Advent: Day 15 – Who has your heart?

How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions?

Idols, we all have them if we are not intentional in keeping them out of our heart. if we do not s..l..o..w….if we do not still….if we do not wait. We will strive and perform for the idol. Our hearts know what they are. We may not have called it an “ IDOL” yet but we know deep in if we are dancing to the tune of another…

if we are running hard to please..

if we are cutting self down for affection, for perfection..

if we are kneeling before Facebook attention or Pinterest comparison

striving …bleeding for love.

Only ONE has bleed for you and He says COME and REST

He let His blood run so you could stop running – Ann Voskamp

ADVENT – the gift has come – O Come let us adore Him

I feel great thankfulness and joy, relief and peace knowing His great love is complete for me and I don’t have to work for it. I simply can come and rest, sit with Him as Mary did at His feet listening to His heart beat for me. I can know I am fully loved and totally accepted. I am FULL for He is mine. He did it all for me. I don’t have run and toil, work and drive, perform or dance to make Him love me. He simply does No other has come to bleed and die so I could sit and be with them. I cast down all that exalt and haunt for attention. All that is turning my eyes and ears. All that is turning my heart and soul. All that is turning my mind and will to bow down before anything that is not His throne.

JESUS KING OF ALL

O come let us adore HIM
O come let us adore HIM

O come let us adore HIM

CHRIST THE LORD

Journal this or at least ponder and bring your thoughts to God:

How does is feel to know you don’t have to earn His love? What makes our God so much better than Idols?

All is grace,
