Thinking about the journey today.
How fortunate we are to have found him.
To have bowed the knee,
Surrendered the soul,
And said “Yes” when He called.
There are dots on the timeline of my life when I searched for him.
There are dots on the timeline of my life when I ran from him.
There is a BC and AD, (Before Christ and After Discovery) mark on my 18th year.
And then marks on the line showing failures, victories, and breakthroughs.
With him as companion.
But I want one thing more.
I want a bolder timeline.
Representing a strong life
With many little marks
Souls that found him
After stopping on their own journey
To ask me for directions.
There are always areas
That need improvement.
True intimacy with the living God
Should be top priority.
Then intimacy with his creation
As we tweak the thorns off of our stems.
We want to be inhaled,
By God and Man;
Therefore, the thorns must go,
So that no one bleeds
As a result of getting close enough
Enjoy your celebration today,
Wherever you are,
Whomever you are with,
Or not with.
He who matters most is there.
And what more can we ask, really?
Than to be connected to the One
Who made us
And loved us
Then saved us for one.
