More than a List

 

I have always prayed. But too often I have taken my “lists of needs and wants” to the Father as if He is the owner of a store in which all my lists can be fulfilled.

But I believe, in my humble opinion, that it is about communication with the Father. The God of the Universe. Of course I believe in prayer…but the way I pray has changed accordingly. I have always talked to Jesus as if He was right with me (which He was) but I had to learn to listen more…to trust Him in all things. 

We are playing a new song at the radio station and the chorus has really touched my heart. It is sang by Natalie Grant and written by Becca and Samuel Mizell.

“Help me want the Healer, more than the healing.
Help me want the Savior more than the saving.
Help me want the Giver more than the giving.
Help me want you Jesus more than anything.”

Oh Lord….hear my cry. Remind me that it is about you Jesus,, your love and not what you can do for me. Enough was done on the cross.

I want the Healer, the Savior, the Giver….Jesus.

The Millinery Shop

The Millinery Shop

Although I never got to see it, my grandmother owned a millinery shop. Oh how I would have loved to seen all those hats and accessories!

Each one different than the other, no one just the same. Each one designed and made with love and devotion. I bet there was one that would even fit my very large head!

I guess that is like each one of us. Designed with love and devotion. Neither of us is the same. We all have different DNA, fingerprints, personality traits, hair color, height, weight…..you get the idea.

And each one of us is loved with a “reckless raging fury that they call the love of God.” (Rich Mullins’ The Love of God)

You may not feel that right now. That love may have seemed to alluded you, truly has not. It is there for your acceptance. For you to embrace. For you to wear….He loves you so much my friend.

Wear that hat, trust me, it fits perfectly.

Wake Up

It is the day after Christmas. The “sugar hangover” may be a part of this morning, so bring on the coffee.

The tree may still be up, the unwrapped presents are put up or ready for exchange.

Some will have to go back to work, others will be off for a few more days. Some will get on the road to travel, some even to vacation.

But no matter what this day brings….

Even though the actual “holiday” is over…..

God still sent His son as a baby to be born in a manger…so that He could understand what it was like to be human.

This new baby….a life to be lived.

For us…

So that we might have life.

Pretty amazing actually.

I want to remember that….. every. single. morning.
