Day 19: It Happens


HE HAPPENS.

And then we HAPPEN.

When we STOP!

And it only takes a SECOND.

Just one of your PRECIOUS SECONDS

of your

daily 86400 SECONDS

Even if you don't STOP

HE STILL HAPPENS

because

GOD never STOPS

pursuing HIS very own.

And that my friend is you & me & everyone else.

Why would GOD create someone HE didn't want?

Why would I take the time to go to a store to buy something

just to throw it out when I got home?

"The LORD is not slow in keeping HIS promise, as some understand slowness. Instead HE is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish,

but everyone to come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9)

HE WAS THERE because HE IS HERE.

Even when I was running in the other direction.

HE never left me.

HE was there in my past when I almost died as a baby.

HE WAS THERE

when I was destroying myself with bulimia.

HE WAS THERE

when no one else was.

HE WAS THERE

when I would beat myself up because

I was seen and treated as unfavored.

HE WAS THERE

when fear

would strive to get the best of me

HE WAS THERE.

HE found me.

And then I HAPPENED.

Because A REAL GOD

who created me

PURSUED me.

But HE didn't STOP there,

because HE knew I needed

JESUS.

Oh GOD got my attention

as I spent time with HIM to really get to know HIM,

once I realized that HE wanted me to come to HIM

as my IMPERFECT self.

Because who TRUSTS someone they don't know?

Well GOD never left me

and I wouldn't leave HIM

because

I liked who I was becoming in HIS PRESENCE.

Little 'ole IMPERFECT me

PURSUED by a PERFECT GOD

who introduced me to

HIS PERFECT SON

and then

I really HAPPENED.

Oh the rest of my story is

HIS STORY

the moment

I STOPPED trying to write my own story

without HIM.

Oh STOP for a SECOND

And STOP for another SECOND

to be IN HIS PRESENCE.

And before you know it

your STORY becomes

HIS STORY

so that you never want to STOP being with HIM,

because

a SECOND

without

GOD is a SECOND without

REAL JOY

REAL PEACE

REAL HOPE

REAL LOVE

that was birthed on the day

JESUS

STOPPED on A CROSS~

"But GOD shows HIS love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us"

(Romans 5:8).

Oh GOD always HAPPENS because JESUS HAPPENED

even when your LIFE is not HAPPENING the way you want it to.

And that my friend is why we have to

STOP to BE STILL WITH

GOD & HIS SON this very

SECOND

and never STOP!

And the best part is that you can

COME AS YOU ARE

and bring all your "stuff",

because that is the sweet spot where GOD & JESUS HAPPEN.

Oh "AMAZING GRACE how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me".

Oh come and experience

"GRACE AMAZING" -
