Day 134

A Reminder

He was wounded for

our transgressions,

crushed for our iniquities,

by His wounds we are healed.

Isaiah 53:5

Do you understand what I have done for you?

John 13:12

<><><><><><><><><>

I have this piece of paper hanging on my wall and that is what is says. It’s not very big, but it is a little colorful. You know how as a kid in school, on worksheets, we would color in any open spaces? Yeah.. I did that on this piece of paper with different colored pencils.

To be honest, much of what is occupying the space on my wall.. Doesn’t actually make me think about what it says..

Not so good.

I have a note rom my friend. A sticky note that reads, “be intentional”. Little drawings.  A piece of box I cut out from some wheat thins that says Discover on it. Another note from my old room mate. A picture of a little boy in Africa. A paper detailing some missionaries living in Mexico. A painting that has the words “growth” and “thrive” painted in it.

There is a bunch on there..

And a good deal of it, doesn’t get used for the intended purpose.. It mostly just takes up wall space.. And that kind of bothers me. Some of this stuff I put up in order so that I would see it, and pray for whatever it may be!

But anyways.. The paper I told you about at first.. I do actually look at this one kind of a lot, and it actually is serving it’s original purpose! When I read that.. I can’t help but think about how He died for me.

It blows my mind every time I think about the fact that even if I was the only one on the earth, He still would have died so I could come and be with Him and the Father.

Do you understand what I have done for you?

No.

I don’t.

Honestly, I don’t understand at all why He would die for me.

Continually, God shows me His ultimate, all-consuming love for me and there is nothing I can do to be apart from that. Frankly, I don’t even want to be away from it! All I want to do is to rest in His love and let Him replenish the strength I lost while chasing after other, silly, worldly things.

And after all those screw-ups.. God still says, “I made you and you are beautiful. Gosh, I just love you so much my darling daughter! Come back to my arms, come back home”.

He make beautiful things, because He likes them.

He loves things that are beautiful, therefore, each and every one of us is a beautiful being. For any men.. You are a handsome being and God made you perfectly wonderful.

This is just one of those things I think about off and on, I guess..

It’s just crazy to think about really!!

Stay fresh, God bless
