Jesus showed His love for us when He made the ultimate sacrifice, giving up everything, all His glory, His life – to save and serve us.
Before He died for us, He gave up His deity. Are you kidding me?!? Who among you, even the most godly of men on this earth today, would give up an ultimate place of power, lay it down and become a lowly man that took on all sin, suffered and died for all of humanity?
Now that is LOVE!
Psychiatrist's and psychologist's offices are filled with broken people who suffer from both the effects and affects of the absence of love. Sadly too, whether you believe it or not, many Christians today also suffer from the lasting demonic dust of their former lives if they have not sought deliverance and been completely set free from the damage of lust, the counterfeit of love.

One of my favorite scriptures on the ways and means of God is from the book of Isaiah.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."- Isaiah 55:8-9
God knows timing like nobody's business. He is in the timing business, so to speak, and His plans and purposes are linked to his perfect timing.
As I reflect upon the perfect timing of being reunited with my Dad, I know without question, the perfection of God's timing.
In a world where Satan lives to deny all the benefit of having relationship with God, it's the eye of the needle that God works his greatest miracles through, in the battle for the human soul.
It's akin to how a Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers thread that needle as they throw a perfectly timed touchdown pass in the end zone.
The Almighty loves the end zone! He loves it because it means that you are at the "end" of yourself and ready for Him to work.
One day before May 3, 2006 I came to the end of myself and was in my "end zone". That is why there was no hesitation for me when I received word that my dad was alive and well and that I had an opportunity to reunite with him. Man, I was like one of those pro NFL receivers and I just started running as fast as I could, breaking through tackles and hurdling over obstacles to catch that touchdown pass! No one was going to beat me that day!

It's no secret, only a matter of the choice of venue at which you will spend your eternity.
Heaven or Hell. Pearly Gates or Lake of Fire. Many Mansions or the Abyss.
Even as I wrote, the inspired by the Holy Spirit, line above I was struck by how giving God is and how everything associated with Satan is not.
Pearly Gates...Many Mansions...and might I repeat from the Word, that the mansions have many rooms. Abundant love that gives reward and blessings juxtaposed to Hell, Lake of Fire, The Abyss.
When laid out in comparison, I don't know how anyone could choose Hell. Or, why they would choose to side with Satan over God.
God has loved and given to you since before you were born. Satan has hated and attempted to destroy you since the moment you were born.
God has told you the truth and given you free will. Satan has lied to you and held you captive and in bondage as a prisoner.
So...the scales, they are a bit unbalanced, no?

I so enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day, spent with my son and my dad! I wanted to get this post written before the day was out, but just could not get it done, due to having such a nice day! I hope all of you Mighty Godly Mom's out there enjoyed your day spent with those who love you, too!
So, on this day after Mother's Day, I stand back and marvel at God and His perfect Fathering. He truly is the Alpha and the Omega! Without His Fathering, us mom's would not know how to mother, for He put that which makes us "mother's" in us. That tenderness...that expandable heart... God made the heart of a mother breakable because it would need to be, to show a child how to love and care about someone other than him/herself. A mother shows a child how to love without reservation. A mother shows a child how to love selflessly, because her job is one of selflessness from the beginning. God designed mothers to be a vehicle of empathy, unconditional love and nurturing that every child needs to see themselves as worthy of love. I think one of the reasons mom's are the choice of God for birth, is because God made them to bare the burden of separation without the cessation of the bonds of love that a child needs until it's time for them to leave and sow their own harvest.
Mother's who are righteous of the Lord, being in Him and devoted to His leading, know that from the day their children are born, they are preparing them for separation from them. They have the strength, given to them by God, to endure the physical pain of child birth, the heart-break as their children learn love from her and the psychological pain of separation when their child leaves the nest.

A. REJOICE EVERMORE! You are in Christ, so what or who can come against you and win? Nothing and no one!
B. PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! If you do not already, BEGIN now! Your ways are not His ways and His ways are THE WAY and always better than your way, so you need to pray without ceasing, that His will be done in your life!
C. GIVE THANKS! The Lord deserves the glory, the praise and the THANKS for blessing you with His will concerning you!
