Good morning all-
I hope you are waking up to the sounds of birds calling and the sun rising from the East. That's how I woke up this morning and it brings joy to my heart just listening to God's creatures as they cry out in praise to Him.
I was blessed enough to see Beth Moore last weekend and to see someone very real who is doing God's work with a passion that inspires. My daughter-in-law bought her new book, which I will finish today called Audacious and you should definitely get a copy. Its inspiring me to step out in faith, live for the moment and to watch and anticipate the adventures ahead.
During the conference, Beth went through six things we should really be thinking about and I have. I've actually read my notes every day since the conference. The one that stands in my mind is making Jesus my supreme romance. Now that takes energy and an open heart, don't you agree? I'm not sure I've ever had a supreme romance, not even with my husband. I'm not the most open person in the world and I can't say I'm always willing to let the flood gates of my heart open wide. I like to control and keep things close to my breast and yet, I feel called to let all of that go and really experience a romance with Jesus. Now, I've always loved Him but I've never thought of Him as being my unseen supreme romance. Doesn't it make you think about your relationship with Him? It did for me. Beth has put this in her heart and Jesus is her supreme romance. The emotion that washed over her on stage was witnessed by thousands as she grabbed for her Kleenex and wiped away the tears. They weren't tears of sorrow, they were tears of joy. She loves Jesus and there's nothing wrong with that.
I'm working on opening my heart that wide. I have always been in love with Jesus. He saved me during a time in my life no one else wanted to. He believed in me when I didn't and He pursued me when I walked away. He hasn't left me because I like to be safe or because I'm not the most fun. He doesn't make fun of me because I can't joke or because I'm so serious. He loves me for who I am and that's what's going to make it easier to make Him my supreme romance. He is worthy.
I hope you take time to read Beth's book. It's an easy read full of information that will impact your life. If you learn nothing else from this post, remember this, God is your unseen supreme romance. He's waiting and He's worth it. Give Him your whole heart and He will give you His love. Ask and you shall receive!
