Day 8: Real Joy


I am doing it again.

I am trying to make

GOD HAPPEN.

I had the best dream last night,

yet I forget all the details,

but it was a

PEACE DREAM

where i was headed into

an ANXIETY ridden situation

where GOD stopped me with HIS PEACE. 

It was so surreal,

that I want to go back to bed

to continue the dream

and actually remember all of it.

But maybe the purpose of the dream

was for me to be sitting here

IN HIS PERFECT PEACE

and SIMPLY RECEIVING 

this moment

FULLY

as a PEACEFUL MOMENT

without trying to figure out why,

because

HIS PEACE

 doesn't have to be figured out.

THE PEACE OF GOD

is HIS PRECIOUS GIFT

that is always available

IN CHRIST.

Just because

  GOD 

 never stops GIFTING you

with more of HIM,

because

HE IS so GRACIOUS

that HE SENT JESUS

to GIFT us with

A LOVE

that when RECEIVED

HE IS THE GIFT that never stops GIVING.

You have HIS GRACE now,

no matter what you may not have or wish you didn't have in your life

in this very moment.

For HIS LOVE never dries out.

FOR

"JESUS IS patient.

JESUS IS kind.

JESUS DOES NOT envy.

JESUS DOES NOT boast.

JESUS IS NOT proud.

JESUS DOES NOT dishonor others.

JESUS IS NOT self-seeking,

JESUS IS NOT easily angered.

JESUS keeps no record of wrongs.

JESUS DOES NOT delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

JESUS ALWAYS protects,

always trusts,

 always hopes,

always perseveres.

JESUS NEVER FAILS"

(1 Corinthians 13:4-8, the name of Jesus substituted for love).

Because

JESUS IS THE LOVE THAT TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING.

So why try to make

GOD HAPPEN

when

JESUS already HAPPENED

and never stops HAPPENING

for

I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the LORD GOD,

“who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty”

(Revelation 1:8).

Where do you NEED the LOVE OF JESUS

to overwhelm you in your HEART?

Just

BE STILL AND KNOW

for that is where

"JESUS IS"
