Jump Deeper In God’s Love In 2024…
Good morning beautiful people, good morning. Happy Sunday of our best year yet! I love to ponder things in life. Just to sit in the quietness of the morning and watch the branches sway back and forth as the snow blows around the yard is a sight to behold.
This morning, I was remembering a time as a young girl I would walk to the outdoor pool for swimming lessons. The slide on the deep side was something I conquered pretty easily, but oh, that diving board. It was when it was time to jump off that diving board, fear would overwhelm me, and I had an appointment called heading home. It was not until my adult life, I conquered that fear.
Do you know how many times I have had those appointments in life called heading home? Recently, I pondered that myself. When people yelled at me, mistreated me, stepped on me and did me wrong, I headed home. That happens to all of us on our journey called life, but with God’s grace and the decision to forgive, we can head back out again. There is nothing we can’t overcome with God.
I find myself kneeling before him more frequently, basking in his love and presence more than ever before and I am assured, he is with me. I am ready to dive in like never before this year. How about you? Ready? God is with us, and he is ready for us all to dive in with all we got this year. 1,2,3, jump! Jumping into deeper waters of his love this year.
Father, thank you for your love. Thank you that nothing can stop you from loving your people. You paid the price and your plan for our lives is what we desire.
Father, draw us closer in 2024 as we draw closer to you. Continue to show us how much you love us and may we believe it. Romans 8:38 tells us, for I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Father, you tell us to in Isaiah 50:7 Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s most beautiful people. Bask in his presence, saturate yourself with his love and jump in deep in 2024!
