Deep Thoughts

These “deep thoughts” are not my own. They are those of Jack Handey,

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at that word itself. Mankind. Basically, it’s made up of two seperate words – ‘mank’ and ‘ind.’ What do these words mean? It’s a mystery, and that’s why so is mankind.”

Embrace the mystery.

Love notes

I love confirmations. I received precious confirmation of my thoughts from last evening, a little love note…

It may be a very bad thing that I needed God to die for me, but it is a wonderful thing that God thinks I’m worth dying for.

~Lewis Smedes

How greatly to be loved.

Lost and Found

For thus says the LORD GOD:

“Indeed I Myself will search for my sheep and seek them out.”

Ezekiel 34:11

Are you buried beneath the pile of rubble called shame? Are you hiding in the closet of fear? Are you drowning in the river of worthlessness? Maybe you’ve made a home in the pit of despair? Perhaps you’ve been raked over with leaves of ingratitude? It’s no matter, God is looking for you, seeking you, calling your precious name. He will bloody and blister his hands removing the rubble. He will blow down the closet door. He will swiftly carry you out of the raging waters. He’ll dig you out of the pit with His bare hands. He will surely pull you out! He’s already done more than that. He’s sent His Son to be executed on a cross, so that YOU could be set free, and His Son freely went to do so. Why? Because you are loved. Believe me when I say, He won’t stop searching until you’re found!

Father, I know firsthand your word is truth. You hunted me down like an avid hunter, shooting me with arrows of love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness. You carried me through the valleys, and led me to the top of the mountain where you tenderly cared for my wounds. How thankful I am! You are so good. I will never hide myself from you, I will instead awake every morning calling out Your name, and seeking You. I have no desire to take a single breath apart from you. I love and trust You. Thank you for this life. Amen.
