Day 24: Leave It All


This morning the words

"LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND" kept playing in my mind,

as when these words hit me I kept singing them, as they are the lyrics to a song.

As tears fill my eyes

they come from a stance of great sorrow,

yet of great freedom.

As GOD has met me in every sorrow

as I have been

LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND,

as surrender is giving up a part of yourself that you want to hold onto,

but GOD is asking you to

TRUST HIM

with your most precious possession

which is your HEART.

Our HEART~

the core of our being.

Our HEART~

the receiver of love

and also of sorrow.

Our HEART~

the receiver of the ONE who

came to heal the brokenhearted.

I am not being a debbie downer

as I am smiling

for the JOY OF THE LORD overwhelms me

because HE is my HEART FILLER

because HIS SON comes and just doesn't put a bandaid

on our brokenness

as HE FILLS it

with HIMSELF.

So LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND

isn't just a cliche

as it is a way of life

that allows us to PRESS FORWARD

to LIVE in the moment

just as Paul has written~

"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of GOD in CHRIST JESUS"(Philippians 3:12-14).

LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND

becomes a way of life

that becomes natural as breathing

because

JESUS

goes beyond just healing,

as that is just the beginning

for what HE has prepared for us

is beyond what our eyes can see

in the here and now

because IN CHRIST

we are so full

so satisfied

and all we have to do

is

LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND.

And then you start

breathing like it is the first time

and you become lighter and lighter

as

PEACE fills your heart

because

JOY becomes a reality that you can't explain.

LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND

isn't just a cliche

as it is a SURRENDER

to a gentle sweet sweet

JESUS

who meets you right where you are

filling your HEART holes

with more of HIM.

Oh it is really so simple

when we

LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND

and come to

"THE WELL" (listen to the song below)
