I wanted to share this music with you this morning….
As I sat down with the Lord this morning, and I put on this music, I felt such a tender closeness with Him—a sense of “togetherness” with Him…a warmth, a comfort, a peace…. a sense of relief.
I’m so thankful to be able to come near to Him, to sit with Him, to dwell with Him in His presence.
It didn’t used to be that way. ??
For many years I was utterly tormented with a fear that began to distort my perception of who God really is… as the fear grew and grew, I couldn’t see how wonderful my Heavenly Father is, I couldn’t see how much He loved and cherished me.
And I lived in so much torment because I knew, it wasn’t supposed to be this way, and yet… here I was living it….. and I didn’t know how to get myself out of it. I felt trapped.
“This one belongs to Me. This one, I love dearly. And I’m going to clear it all up, I’m going to tear down all that keeps this one from having closeness with Me. Just watch and see…”
And somehow, He did. ?✍?
I’m so thankful that He breaks through all the things in our lives that keep us from really knowing Him, from really enjoying closeness with Him as our Heavenly Father…
…all the things that keep us from having that beautiful, tender, closeness with Him, the things that keep us from knowing the beauty of His heart.
How He loves to tear these things down and lead us into the VICTORY He has promised.
Thank You, Father. ? I’m so thankful. I’m so thankful that You are a God of hope! I’m so thankful and relieved that You finish what You start in us. We may want to give up sometimes, we may lose hope at times, but You always plan on seeing us through!
