The Positive...

It has been a while since I have posted here.  But today I listened to the news...I felt like crying.  So much evil, so much trouble, so much sadness...I had to remind myself once again that this world that God created was good...until sin messed it up.  I had to remind myself to look for that which was still good.
A friend of mine told me today the answer to that familiar question, "Is the glass half empty or half full?"  She said, "It is always full...maybe full of water, maybe full of air, maybe full of half water and half air...but always full." 
That is how a walk with Jesus is...it is always full.
So today...rejoicing in the fullness of the Lord...
I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit,  and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love,  and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
          Ephesians 3: 17-19

And as I walked outside I found evidence of His riches, evidence of the strength that He provides to my inner man, evidence of faith!  I found roots growing from strong trees and remembered that He makes me rooted and strong in Him.  I found the length and width and height and depth of the skies that He created...of the moon that He created...and I know that His love is bigger than that.  I found evidence that I do not know everything...LOL...I knew that already.  And that Jesus' love passes what I could possibly understand ...so I can just bask in His love.  I can be filled with His fullness...no matter what state the world is in, no matter what goes on around me, no matter what my situation is...
What peace!
