I returned from Tanzania yesterday (Tues) after many hours of travel and traffic. Although my body was weary and tired, my soul was refreshed and renewed! I had the privilege of spending time with 22 lovely women who love Christ more than anything. Although I was sent to remind them of Christ’s love for THEM, they taught ME the depth, the height, the length, the width, of Christ’s love just by virtue of their sincere presence and authenticity.
I read something that really resonated with me while I was there. I just want to share with you. Maybe it is something you need to be reminded of today. This is part of one anothering!
Remember the Perfect One
Remember, His burden is light.
He is the Lord of Rest, the Bridegroom, longing for His Bride.
He is not a taskmaster, demanding more widgets.
He is a loving Husband, pursuing his favourite girl.
He is a tender Father, splashing in the ocean with His children.
He is a Warrior, protecting His people.
He is a Comforter who really sees.
He knows you are human, and He’s glad about it.
He knows you can’t do it all, and He’s okay with it.
He is jealous for you, longing for your whole heart.
He wants your gaze fixed on Him, not the mirage.
I am praying for you sisters! May you know today how deep the Father’s love for us.
Only ever, all for Him,
