New day greetings to you, precious family! This morning I have been enjoying the loving sweet presence of Jesus.
How dear He is and what a great heart of love He has for us all! He is the God of the Universe, the greatest being there is and from the distance it is from the heavenly realms to us on earth, He saw us from afar and it strikes me this morning that He was not content with that separation from us. He wanted to be just as close to us as He could possibly get to us. He wanted to be in our hearts!
That is truly an honor when someone cares enough about you to desire a heart to heart relationship with you. So precious! When Jesus shed His blood on the cross for us, His Word says “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.”
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
He has chosen us and considered us close enough to share His life and His heart with us thru our faith in Him. Not only that, but He desires to hear our hearts and cares about what is on our hearts. How special is that! Oh, my Jesus. I am so thankful this day to have such a close loving relationship with Him. What a great gift in all our lives to have someone as close as He with which we can be ourselves and know that we are loved unconditionally, totally accepted, totally forgiven and downright cherished. Doesn’t it just bless your heart to know that you have been chosen because you are loved! Oh, I’m a gal enjoying the gift of Him close to my heart today. As this song says here, indeed we have a great friend in Jesus! Enjoying His love with you all today ~ Smiling and happy and sooo glad you are here with me!!! 🙂
