Day 4: Get Out Of The Way


ONCE UPON A TIME

JESUS said to me

I FORGIVE YOU.

ONCE UPON A TIME

I RECEIVED HIM.

But then life comes in

and then you realize that just because you are

FORGIVEN

doesn't mean that others see you that way.

I have learned this lesson way too many times,

and GOD has been knocking on my heart to really understand

what happened that moment

I looked up and asked JESUS to come into my heart.

JESUS covered me.

JESUS covered my past sins.

JESUS covers my present sins.

JESUS covers my future sins.

My sins. Your sins.

Sin~

Falling short of the glory of GOD

Sin~

Being our imperfect selves

Sin~

In need of a perfect covering to restore what was lost.

So why do I still live as GUITLY

when I can't perform perfectly for everyone around me.

Am I still striving to be perfect in me instead of really grasping

what happened

ONCE UPON A TIME ago

when I confessed my need for a SAVIOR

and HE RECEIVED me

and forever covered me.

Have I confused CHRISTIANITY

for perfect performance based living.

Oh yes.

I can't, but HE can.

"I can do all things THROUGH CHRIST who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).

I wear JESUS who covers my imperfections.

Once again GOD has gently reminded me that I have to step out of the way

and RECEIVE HIS SON as HE PERFECTLY covers all of

my imperfections

that I see and that other's see.

But then again

why would I

why would you

need JESUS if you or I were perfect.

THANK YOU GOD for reminding me once again

that when I said YES TO JESUS

ONCE UPON A TIME ago

and when you said YES TO JESUS

ONCE UPON A TIME ago

or maybe you have never

ONCE UPON A TIME ago

said YES TO JESUS.

But our YES TO JESUS

COVERS us

with JESUS HIMSELF

that is not of ourselves.

Therefore,

I am getting out of the way, once again

and letting GOD be GOD

&

letting JESUS be JESUS

For

"YOU GOT THIS" (listen to the song below)
