It’s OK for it to be intense between God and me … I mean He’s Light. There’s no darkness in Him. How can that not be intense?! Yet so easy and wonderful to be with. I wanna learn to be the same way … pure, real, truthful, but easy to be around … like Jesus.
Jesus resumed talking to the people, BUT NOW TENDERLY. “The Father has given me all these things to do and say. This is a unique Father-Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. But I’m not keeping it to myself; I’m ready to go over it line by line with anyone willing to listen.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and YOU’LL LEARN TO LIVE FREELY AND LIGHTLY.” MATTHEW 11:25-30 MSG
I’m saying, “Lord Jesus, I need You every minute, hour and day to be teaching me how to live life free and light so people see You in me … Not me doin’ and sayin’ what I think needs to be said and done, but only saying what I hear You say and doin’ what I see You do … just like You lived out here on earth. I know nothin’ is impossible with You, so I’m taking this. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive as You’ve so Mercifully forgiven me. Even when I stumble in what I do or say You keep me from that hard fall … You so tenderly turn things around. Thank You. All in Jesus name.”
PSALMS 37:24 Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. NLT
