Gotta take this lovin’ thing to a whole new level! Gotta streeeeeeeeetch!!!!
Shades of grey. Listening to someone sharing something the other day I became acutely aware that I was seeing them in only shades of grey and brown … Abruptly … intercepting thought … how is God seeing them? … “holy and blameless” leapt into my mind cause that’s the way I’m believing Daddy God sees me. I immediately injected these thoughts and it was glaringly exposed how jaded my thinking was … not unforgiveness or bad thoughts, just not God thoughts. The person wasn’t bright and shiny like I know God sees me. Another thought tumbled in … if I spent the same time and energy I confess and ponder these “holy and blameless. forgiven and oh, so loved” thoughts over myself on others as they weave in and out of my day … how much more advanced I would be in this LOVE.
I’m saying, “I’m doing this! I’m doing this right now! I’m transposing God’s thoughts of others into my thoughts. Whether away or face to face, I deliberately, on purpose, aggressively interject God’s thoughts. I refuse to allow my thoughts to be dominated by anyone or anything but LOVE! In Jesus name SO BE IT!!!!”
