altogether Beautiful...

That is what my Jesus is to me. His voice is sweet, and His form is lovely. The most amazing, incomprehensible thing, though, is that I am altogether Beautiful to Him.

Name:

I am a daughter of the King. I am a friend of sinners. I am confident that nothing shall separate me from the love of God. I am seeking a heart after God's own heart. I am righteous in Jesus Christ, apart from the works of the law. I am not ashamed of the Gospel.

6:40 am and I want to go back to sleep

Well it's 20 minutes until I have to leave for work and I'm sitting on the couch with un-brushed hair, no make=up, and in winter pj's. I don't want to get up or go to work. I saw Narnia last night with several friends (great people, btw) and I truly enjoyed it. I shall have to pour more thought into it later. The Lion of Judah. One of my favorite names of God, esp. when I was a little girl. Somehow it was a wonderful picture of the Strength and Fearsomness and Beauty and Nobiblity and Control and, again, the sheer Strength and Power of God. So it was an amazing picture to see, not a precious lamb laying down its life, but the LION, Laying Aside his strength, actually truly Maintaing his strength and power, but submitting himself to the abuse of the week for the sake of the boy. Wow. That is truly amazing. Now I see how, even if/ when I am in the Right in a situation, I can show meekness and lay down my opinion or rights- even if it means that I am thought to have given up or yielded because I am weak. Christ did it, why can't I?

lol. Well thanks for that mental image:)

But anyway... your later comments remind me of the verse... the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

haha, well I'm sitting here again with the same look except the hair is in a pony-tail. And it's night-time. :-)

Yes, the spirit is willing, and yes, Most unfortunately, the flesh is weak. But most gladly, therefore, will I rather Rejoice in my infirmities, for His strength is made Perfect in my weakness.

Completely Undeserving of Him,
Shannon
