A Different Kind of Post...

Good morning everybody! I know this is a little different kind of post.....but I want to do it anyway :) This morning while I've been spending time with the Love of my life, I wanted you all to know something.........Jesus is my Love. I'm not telling you this to brag or seem "super spiritual"... I'm telling you this because I have experienced life with Him. It is so so so good. Yea, there are hard days and many days you wonder if anything is going to turn out right. But, all of it is worth it. Seriously. I like writing little notes in my books or Bibles and dating them so that I can look back and remember them. Today I read on that said "Christ' anointing teaches you the TRUTH on everything you need to know about yourself and Him" (1 John 2:26). It's true. The more I spend time with Him....the more I dig into His word, the more I come to know the real Him and I get to see who I really am. And it's really good. I'm in love with this man Jesus of Nazareth, and He's In love with me. This is the reason for this post: for you to know that HE IS OUTRAGEOUSLY IN LOVE WITH YOU....HE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT YOU....HE CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT YOU. HE HAS ENGRAVED YOUR NAME ON THE PALM OF HIS HAND!(Isaiah 49)
I am praying for you today, that you will really grasp the reality of this life changing truth. Once you know how He feel's about you.....it will radically change you....and you'll never be the same again. It is wonderful to live life with Him. He has the absolute BEST for you. Don't settle for average. He is extravagant :). That's how He loves. I pray that you encounter the REAL, LOVING, GOOD Jesus today. I pray that you see Him smiling at you today....because He is.

"Know and believe the LOVE that God has for you today..." 1 John 4:16

It's rainy here is Monroe! I'm going to paint a desk and a few boards to take up to the Poet tomorrow. I'll post pictures later on.
Have an awesome day!

Blessed are those who chase after Me........for I am always chasing after them.
We will meet.
