Worship Him with tears

What a fascinating day. Two things go through my mind. One is a reminder He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Jesus, my God, knew suffering greater than I have ever endured. The other is the song “Great I Am”. It goes through my head. This evening I sang it to my King with tears rolling down my cheeks because that is what I want. I want nothing but Him. He is my everything. I want to be close. Close to His side. I never want to leave.

I had an interesting day. I have stepped into a whole new level of freedom over the weekend. He has given me His peace. It was wild with emotion. I am beginning to embrace surrendering to Him. I want to give Him my everything. I do not need it anymore at all. He can have it. I only want Him. That is why I sang with tears running down my cheeks tonight – because I am having to give Him one more thing. One more treasured thing I had been withholding from sacrifice. But soon I will release it completely to Him.

I cannot tell you how much peace I had today. Peace, joy, forgiveness. I am so thankful He started my life on earth. As Beth Moore once said, He doesn’t want to just change my life; He wants to change my day.

I am still processing the sacrifice of my writing. I am processing how hard it will be to open myself up to so much attack. Especially when I will often be attacked by people who in theory believe like me. On the whole, where else would I go? He has the words of eternal life. Is He not the most incredible God you have ever witnessed?

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” – 1 Corinthians 2:9

At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?”

Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.” – John 6:66-69
