Somehow in this crazy messed up world we live in, its so easy to be consumed by everything and around us. Then the Ultimate question surfaces “God where are you? you seem far away”. God does not move, we move. Revisiting the Cross, and the love of God is vital to my journey to know HIM more. I don’t claim to know all there is to know, but I what i do know is…life doesn’t work for me without a focus on God’s love for me even while i was still his enemy.
So today , while keeping the cross in the front of my mind, looking at scriptures that remind me of my sin, and how much i don’t believe (and i really want to), here is just a few..
Luke 9:25 What gain is it for someone to have won the world, and to have lost or ruined his/her very self. (paraphrased)
Romans 5:6-11 (my thoughts) looking at this with the eyes of how much sin is the refusal of God’s love.
Matthew 9:18-22 (my thoughts) the woman with a bleeding condition, was healed because she believed…how much of our sin is metaphorically causing us to bleed, and not reach for the healer?
John 4:1-42 the woman at the well-(my thoughts) i don’t know what happened in her life that caused her to spiral from one man to another, but regardless of what someone else may have done to her, i am seeing today that her deception is not knowing who she truly is to her creator, and not know her true identitiy in Christ. This is my own issue as well somedays, and so many times have teached it, and so many times have fallen here.
Part of this journey is to know with out a doubt , not just words memorized, but rooted in the heart…my true identity in Christ, to know HIS love like never before, and to accept that love, because I am worth it to HIM…so are you…want to join me on this journey?

This is good, Darla. I especially like your choice of scriptures. Very perceptive, all of them. Thanks for sharing your heart.
Hello my dear friend. You are so lovely, and your thoughts are beautiful. I’m with ya! There is so much transcendency to the love of God. So much … it may in fact never end. 🙂 He loves us right through everything. And holding it all. In it all. Giving in it, through it, around it, and totally apart from it. There is nothing He cannot touch and turn to gold in our lives.
