I love Him. Not just the Hands that provide for me. Not just the Voice that guides me. Not just the Arms that calm me. I love HIM.
His character. WHO He is.
Because, He is holy, I want to be holy. Because, He is love, I want to be love. Because, He is light, I want to be light.
I want more of Him.
I don’t want more of the same. The same never moves you forward.
And, I’m learning that the more aware I become of Him moment by moment, the more my life changes. I think differently. I respond differently. I see people differently.
Because, as you become more aware of Him, the more you will look at people on the heart. You will see past their messiness. You will see past their emotional baggage. And, you will see the root of their pain. And, compassion will flow.
And, then, God just might use you to be the vessel from which He pours out His healing.
You don’t have to emotionally invest into all of the people around you. But, you sure better see every person as valuable. We are not FROM God.
We are OF God.
Read that again.
We are OF God.
To not see another’s worth is to not see the worth of our Creator.
And, how awesome that God pinched off a piece of Himself and placed it in each of us? How awesome that the more we get to know His character, the more we emanate that character?
And, yes, I realize how broken my thoughts seem on this post. This is one reason I have found it so difficult to write lately. He is breaking me, growing me, expanding me, and stretching me in ways that are shaking up my world. And, I don’t know how to communicate it well.
But, I will.
I know I will.
