Day 24: Inner Stirring

JESUS IS more than just AN OPTION

because HE IS ALWAYS JESUS

and HE won't leave you alone.

There is something inside of me

that keeps STIRRING

that is so REAL

that won't leave me alone.

When I want to go left

there is a STIRRING inside of me

telling me to go right~

"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying,

'This is the way; walk in it" (Isaiah 30:21).

When I want to say something

I am STIRRED to not say anything at all~

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen" (Ephesians 4:29).

When I want to do what I want to do when I want to do it

I am STIRRED to do the opposite~

"Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the GOD of peace will be with you" (Philippians 4:9).

When all is dark and I have lost my way

I am STIRRED to look upon the LIGHT~

"YOUR word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path" (Psalm 119:105).

This STIRRING in my heart

is always

reminding me that

there is always a better way than my way

because

JESUS IS SO REAL

that

HE LIVES

inside of me & inside of you~

"But the HELPER(Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby),

the HOLY SPIRIT,

whom the FATHER will send in

MY name [in MY place, to represent ME and act on MY behalf],

HE will teach you all things.

And HE will help you remember everything that I have told you" (John 14:26).

JESUS

is not a figment of my imagination

because

when I am connected

to this inner STIRRING

I am filled beyond my wildest dreams

with what is better than any STIRRING that wants to lead me astray~

"But the HOLY SPIRIT produces this kind of fruit in our lives:

love, joy, peace,

patience, kindness, goodness,

faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23)

because

there is something so REAL

STIRRING deep inside of me

&

STIRRING deep inside of you

because

IN JESUS

there is no getting away from

REAL HOPE & REAL PEACE

that washes over you like a tidal wave

from the inside out~

"Oh, holiness keep haunting me Oh, YOU'RE my hope, YOU're my peace" ("Ghost" )*

and that my friend is why

JESUS IS

not a figment of your imagination

because

IN JESUS

you have no choice but to experience

the supernatural inside that you can't control

because

THE HOLY "GHOST" (listen to the song below)

lives INside of you.
