I went to a funeral yesterday.
The man that died loved me dearly and unconditionally.
I was precious to him.
He thought I was beautiful on the inside and out.
He adored me and cherished me and all he could see in me was good, even when I was unlovable and doubted his love for me.
So, when he died, my heart broke. I lost my best friend and the lover of my soul.
My heart ached as I thought about his death, especially since he died for me.
I don’t deserve his love, yet he has extended it to me. That type of love is hard to comprehend and I’ll never fully grasp it. And because I desire to please him, I want to do what he has asked of me, which is to follow and obey Him.
“If you love me, you will obey what I command. John 14:15Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. Matthew 16:24 (NLT)
He’s a great man and a magnificent man. In fact, he is so powerful that he raised himself from the dead!
I can’t help but adore him.
I can’t help but want to follow him.
I can’t help but want to do all that he has asked me to do because I am fully devoted to him. Did you know this Man has me wrapped around His little finger? Yeah, He does, and I’m not afraid to admit it.
He has my heart and………..
HE COMPLETES ME! 🙂
Friend, Jesus Christ paid a great price for you and I. The least we can do while living on this earth is give Him our utmost devotion and take what He did for us seriously.
Live a poured out life for Christ,
