Hiding in Jesus

“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”  Do you know what it is like to have a week that mentally there is not an ounce of reason left, and you really feel like something that cat drug in from the yard?  I have been on that rollercoaster this week.  With all my knowledge of God, sometimes the best I could come up with was a song I learned as a young child-“Jesus loves me”.  But what truth is in that song!

Somehow I need to express something very important to my readers, especially believers.  There are times in this walk that are not pretty, and are very exhausting.  The enemy waits for this to happen so that he can pounce on us and kick, and dig into our empty places and create turmoil within us.  Sometimes the Lord allows it for a time, but only if HE plans to bring something good out of it.  We need to remember above all else, that HE loves us, and does not ever leave us.  We need to stop praying to be delivered from ever little thing that causes us discomfort, and start praying to learn what ever we have been brought here to learn.  It is truly the purifying fire.  We go through hard times to become more like HIM.  I have been stuck this week on some different scriptures, that all seem to point to “who do we think we are? Do we really think we will have an easier life than Jesus had on earth?  Do we think we are greater than our master? Do we think we can pick and choose scripture to be obedient too?”  If you never have stepped out of the bubble of the physical church and touched a heart with kindness, or opened the door for someone struggling…you may not understand why the enemy would want to rip and tear at any one person.  If you are not ever experiencing stuggles and enemy attack, then I am going to beg you to pray and ask HIM if there is anything standing between you and HIM.  I have found that HE will answer quickly. 

If you do know what I am talking about…then come to the ONE who can satisfy, and restore.  I love that when I feel like the enemy lays me at HIS feet and laughs…my Jesus picks me up and cleans me up and bandages all the wounds, dresses me in the finest clothing, adorns me jewels, and we dance.  Surrounded in the most awesome love.  I love that HE wraps HIM self around me and HIS strength is apparent to my heart.  HE calls me to sleep there, and covers me with HIS robe. HE sings over me. HE reminds me that  although it looks like the enemy wins some battles, he has already lost the war!!  Does that do anything for anyone elses heart?? It encourages mine greatly. 

Jesus, the enemy is a liar, and he means no one any good thing.  Thank you for carrying us when we are to weak to walk anymore.  Thank you for filling us with your peace and your joy, that you gladly give to us, when asking.  Thank you for being just a cry away, and for intervening on our behalf.  Thank you for always bringing something good out of the bad.  You truly have our best interest at heart.  I am amazed at how high and deep and wide is your love for us.  Give us a hunger for more of you, even and foremost in the worst of circumstances.  Might we only want you, stretch out our arms and reach for the only One who will ever love us unconditionally, and delights in just hearing our voice directed at HIM.  We are desperate for you.  Things will only get worse in this world, teach us to hide ourselves in you.  You are the only God and there is no other…make it so in our hearts.  your daughter, and princess, who knows there is no life away from you.

    Hi Sweetie,

    Yep! I am familiar with feeling like something the cat drug in from the yard but I do love my cats dearly:)
    It made me smile when I read about the song “Jesus Loves Me”. This song, and “Jesus loves the little children” and “This little light of mine” have all been running through my head all week. Such simple truths and “unless we become as little children”–.
    I am so glad it is the weekend for you to get some much needed “resting up” for body and soul. My package came today and WOW, so many goodies!
    I have no excuses anymore so I will get to digging in and broaden my horizons. It is so good to be a believer in the one and only. I don’t know how people make it without Him, I sure couldn’t and I know it. I love to throw in the enemys face that he might think he’s getting somewhere, but he has been declared a loser and he is a loser for all eternity and I love this truth in my heart!!
    I love you girl and pray your weekend is blessed with rest and restoration. And thank you so much from my heart for letting your light shine******
    It is beautiful and bright!!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog, darla. Of course, I had to return the favor.

    It has really been helping me to get things like this out by blogging. This is a good post.

    What kind of ministry do you do?

  4. Princess Darla!
    What a word! Thank you for visiting at one of my weak moments this week and leaving an uplifting message.

    Your right the enemy is a liar and Jesus is bigger than that enemy. We have JESUS! Yes He loves me & you!

    I heard a message this week that helped-sometimes we just have to make up our minds to commit.

    I’m committed! Like the old hymn–“There’s no turning back!”

    Love ya & Blessings my Princess sister–

  7. I think we all need a reminder that our God is soooooo huge and He is so much stronger than our enemy. I feel like so very often my walk is not pretty but to the praise of His glory, He turns our ugly into something beautiful. I will be praying that He will strengthen you and encourage you this week. Love you,
