“For The Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.” – Psalm 149:4
I was maybe 10 years old when the teaching of my parents transformed into truth for me. “I got saved”, or accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and professed that I have come to believe in Him. I believe He was who the bible said He was and that because He is, I am. Baptism quickly followed, and communion became a sanctified practice. Today, the more I grow in the Lord, the more profound his revelations are (and I realize I’ve known nothing lol), and the more I come to realize that salvation isn’t a one time thing. I don’t know about you, but I want more of Him, I want to be made whole, I want to be healed, I want to be right in His sight, I want Him to look at me and not help but crack a smile and shake his head like, “That’s my girl!”. I want to be faithful unto Him.
Salvation in my life is on repeat. Every single time I experience God’s love through His ever so sufficient grace, boom…I’m saved yet, again! Every single time I repent, boom, there goes my favorite jam! (ha!) Every single time he corrects, chastens, and loves me, BOOM! It’s easier to love someone who in your eyes doesn’t deserve it when you think about how God doesn’t withhold a drop of his love for you. There’s nothing that we could do or not do to make him stop. Gosh, that’s amazing! Hellooo..is this mic on? lol
My heart is full of gratitude. I never knew there was a love like this before. I can honestly say that I know, that I know, that I know, that Jesus’ blood was shed for ME. I know, that I know, that I know, that Jesus is mine. I am here for His delight and find delight in that truth! What an honor to be called His. What an honor to work for Him. What an honor to perform on a daily basis, worshipping in all we do. What an honor!
“My beloved is mine, and I am His…” – Song of Songs 2:16
I heard this beautiful song at church last week and my spirit can’t stop singing and dancing to it. I’ve been singing it in the shower, the hallways, the car, you name it. I thought I’d share it with you today. Have a fabulous weekend enjoying Him!
