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
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
HE SEES all of me & HE SEES all of you~
from our outside to our insides
that makes us so vulnerable
JESUS doesn't move away
JESUS doesn't condemn
JESUS doesn't send us away.
Oh how easily I forget in those moments
"my" heart is broken
I am left by "my"self
"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
"Fixing 'my' eyes on JESUS" (Hebrews 12:2)
"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~
JESUS just wants to be with us
as we are on the way of becoming who
GOD created us to be.
"Come to ME ALL who are..." (Matthew 11:28)
& bring all your stuff
HE ALWAYS IS
to all who
"COME TO THE TABLE" (listen to the song below)
