What is joy?
What is peace?
What is to rejoice?
What is to grieve?
November 15, 2013- It was a still and serene encounter when someone you just knew a minute’s count gave you a heartfelt hug and shed innocent laments on your broad shoulder. Seeing that grateful and teary glance.
Time told you it halted for three seconds. Though cold and insensitive you were, arms wrapped the lass back, and just let the moment be.
Grace witnessed. Hearts melted.
Rejoice! The whole being was just singing along. Six month long of wandering was scrapped. Doubts were, then, washed away.
Souls shouted out of silence, of tears and of joy. No longer hardening that stubborn and selfish heart. Instead, praying for that moment to prolong and not to end. And just let the heavens pour down its mercy.
That burden you were wanting to cast down. That glimpse of His glory you kept on seeking for. That drought in your soul you’ve been asking to be filled, be answered, be set free. That desire for a revival. That passion to be refueled. That prayer. That vision. That faith. That covenant.
And He didn’t fail.
Around those wide open arms, that longing ended. At the sound of those sobs, a melody rang. And in the midst of that clouded mind, the Word came into life. And the Life spoke life.
God loves you.
When God says He will provide, He will.
When God says He is hope, He is.
When God says He is God, He was, is and will always be.
Such love this world can never bring, Jesus gave. Such pain the darkness offers, Jesus overcome. Great I AM is He. Whom shall we fear?
Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; remain in my love. If you obey my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete.
-John 15:9-11 (NET)
Joy inexplicable awaits!
If I could be lost, let it be in in His love.
Obey. Remain in His love. Then, my joy will be complete.
