I’m always pleasantly profound-ed and exhilarated when reading my Bible and words pop! or a phrase shooting like a bullet, bypasses my mind, penetrates, and lodges in my core! The bullet … like some condensed explosive matter shot deep inside me only to detonate at some later inexplicable time.
This morning, reading along in LUKE 22:44 NLT … “He (Jesus) prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood.” … it happened so fast and hit with such force … now, it’s echoing over and over.
I’m saying, “Your Word means everything to me. I treasure these things that come alive by Your Word and Your Spirit in me. I’m letting You know that I’m paying attention; ready, willing and expecting these words to do something in me … whatever Your design and intent is. I take this. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive. I love You with all my being, and I will to love others as You love me. All in Jesus name.”
