Day 21: Lost in Him


A NEW Year~

A NEW Me & A NEW You.

How are your RESOLUTIONS? How NEW are you?

As I can't keep RESOLUTIONS

I don't make them,

BUT instead I move closer to

JESUS

because HE can only do what I can't do on my own.

Moving closer to JESUS is hard at times especially

when we are so focused on our shortcomings

that we believe HE is too

because

HE SEES all of me & HE SEES all of you~

from our outside to our insides

&

that makes us so vulnerable

BUT

JESUS doesn't move away

&

JESUS doesn't condemn

&

JESUS doesn't send us away.

Oh how easily I forget in those moments

when

"my" heart is broken

when

I am left by "my"self

when

"my" expectations are not met.

BUT there HE IS ALWAYS.

Oh how we can get in the way of

JESUS calling us ALWAYS.

So I continue to FAST from "my"self

by getting "my" eyes off of "my"self

& by

"Fixing 'my' eyes on JESUS" (Hebrews 12:2)

because

JESUS SAID~

"Whoever wants to be MY disciple must deny themselves

and take up their cross and follow ME" (Mark 8:34)

HE is the MY & the ME that I am to be

FIXED on & FOLLOW~

THE ONE whose arms are always opened

to you & I ALWAYS~

all because

JESUS just wants to be with us

as we are on the way of becoming who

GOD created us to be.

Therefore

"Come to ME ALL who are..." (Matthew 11:28)

& bring all your stuff

because there

HE ALWAYS IS

to all who

"COME TO THE TABLE" (listen to the song below)
