HIM IN OUR STORY"

because HE wants us in HIS STORY.

Oh how I forget at times when I FALL SHORT

of my own expectations & of other's expectations,

but not of GOD'S

because

HIS EXPECTATION for all HIS children

is not to perish

ever ever ever.

So let's make the shortest month the forever month as

we

stop FALLING SHORT

because we

PUT JESUS in our story~

“For GOD so [greatly] loved and dearly prized ___________, (put your name)

that HE [even] gave HIS [One and] only begotten SON,

so that because _____________

believes and trusts in HIM [as SAVIOR]

___________ shall not perish,

but have eternal life" (John 3:16 "put your name version").

Happy FIRST DAY of FEBRUARY

and the best day of your life~

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for _________ who is in CHRIST JESUS" (Romans 8:1)

because IN HIM

we are

"FREE AMEN" (listen to the song below)
