Relax….

The peacefulness of Jesus’ wonderful love brings contentment, like nothing else.

Having sweet communion (not the communion of grape juice – I’m talking about the fellowship type of communion that brings on a close relational friendship), brings joy… unspeakable joy – that deep down kinda joy that rises up within your soul.

I’ve learned that taking time in Jesus, with Jesus, and through Him,  talking to him about every aspect of my life, my concerns… the fun times, the sad times and everything in between, is exactly what He longs for from me (and you)! 

Stop and think about it, when you don’t spend time with those closest to you – what happens? There becomes a void. An emptiness that needs to be restored. It’s the same with Jesus, our intercessor before our Father God; the one who cares so incredibly for us. Oh, as each season  of my life goes by, I understand this very fact, more and more!

 John 15:13-15 (NLT)
13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me.

 
He brings more hope, more fulfillment, more of all the things we need. Tis SO sweet to trust in Jesus! Taking everything to him in conversation! Laying down our heart, mind and soul to Him, baring it all – and as these concerns are released,   he then fills  up our soul- he builds with strength!

Romans 15:13 (AMP)
13 May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.

 
I’m thinking of David – as he faced Goliath, lil young David, confident David – taking down that giant. Everyone laughed, poo pooed him. But one good sling shot with the rock – whoop – it was OVER! THAT’s the kind of building up  only God can do in our life! We have the same power within us – as we lay down our burdens and concerns to Him. (1 Samuel 17)

He longs to hear from you today… will you go to him – releasing all your fears, worries and burdens? Don’t forget to praise Him for the GOOD things he’s doing and done for you. You know how it feels to be lifted up  – should we treat Him any differently? Oh, praise Him! Release it all to Him! He is faithful to fill you up – brimming to overflowing joy  and peace!

John 15:13-15 (NLT)

13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told
you everything the Father told me.

Psalm 33:20-21
Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.

He builds up our hope within us, as we hope in Him; 
                Continue to Hope – Dream – Build  and  Seek !
                            He put those desires in you for GOOD –
