I understand

“I understand you far, far better than you understand yourself”*

What a blessing! What a promise!

I take immense comfort in that promise. My Jesus knows me.

Knows my failures.

Knows my weaknesses.

Knows my heart.

Knows my intentions.

Knows my abilities.

Knows my potential.

Knows His plans for me.

I am so so grateful for that! What a relief! To be known & loved just because.

To be able to let my guard down. To be honest, to take off the mask. Reveal the ugly. Make known the struggles.

I don’t know about you, but there are very few people that I share my ugly with. Even though I put it out there on this blog, I still hold back.

Fear of judgement.

Fear of disappointing friends & family.

But I let it all hang out, so to speak, with my Jesus.

Sometimes it even takes some time to be completely honest with myself & Him.

But He’s always there, lovingly waiting for me to get it right.

What a relief!

I pray you know this relief. To be loved, bumps & bruises & everything.

Can I encourage you today?

Spend some precious time with Him. Let the ugly out.

And relax in the peace that comes from being completely known.

You are so loved!

PS I sure am excited about going to church this morning, I pray you are too! I have been working in the church kitchen for the past 2 Sundays, helping get our meals together. My heart is looking forward to receiving some much need encouragement!
