Day 21: Forever Unbroken


Everyone has heard about the boy

who killed a giant with

a slingshot and some stones.

Everyone has heard about the man

who killed the husband of the

woman who he had an affair with.

DAVID~

who is called

A Man After GOD'S OWN HEART.

Hmm.

A man who did right, but a man who did not so right.

How could he be called a Man After GOD'S OWN HEART?

Because DAVID LOVED GOD

with all his heart soul and mind.

Because he failed.

Because he didn’t stay there

Because he humbled himself to the LORD.

And came back to the LORD as broken

Because he is part of JESUS' dysfunctional family

Because he abided in a relationship with HIS LORD as he never stopped

talking to HIS LORD, as he wrote the psalms.

Because he was real.

Because he was vulnerable.

Because he was authentic.

Because his FAITH was bigger than his fear.

As his FAITH killed a giant, and the stones where just a prop.

To show how everything pales to the power of FAITH.

As FAITH wins every time

The LOVE of FAITH: LOVING GOD with all your heart.

The PEACE of FAITH: LOVING JESUS with all your soul.

The JOY of FATIH: LOVING THE HOLY SPIRIT with all your mind.

Oh having a HEART OF FAITH

is what we are called to have

as we are all called to be

a man and a woman after GOD'S OWN HEART

Who comes like David.

As real.

As authentic.

As BROKEN

with a broken and contrite heart~

"My only sacrifice [acceptable] to GODis a broken spirit; A broken and contrite heart

[broken with sorrow for sin, thoroughly penitent], such, O GOD, YOU will not despise"

(Psalm 51:17 AMP).

Oh the sweet spot

where GOD pours out HIS FORGIVING EVERLASTING LOVE

because

all GOD wants is your HEART

because GOD gave us ALL HIS HEART

that day on the CROSS

when JESUS became BROKEN.

Because IN CHRIST BROKEN is never final.

BROKEN is BETTER.

Think about it.

What is better broken?

A pinata. A nut. An egg.

Your HEART.

Are you after GOD'S OWN HEART?

Oh if you aren't,

COME.

If you are, keep COMING

and never stop

COMING

because the ONE who was BROKEN for you is calling you to

COME to ME all who are weary and I will give you rest.

Only JESUS makes

BEAUTIFUL out of BROKEN.

Therefore

live as

A man after GOD'S OWN HEART

&

live as

A woman after GOD'S OWN HEART

and draw so close to

the ONE whose one desire is to draw so close to you

so you never keep

"JESUS AT A DISTANCE"
