2.13.2021 – He reminds me…

God is faithful to remind me…

To remind me of His love

To remind me of His truth

To remind me, of the deepest things that are on my heart—perhaps even things that have been hidden from my sight, unrealized thus far…

…but now realized, revealed… and remembered

Recovered.

Reminded of the way it was, of the way it is, of the way it always has been and will be.

He reminds me… of what He designed into me, before the foundations of the earth—His beautiful heart for me and for my life.

Oh listen for Him!

And wait… 🍃

“How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart all the day? How long will my enemy be exalted over me? But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, because He has dealt bountifully with me.” —Psalm 13:1-2, 5-6

Like a treasure, once lost, but now found

He’s worth the wait, you know...

On the glorious splendor of Your majesty
And on Your wonderful works, I will meditate.”—Psalm 145:5

What if… a big part of this “journey of life” is about recovering our memory, the realization and awareness of who God really created and designed us to be?

…And what He has prepared and planned for us to step into?

Once we know who we really are in Him…

And I wonder…

If as children…

We’re more in tune with who we really are…

And then as we begin to grow up into the world, we can forget…

We can lose sight.

The things we know can fade away…

A few months ago I came across an old home video when I was around 4 or 5 years old, and in the video I was running and jumping and dancing around, completely uninhibited…

And these songs about heaven and about Jesus were just flowing from my heart, bursting out into my little place of the world…

And as I was watching this video, and listening to the song that I had on my heart as a little girl—the words that were coming out of my mouth from my heart made me realize…

…that I knew exactly who I was at that time, as a little child…

“…When am I gonna find what You’re doing in heaven? When am I gonna find out, what’s in heaven now? Jesus, when am I gonna see You too?”

“…When I’m in heaven, I’ll be Your friend… every time, I’ll be Your favorite helper…I’ll be Your helper forever!”

How did I know this, so deeply within my heart as a little child?

I wonder if perhaps it was still so fresh on my mind, and so real in my heart.

…And then I lost my sight for a little while…for a time, I forgot who I was, and I forgot what a dear friend Jesus is to me.

I forgot that He was there with me…

But over the last few years, God has been bringing me back into the realization, the rediscovery… of who I’ve been created to be…

…as He reminds me.

And then as He reminds me, He also reveals to me,

…”newly realized things” that He has hidden into His design of me—hidden things that were just waiting to be revealed and realized… there all along, but to be revealed…

…for such a time as this. 💖🌈☀️

“I never knew that was there in me! (Or I forgot that was there in me!) But God, You did. You knew it all along…”

Thank You, Father. 💝
