Have you noticed that whenever you meet someone for the first time…a series of questions immediately follow? What do you do for a living? Single? Married? Children? Position in the marketplace? Yes! prying eyes want to know!!! Makes me smile! And then the hard questions arise: What do you stand for? What do you really believe? Who do you really love and trust? And…WHO DO YOU BELONG TO? Questions that ask us to lift our protective veils enabling others to embrace our lives – to become vunerable. Yes! To willingly open the doors of our Hearts allowing others to enter in to really see who sits on its Throne. The one who guides our steps…as we walk on our chosen life-paths here on earth. So in answers to your question…let me share my heart with you…
“He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. He’s the keeper of creation and the Creator of all. He’s the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all time. He always was, always is, always will be unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone. He was bruised but brought healing, He was pierced but eased pain, He was persecuted but brought freedom, He was dead and brings life. He has risen to bring power and He reigns to bring peace. He is our Promise Keeper and Light in the Darkness.
The world can’t understand Him, armies can’t defeat Him, schools can’t explain Him and leaders – they can’t ignore Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him, Nero couldn’t crush Him, the new age cannot replace Him and the Media cannot explain Him away. You remind yourself, that He is light, He is love, He is longevity and He is the Lord. He is goodness and kindness and faithfulness and He is God. He is holy and righteousness and powerful and pure. His ways are right, His word eternal, His will unchanging and His mind is on us. He’s our Savior, our guide, our peace, our joy, our comfort, our Lord and He rules our lives.
Yes! I serve Him because….His bond is love, His yoke is easy, His burden is light and His goal for us is abundant life. I choose to follow Him because He’s the wisdom of the wise, the power of the powerful, the Ancient of Days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of all leaders. His goal is a relationship with me and with us. He is the rock we can stand on and He is our firm Foundation. He will never leave us, never forsake us, never mislead us, and He will never forget us, never overlook us, and never cancel our appointment in his appointment book – and He is always on time.
When we fall He will lift us up. When we fail He will forgive us. When we’re weak He’s strong. When we’re lost He’s our way. When we’re afraid He’s our courage. When we stumble He will steady us. When we’re hurt He will heal us. When we’re broken He will mend us. When we’re blind He will lead us. When we’re hungry He will feed us. When we face trials of many kinds – He is with us! When we face persecution He shields us. When we face problems He will comfort us. When we face loss He will provide for us.
And when we face death He will carry us home into the Heavens to meet with Him – “Face to face!” He is everything, for everybody, everywhere, everytime, and in everyway! He is our Heavenly Father who loves us; our Savior and Shepherd – Jesus Christ – who calls us by name; and He is the Holy Spirit who shines His Light on the path before us. So Yes! In answer to your question…HE IS WHO I BELONG TO! How about you?”
From my heart….
Anointed, Transformed, & Redeemed
