Day 26: Beautifully Free


What if when you got to the top,

there wasn’t a BLOOMING ROSE.

You traveled a long prickly way

because you BELIEVED there was a ROSE.

You look around and there is no one there,

even though you were told that at the top

was where you BELONGED.

Did you waste your life TRUSTING the PROMISE

that

GOD WORKS FOR GOOD ALL THINGS FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE (Romans 8:28). But then you

SEE HIM.

Oh HE is BLOOMING.

HE is beyond more BEAUTIFUL than any ROSE.

HE comes toward you and you can’t keep your eyes off of HIM.

You can’t BELIEVE that it is really HIM

and HE really is coming to you.

Your HEART is overwhelming full and

you finally not only

BELIEVE

that this is where you

BELONG,

but you KNOW that this is where you always

BELONGED.

You look down at your knees and all the scratches and bruises

that the thorns of your

BROKEN FEELINGS,

BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS,

and BROKEN CIRCUMSTANCES

have caused are now gone.

You even forget about them.

For IN HIS PRESENCE

nothing matters,

but HIM~

JESUS,

whose thorns HE wore on HIS head to hold you.

You are the ROSE.

You are HIS ROSE.

You were always HIS ROSE.

Is that why HE was so overly protective over you

when HE told you

not to be anxious about anything

and

to not fear and to

"Be JOYFUL always,

PRAY continuously, and

give THANKS in ALL CIRCUMSTANCES

for this is the WILL of the ONE who wore the thorns" (I Thess. 5:16-18).

Oh HE really is REAL.

"For BLESSED are you who has BELIEVED that the LORD

would fulfill his promises to you!” (Luke 1:45).

For you really are

HIS DAUGHTER/SON

for your

FAITH has set you FREE and you are IN PEACE (Luke 8:48).

And now you not only

SEE it ALL,

but you are

experiencing it

ALL

because it was

HIS STRENGTH and HIS DIGNITY

that clothed you

every step that

you took up the thorny vine

that enabled you to

"laugh without fear of the future" (Proverbs 31:25)

because you are now in your

FUTURE

that was PROMISED to you

because this moment

right now was your

PURPOSE all along.

Now you know why there wasn’t just a

ROSE at the top of the stem,

as JESUS places a CROWN

on your head

that is filled with the most perfect

ROSES

that you have never seen before,

because HE is saving the best for this very moment.

For GOD WORKS ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD

OF THOSE LOVE HIM WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE~

"Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—

and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for HIS appearing"

(2 Timothy 4:8).

And that my friend

is

BROKEN INTO BEAUTIFUL~
