Day 4: Love Finds You


I am not a silent kind of person,

because even when I am silent

you can see my feelings

you can see what I am thinking~

at least I think you can.

If I am silent it is because

I have nothing to say that you want to hear,

so sometimes it is just easier to say nothing

because I don't want to cause conflict.

But is it okay to keep silent about

JESUS?

To keep HIM in a box

because someone might find

HIM offensive.

To keep HIM quiet until a rainy day when someone is so desperate

that they have to ask

about HIM.

To keep HIM hidden

~because what if everyone then would really know how you felt about HIM

~because what if everyone would really know how HE changed you

~because what if everyone would really know that HE is REAL

~because what if everyone would really know that HE loves you

~because what if everyone would really know that

HE is your everything

AND

if you kept silent about HIM then you would be keeping the

REAL you silent

then what would be the point of your existence

if you had to keep

JESUS in a box

hidden for a rainy day

until someone looks into your eyes

and finally sees that

HE is the LOVE of your LIFE

because you wouldn't be anything or anybody

without HIM.

I am not a silent kind of a person

and I can't keep quiet

because

JESUS won't let me be quiet

because

JESUS wasn't born to be hidden

for a rainy day.

HE was born to be born into

every person's life

whether they believe it or not

because one day

I will not be able to contain my

JOY

when I meet JESUS face to face

and I know that

I will be so happy that I didn't keep

HIM in a box

because

JESUS came and took me out of a box that I constructed with my own two hands

that kept

not good enough Joni hidden for so many years

just waiting for those three words

I LOVE YOU

that replaced every word that wasn't truth

that tried to keep me hidden,

Oh Happy NEW YEAR

Oh Happy NEW MOMENT~

NEWS FLASH~

JESUS IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS~

"JESUS said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.

The one who believes in ME will live, even though they die;

 and whoever lives by believing in ME will never die.

Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)

And all you have to say is

Yes, LORD,” she replied, “I believe that you are the MESSIAH,

the SON of GOD, WHO is to come into the world” (John 11:27)

Because

JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~

HE is

JESUS (listen to "If I Was Jesus" below)
