I'm sitting in bed right now (yes, while you're on your way to work), watching our little princess sleep. Her little mouth is working as her pacifier moves up and down. She hasn't been feeling well for the past few days, so I decided to spend my off day with her at home. It suddenly dawns on me that this is how our Heavenly Father ministers His love to us when we are ill or sad. He drops everything to come and sit by bedside and bring us His calming comfort.
But if we think about it, He went a step further. He sent His one and only Son to earth so that He could die for us. Not so that we could live lives free of sickness and hurt, but so that we could live abundant lives - all the way into eternity! Now THAT'S what I all Crazy Love! He loves us truly, madly and oh so deeply. So no matter what we face, we must be fully convinced that God has our backs. I know for sure that the things that hurt me are on His radar. I know He heals all sickness. So I don't lose hope. And in those times that I feel my faith wobbling on shaky ground, I remember that He has already performed a miracle in Baby Mickaela's life! If He could revive her back to life after a severe allergic reaction, a tummy bug is a walk in the park for Him!
So this Jesus that I profess, He's real! He LIVES! If you don't have a relationship with Him, why not take Him up on His challenge? Allow Him to love you radically and passionately! He's already paid the price - in FULL.
