I’m SO In Love

My soul and my heart has never loved anything the way I love God. Every little thing about Him, from His love to His grace to His justice to His desires to His mercy to His tenderness to His sweetness and even in His wrath, He is so loveable! I will hold on to Him until my very last breath. I ache for Him so deeply, night and day.💗✨

{Song of Songs 3:4}
When I found Him whom my soul loves, I held on to Him and would not let Him go.

{Deuteronomy 6:5}
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

{Psalm 42:1-2}
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?

Where My Heart Is

Jesus, my beloved Jesus. My heart is with Him. He’s the last One I think about at night, night after night. He’s also my first waking thought in the morning, morning after morning. He is on my mind every waking moment and even in my sleep. He makes my days so satisfying and my sleep so sweet. I’m consumed by Him and I love Him more than anything and everything. Worthy is my God, of all of my love. 💗

No Devil in Hell…

I’m so in love with You. I’m owned by You and I don’t want anything else.♥️

‭‭{Ezekiel‬ ‭16:8‬}
And when I passed by again, I saw that you were old enough for love. So I wrapped My cloak around you to cover your nakedness and declared My marriage vows. I made a covenant with you, says the Sovereign Lord, and you became Mine.

If It Does Not Glorify Christ…

Brothers and sisters,
If we are behaving in ways, thinking certain thoughts, or entertaining things in our minds that are not glorifying or pleasing to Christ, we must run away from it. We must do everything we can to burn it off of us as silver is being purified in fire.

Remember, we’ve been bought by the blood of God Himself. We were bought with a very high price. Immeasurably and invaluably high. As His saints, we’re called out of this world and to live a life that brings God glory.

Sin, carnality, and worldliness in our lives does not bring God glory nor is pleasing to Him. It is not something we should take lightly. For satan does not own us any longer, we are owned by the Most Holy God. We are His slaves – willing slaves who desire to do whatever He wants. And we will desire it, if in fact we do love Him.

Jesus said, “if you love me, you’ll obey my commandments.” {John 14:15}

If we truly love Him, we will desire to flee from anything that is not pleasing to the One who saved us from hell.

Is there anything that God is pressing on your heart to remove?💎

He Calls Us Beautiful

It’s interesting that even as believers, we try to present ourselves a certain way to the world. We try to look as good as we can, putting makeup on, decorating ourselves with jewelry, getting our hair coloured, and the list goes on. What’s interesting is that we do this for people, yet the Creator of the the Heavens and Earth thinks we’re beautiful just in our natural skin. He made us and called it good.

Let’s get out there and be comfortable in our own skin! The skin that God gave us. The skin the King Himself says is beautiful. Why cover up and change what God says is good? He made our skin colour, eyes, our lips, and our hair a certain way, colour and texture. And it all testifies to His glory!

Let’s go against the rhythm of this world and let our true selves shine.

It’s so hard getting to this place of being comfortable in our own skin. For many girls, it will take lots of prayer and abiding in God. It will take strongholds being broken by the Holy Spirit. It will take healing. It will take asking God for help to see yourself the way He sees you, and finding your beauty and value and worth in Him.

He won’t disappoint.

You are beautiful. You are fearfully and wonderfully made by the King of Kings and Lord of lords.

Isn’t it amazing that the most beautiful Being in the entire universe thinks YOU are beautiful!?

Just you, nothing else, nothing extra, nothing changed.💎

{Psalm 45:10-11}
Listen, O royal daughter, take heart to what I say.
Forget your people and your family far away.
For your royal husband delights in Your beauty;
Honour Him, for He is your Lord.

The One Whom My Soul Loves

Your love! Your love! Oh, Your love.
Your love drives me crazy, but in the good kind of way.
Have you ever loved God so deeply that you feel fire in your lungs and every breath you take burns for Him?
Like your heart is hot and full and you will burst any minute because you can’t hold it all inside of you?
Like you feel you’re melting like hot lava at the drinking in of His words?
“I have loved you with an everlasting love.”
Oh yes, melting. Drinking. Drowning.
Have you ever felt so magnetized to Him that being pulled in any other direction that isn’t towards Him utterly ruins you?
So crazy in love that you would do anything for Him?
Anything.
A n y t h i n g.
A n-y-t-h-i-n-g.
That there just isn’t anything you wouldn’t do to please Him? To move Him? To make Him rejoice? To make His divine heart beat faster?
Oh! You are mine.
Your love, oh God, is experienced in my soul so profoundly that I feel at times I cannot carry on. That I desire death just so I can be with you. My love for You is so strong, so intense, that my life is nothing because it’s all for You.
Everything is nothing compared to You.
Oh! I am Yours.
My devotion is so strong that I can’t contain it. I can’t refrain it. I can’t hold it back. I can’t keep it in. I can’t box it up. I can’t shut it down. I can’t keep it quiet. Nor minimize it.
Oh! You are mine.
God, my beautiful God, You are glorious.
You are the epitome and source of pleasure. I could bathe in your pleasure forever and ever. And ever.
Oh! I am Yours.
How will I get through this life knowing that I’ll see Your face one day?
The most difficult struggle on Earth is tasting Heaven and not yet being with Him in it.
Oh God, you are God. The only God. The true God. The living God. The glorious God. You are God. My God.
My God, now and forever.
Oh! You are mine.
What an honour to know You.
To be tenderly intimate with You.
You’re so beyond my wildest dreams and oh God,
Do what you want with me here on this earth, and let it pass quickly because I want to be with You.
I want You.
My heart swells at my swirling, immersed, entrenched, never-ending deep thoughts of you.
Oh! I am Yours.
My heart is owned by You.
You own my heart. All of it.
I love You, my love.
Never let me forget Your love.
Hold me in Your arms forever.
💗

The Words of Christ

The very words of Jesus.

F u l l of wisdom.

F u l l of truth.

F u l l of grace.

His words fill our souls and calms our restless hearts and convicts us. His words are alive, they are powerful, and they are eternal.

How blessed we are to have a God so gracious and intimate that He would actually dwell with us humans. So tender and compassionate that He would smile at us, embrace us, walk with us,  t a l k  to us.

This God! The majestic God of heaven did this–for us!

How  l o v e l y  is He.

How  w o r t h y  of praise.

Let’s meditate on His words.♥️

Glorify God!

🙌🏻 Let’s glorify Him. As believers, everything we do should be with the mind and heart to glorify God. Eating, drinking, sleeping, serving, loving, talking, working, playing–we should always keep this in the forefront of our mind: that as His redeemed people, glorifying God is our purpose on earth. And an astounding privilege.

The smallest things in our lives can be done to the glory of God. Even things that seem like it would never glorify Him, such as paying bills or creating a budget. Or putting the shopping cart back in the shopping cart area. Or being on time. Or choosing silence over saying something unpleasant. Or choosing an apple over junk food. Or keeping our home clean and in order. Or washing our bodies and taking care of ourselves. Yes, everyday, small, mundane things can be done to the glory of God!

As believers in Jesus Christ, we are living sacrifices poured out as an offering to Him. And the beautiful thing is, He accepts it with gladness.

Yes, the holy, unworldly, glorious God who created the heavens and earth accepts us as a living sacrifice unto Him – a pleasing aroma that is constantly reaching to His heart in Heaven.

Let’s marvel at the amazing truth that God uses us as vessels for His glory here on earth. We are able to glorify the God of Heaven. That’s a high position and not to be taken lightly.

Let’s glorify our Father in all we do!

‭‭{Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬}
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

{Zephaniah 3:17}
The LORD thy God is in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

{Revelation 8:5}
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
