Don’t You Know Me?

Today was a very interesting day. I listened to a lot of worship music, which was very lovely. I had a very interesting counseling session this afternoon. A wonderful meeting with a friend, who really said I need to quit interrupting so much. That’s obvious.

My roommate and I have now had a wonderful two hour chat involving all the deep and less deep areas of our lives.

The struggle of how far I am willing to heal and dedicate myself to helping others heal continues. I seem to have a penchant for crying lately. Life is really hard right now. Life has never been hard for me in this way before. I have always been a go-getter in many ways. I have run away from a lot of things in my life, but I do not usually just want to quit. It sucks.

People say I am awesome. I still do not believe them. I wonder what Jesus says.

I was just looking for a Bible verse to end. I went to John 14. Jesus asks Philip there, “Don’t you know me Philip, even after I have been among you for such a long time?” I feel like Philip. Do not I know Him? Even after He has been with me for such a long time? Why this cloud? Why this darkness? Ugh. I will praise Him in this storm. Yes, I will!

Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. John 14:9-14

I believe.
