For The Beloved
09/04/2010 § 1 Comment
I hope you and your family had an amazing, life-changing time remembering the sufferings of our Lord and celebrating His glorious Resurrection!
As I look back on barely a week ago my reflections contain joyous fellowship, sweetness of family, filling foods, deep contemplation, great revelation and of course, chocolate.
Time will continue to tick by and life is returning to a routine. The seeds we planted are starting to sprout and my strawberry and rhubarb plants are flourishing. School is back in session with Algebra being figured and Biology tests being readied to take. We are looking forward to the weather becoming warmer, the birds singing stronger and the chill in the air subsiding.
I don’t want to forget the memories made with family and friends. I don’t want my life to be the same. I don’t want to forget the cross. I am purposing to remember to cherish these things more and more each day.
Every breath the Lord gives us is a gift. Every day we awake and realize we have another opportunity to give glory to Him should be seen as precious. I can only humbly bow at the feet of Jesus, pour myself out before Him. Here is where I ask for His love to consume me, His grace to cover me and His Spirit to guide me.
“O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me!
Underneath me, all around me, is the current of Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward to Thy glorious rest above!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!
How He watches o’er His loved ones, died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth, watcheth o’er them from the throne!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of every love the best!
‘Tis an ocean full of blessing, ’tis a haven giving rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus, ’tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to Thee!”
