Day 23: Always


GOD gives you & I PERMISSION

to LIVE TODAY

in

LOVE

PEACE

JOY

&

HOPE

even if we feel

UN~Loved

UN~Peaceful

UN~Joyful

UN~Hopeful

because GOD isn't a feeling.

Feelings come & go

and change with the wind

BUT GOD IS

Always & Forever

no matter

what you are feeling

&

no matter

what others are feeling.

GOD IS GOD.

What if the WAIT is over?

What if today you could move beyond your feelings

and give yourself

PERMISSION

to

LIVE IN

A

LOVE

PEACE

JOY

&

HOPE

that never changes

in spite of what you are feeling?

Seems impossible, doesn't it.

As your thoughts & circumstances

are so real

and you start to question

whether

you are

LOVED

whether

PEACE in the storm is a possibility

whether

JOY can put a smile on your face

whether

HOPE is something that you can touch.

And then you hear the word that changes everything,

even your feelings~

JESUS.

The NAME above all NAMES.

GOD'S greatest gift of

MERCY &GRACE

to one & all

as HE doesn't discriminate.

JESUS~

GODS way of giving

you & I

PERMISSION

to be filled with

LOVE

PEACE

JOY

&

HOPE

in the here & now

because

JESUS IS ALWAYS

giving you

PERMISSION

to live above & beyond

every feeling

every circumstance

that is so very real

that you can't believe that you could

ever experience it

because

HIS LOVE IS ALWAYS~

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in CHRIST JESUS" (Romans 8:1)

HIS PEACE IS ALWAYS~

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.

Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid" (John 14:27)

HIS JOY & HIS HOPE IS ALWAYS~

"May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT" (Romans 15:13)

The WAIT is over.

PERMISSION to LIVE in

the ABUNDANT life that

JESUS has come to give

ALWAYS~

"But we have this precious treasure [the good news about salvation]

in [unworthy] earthen vessels [of human frailty], s

o that the grandeur and surpassing greatness of the power will be [shown to be] from

GOD [HIS sufficiency]

and not from ourselves.

We are pressured in every way [hedged in],

but not crushed;

perplexed [unsure of finding a way out], but not driven to despair;

hunted down and persecuted, but not deserted [to stand alone];

struck down, but never destroyed;

ALWAYS carrying around in the body the dying of JESUS,

so that the [resurrection] life of JESUS also may be shown in our body.

For we who live are constantly [experiencing the threat of] being handed over to death for JESUS’ sake,

so that the [resurrection] life of JESUS also may be evidenced in

our mortal body [which is subject to death].

So physical death is [actively] at work in us, but [spiritual] life [is actively at work] in you"

(2 Corinthians 4:7-12)

PERMISSION granted

because

"ALWAYS JESUS" (listen to the song below)
