All weekend, I’d been having such a hard time conveying in this space everything that was swirling around in my head and my heart, and no matter how many times I tried- it just was not coming out the way it sounded and felt to me from the inside. I reread it over and over and over, and each time it just felt like it was meant for an actual verbal conversation, but was not what was supposed to be shared on this space – at least, not in the struggling way in which I’d written it. So. I highlighted everything, moved it to my journal, and then asked Jesus what He might like for me to say, in place of it all, on this space. After praying and spending time with Him, Jesus laid only one thing on my heart:
And I cried. Because Jesus is so, so good. I am so grateful – so. grateful. – that Jesus is all that He is. I am so grateful for the love that Jesus has for every single person on this planet. I am so grateful that Jesus came onto this earth for us and with us, to give us a new command: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:34-35). I am so grateful that He always provides the answers when I ask.
Love one another.
