God Wants Us

He has everything, He made everything, He owns everything. Yet…

He still. wants. us.

He doesn’t need us, but He wants us.

If you have a relationship with God, thank Him for His loving desire to be in an intimate relationship with you. Thank Him that He loves and wants you so much that He endured abandonment, torture, sorrow, loneliness, pain, heartache, mockery, blasphemies, maliciousness, unjust treatment, wrongful murder and left His glory in heaven because…

H E . W A N T S . Y O U.

So if you ever feel unloved, alone, or like nobody cares, don’t. Because Someone greater than all others loves you, is with you, and cares.

What a loving, tender, caring God we have.✨🌸💓

{Psalm 27:10}
“Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.”

‭‭‭‭{Isaiah‬ ‭43:2-5‬}
Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.
For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
Others were given in exchange for you.
I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me.
You are honored, and I love you.
Do not be afraid, for I am with you.

Jesus is Unchanging


Let your heart rest in the truth that even in the midst of a changing world, we have an unchanging God. He is the solid rock we can put our hope in. When He says He will do it, He will most certainly do it. His love is sure and His grace is real. He doesn’t change His mind or reverse His plans. You can open your heart before Him and cling to Him with everything in you, knowing that He is a safe place. The only safe place.

When He says He’s forgiven you, He’s forgiven you. When He say He loves you, oh, He loves you. And that will never change. Because He never changes.

He is the only unchanging thing in this changing world.♥️

Worship Jesus Christ!

How does this beautiful God give us so much?! How does He even allow us to be intimate with Him and close to Him?! How does He let us know Him, experience His mercy, His tenderness, His lovingkindness, His salvation?! How does He even allow us the gift of loving Him?! The only reason we’re even able to love Him is because while we were  s t i l l  sinners, the Son of the living God died for us. He is so precious and incredible!

He deserves so much more than we are capable of giving Him, yet He accepts and delights in the worship of those who have been bought by His blood. Nothing could ever compare!

If you have been saved by Him, never take for granted that you are privileged and favoured to be allowed to enter into His throne room, experience His presence, and even call on His name. It’s a privilege beyond reason to be able to fall to our knees before Him and pour out our hearts to Him, crying “Abba! My Father!”

Never allow His goodness and grace that we undeservedly receive from Him become commonplace in your heart. You have everything in Him.

His love the greatest gift, and He has given it to those who place their hope and trust in Him.💞

‭‭{Ephesians‬ ‭1:3-14‬}
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.”

God is L O V E

And apart from Him there is no love at all – only a phony substituted version of love that will never satisfy our hearts and always leave us restless. But in God’s love, we find t r u e rest for our hearts. How can there be real love outside the God who created everything into existence? The One who actually stitched your heart together and is making it beat this very moment?

Pause and take a moment to feel your heart beat inside of your chest. He’s the One making it beat.

He‘s the One who defines love, and therefore there’s no possibility of finding love, real love, outside of Him.

If it isn’t His love, what is it?

It’s good emotion but is tainted with personal desire, lust, and selfish motive. Even in our best efforts our love is stained with sin.

But Jesus Christ showed us true, pure, real love in while we were yet sinners, He died for us in the greatest sacrifice that has ever touched man. And this great sacrifice is the free gift of salvation. Jesus took the penalty of your sin, if we accept Him as our Lord and ask forgiveness. He endured what we should have received from a righteous, just, holy God.

This God is true love, but in perfect unity He is also perfectly just and wrathful towards our sinful nature. But, if we turn to Him and cry out to Him for salvation and forgiveness, you will receive this beautiful gift.

Won’t you accept True Love today?

Once you taste the real thing, you’ll never settle for plastic.

{1 John 4:7}
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. He that loves not knows not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. This is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the sacrifice for our sins.

God Keeps All of His Promises

15107296_960059664100823_1817329472232136934_n.jpg

There is no way in the world that God would ever break His promises. He could never. In His divine holiness, His promises are attached to His own perfect nature. He is the only One in all our existence that will never break His promises to you or let you down. He has showed me this time after time after time since I became His. Like a lover wooing His bride with remarkable love, God draws us in and then He lavishes His grace, His love, His favour, and His promises on us. His gifts are nothing like the gifts we receive on earth – His gifts are so much better.

His gift is this: that He quenches the human soul’s inborn thirst for the living God.

He does this by condescending into humanity and sacrificing His life for us, so we can be close to Him, closer than we could ever imagine. He does this by letting us know Him personally, intimately. He does this by knowing US personally, intimately.

Those deep and piercing heart-pulling great love stories that bring us to tears and ache our hearts ain’t got nothing on the ultimate romance with Him. The deep-set natural gut-wrenching hunger for the perfect love found only in God is why those movies exist in the first place. We want perfect love, and it’s only found in Him.

In His perfect love, He always keeps His promises.🌸

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
‭‭{2 Peter‬ ‭1:3-4‬}

The Fire of God

14064227_888314511275339_7780168827774104204_n

God is a consuming fire. And once He sets a fire inside of a human’s heart, that fire will never cease. It’s a fire that never goes out. The fire of the Holy Spirit will burn in your heart for Him and only Him. You will be consumed by Him, be enthralled with Him, devoted to Him–as He is with you. Our minds will be fixated on Him, our hearts lovesick for Him, our souls longing for Him night and day, and night and day, night and day. It’s so good, and makes everything else in this world bland in comparison to Him – the King of Kings! A God so beautiful that if our natural eye saw Him for only a fraction of a second, we would go insane. Our human physical and mental state could not handle the fullness of the glory of God.

But once He sets a fire in your heart, you can experience Him and see Him with everything inside of you. He lets us know Him. He lets us love Him. He lets our souls move closer and closer into His deep warmth, into His gentle sweetness. He lets us find refuge in Him and He lets us find protection in Him. He lets us come into His Holy presence.

Once you taste these things in the one true God, you will never, ever, ever, ever stop wanting more of Him. His fire inside the human soul burns forever.🔥

Let it burn in you, and you will come alive. 


{Hebrews 12:29}
“for our God is a consuming fire.” 

{Matthew‬ ‭3:11‬}
“He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” ‭‭

{Song of Solomon 8:6-7}
“love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.”

Be Still and Know our Warrior

14051813_887254114714712_2893549542636814207_n

Be still and know that I am God.” {psalm 46:10}

These are God’s words to us. They’re so full of assurance and comfort. Of protection and leadership. This means to let your soul trust him. Soak each line in slowly:

be s t i l l 
and k n o w
that
H e  i s  G O D

To do this is to let go of trying and striving and KNOW that He is God and He WILL take care of you. You’re precious and a treasure in His sight and He overlooks nothing. It’s to know that He is invested in your life and nothing escapes Him. To know that your God is sovereign and in control. He fights for you and He delights in doing it.

To be still is to curl up into Him, letting your heart unravel before Him as you share with Him all of your concerns. But also being still in trusting that when you open your heart to Him and surrender yourself to Him, that He is God who is active in every aspect of your life and He is ordaining our steps. Even if at times things aren’t happening exactly the way we’d like or feels like He’s not doing much, being still and knowing that HE IS. He is. And that’s enough to know.

He wants you to keep trusting Him and know that He has plans for you. He wants you to keep turning to Him even when things don’t work out ideally in our minds. Being still is letting it fall into place without worrying, knowing your God goes before you. Letting God handle the situation and having peace about it.

{Exodus 14:14}
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

He is compassionate and also a warrior. He so delights in tenderly loving us and fiercely fighting for us.

I Just Want to be With Him

14021556_885658361540954_4214709855004362449_n

This world is beautiful, and I love living here. I love the life God gave me, and He satisfies my soul. But the closer I get to Him, the less appealing this world is. He makes everything else seem so dull in comparison. Just being in His presence hits me with such delight, joy, and a taste of Heaven; but all the while simultaneously experiencing a greater and deeper feeling of discontentedness in this world. Though He fully satisfies and fills me, there is this other part of me that becomes more and more dissatisfied and uncomfortable here. The more satisfied I am in Him, the less satisfying this world is. It’s a strong tension. Because I am both already a citizen of Heaven, but also living on earth. This world is not my home, and it only gets more and more apparent in my spirit.

This truth allows me to let everything go here, and give my whole self to God while I’m walking on this earth. I fully realize that I am here for Him and Him alone, for His purposes and His pleasure, and that I will one day see and experience all of the pleasures in eternity. This world may seem like it provides so much enticing gratification, so much of which seem difficult to let go of, especially for something we cannot tangibly grasp at this time. But just because we can’t see Him, doesn’t mean He’s not real. Nothing on earth could ever compare to the pleasures of being in God’s presence in paradise forever – the place He prepared for those who truly love Him.

If everyone had a momentary taste of what they could have in Heaven if they ask Jesus to be Lord over their life, every single person would let go of false treasures and fall to their knees before God and never be pulled by this world again. But that’s not what God wants. He wants our love and devotion because we want HIM and not a ticket to Heaven. We can’t see what God’s people are in for once they pass from this world to the next, but it will be unsurpassably beyond our wildest dreams. Thankfully, during my lifetime on earth, He allows me to escape into His arms.🌙💛

I just wanna be with Him.


{John 17:24}
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am”

{Philippians 3:20}
But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

{John 17:16-19
“They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.“

He Owns the Skies, Yet He Wants me

14088688_884991508274306_7598335271585425142_n

It sounds too good to be true. However, this is the purest truth that we can know. He is the majestic Creator full of divine splendour and love, full of beauty and grace, full of mercy and compassion. He’s the imminent, omnipresent, omnipotent God who, if we took a glimpse at Him with our naked eye, would be too much our minds to handle. We would go mad if we saw Him for just a fraction of a second.

Thankfully, in Christ, He cleansed us of all unrighteousness and made us holy and blameless in His sight. We’re His saints. His people. And as we are continuously growing and being sanctified here on earth, we will one day be fully in His presence, perfect and full of glory. We will be like Him, equipped to see His glory. In this fallen world, we’re not able to see Him.

But, thanks be to God, we can experience His everlasting full presence, closeness, communion, and relationship. Though we can’t see Him, we can see Him in the way He loves us. We can see Him in everything He made. Look at the skies, in a splendour so great it leaves us in awe. The One who owns the skies wants our hearts, and He will pursue us for our devotion. He will guide us and allure us to Himself, where He will tenderly bring us into oneness with Him. I am so thankful that he allows us to enter into an eternal, loving relationship with Him. He is sky-mazing.


{Hosea 2:14}
“But then I will win her back once again. I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.”

{1 John 3:2}
“We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is, in all His glory.” Yes, something that sounds too good to be true can indeed be the most piercing truth there is. Piercing like a double-edged sword

{Hebrews 4:12}
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power. It is sharper than any two-edged sword”

We’ll be swept away from this place one day by the most beautiful, loving, enchanting Being in existence.

Song of Songs 2:10
“Arise, my love, my fair one,
And come away.”

Our Thirst for God

14063989_883831341723656_5627061374244093867_n

There is a deep thirst in our soul that only God can quench. It is unquenchable by anything else.

We thirst for the true God. We thirst for the One who made our hearts. We thirst for our Creator, our Saviour, our everything. We thirst to be close to Him.

And until He quenches that thirst, we will only to continue to thirst.

Once you encounter the living God, and experience the Spirit of Jesus and His presence, no longer will you thirst. You will be drinking from the water of life. No longer will you be satisfied with anything lower than Him. All other things in this life becomes blurred like a wet black and white painting on a canvas, and ALL you can see is Him: clear, bright, shining, glorious.

As your eyes of love cut towards Him, He’s powerfully moved by you. He drinks in your love and feasts on your worship. He feels deeply for those who belong to Him. And His feelings are of intense love. Once you become a new creature, baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit, you will never again thirst for anything less than God Himself. Nothing else can or will ever satisfy! He is it. We receive from Him, and He receives from us. Separation ceased, we become one with our God in sweet everlasting relationship.

Only God can give us exactly what we need perfectly, and oh! How He does it so completely and with master skill.👑💕

{Psalm 42:2}
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.“

{John 4:14}
“But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) continually within him into eternal life.”

{Ephesians 2:4}
“But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and INTENSE love with which He loved us,”

{Zephaniah 3:17}
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

{Song of Solomon 6:5}
“Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.”
