Day 1: No Condemnation
the shortest month.
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.
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
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?
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
of all that HE has for each & every one of us.
So what do we do?
"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
HIS EXPECTATION for all HIS children
is not to perish
ever ever ever.
So let's make the shortest month the forever month as
stop FALLING SHORT
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
"FREE AMEN" (listen to the song below)
