SAY WHAT? “I AM SO EXCITED”
The look in this little guy’s eyes is one of sheer exuberance. As I gaze, I am drawn into the expectation of whatever is bringing him joy and I so want to be a part of it. Contagious. The aura that he is exuding is contagious. Innocent, pure, and contagious. He looks like a great ball of love. That even if you were angry or disheartened, looking at him sends a signal to your brain that releases those very weary feelings. Go ahead smile…you know you want to.
The Lord have appeared of old unto me, saying, yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: Therefore, with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Jeremiah 31:3
I am drawn to you. Is this not appropriate? How many times have you felt angry, despondent, or simply empty? Straightforwardly, needing a reason to smile, hope and believe again. A reason to be strengthened about life – your life and the promises over your life. To be excited. It is at these times that, (if you are like me) reaching for the Word of God that is on the coffee table in front of you, seems so far away. I know it is the right thing not to wallow in those feelings. Still, I can feel the cloak of the attacks beginning to overtake me and yet, I cannot seem to shake it. I wish my hands were long enough to reach my Bible for healing and here again – Elastagirl did not share those powers. Oh, but ABBA did. I’m drawn to him..…it is contagious.
Thy word have I hid in my heart that I will not sin against thee -Psalm 119:11
What I cannot reach for He, Abba-Father, brings all that I need back to my remembrance. He reminds me of who I am (I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:14) He restores my strength by showing me that (“Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world” – 1John 4:b)He is the epitome of Power. Power when He speaks, power when he moves - (God has spoken once, twice have I heard this that power belongs to God – Psalm 62:11).
Suddenly, looking inward at what He is saying to me about me, I smile. My countenance begins to change, and the weight of life begins to lift. No, I didn’t gain the strength of the Incredibles, but I am strengthened. Like looking in the face of the handsome boy, when we look into The Word of God, GOD begins to strengthen our inward parts and our spirit is revived. We now see hope where hope was not seen before, AND it is contagious. Everyone looking at you may now have the opportunity to be lifted because of your contagious, revived strength. Aren’t you feeling lighter and lighter knowing that what you could not do for yourself, there is a brother or sister that you may glean from? More importantly, there is a loving, powerful God that will fill your empty and restore your joy? Contagious is the love of God – hovering over us showing us that when we can’t – He can! Say What? Say – ABBA is still loving on you in such a time like these and I Am So Excited!
