TRUTH IS A PERSON
"Truth is a Person... not just a theology, the study of God, but a theocracy - being ruled by God... there are no decisions to make, but only instructions to obey. Jesus Christ Himself is all we need to know about God, & He is all we need to know about man... He became Man as God intended man to be. He behaved as God intended man to behave... When Jesus said, 'I am the way,' He was telling us, 'I am how you can BECOME a Christian, for I died for you.' When He said, 'I am the life,' He was telling us, 'I am how you can BE the Christian you have become.' Jesus is the Truth about the Way & the Truth about the Life." (John 14:6)
I was up @ 3:30 because my body was so achy. But again, God's timing & message are perfect, continuing to build security in my soul, one Truth brick at a time, although the Truth is already mine in the totality of Christ's life indwelling me. Going through the biopsy was a proven faith walk. I don't remember much of the procedure except the initial "pinch" & then the blur of a lost 60 minutes. I was @ peace - before, during, & now, after.
God is plowing up my heart for eternal weight of glory. I feel it. I see it but am speechless before Him. Sometimes it's hard to breathe in the mystery of it all. We look to many false gods. We strive to complete meaningless dead works. We are so busy we run over hearts. We are often unaware that our pride stops obedience, until the struggle of consequences screams for attention. I am SO THANKFUL, SO PRIVILEGED, that He NEVER gives up on His own- "if we have opted out of Adam & into Christ to be restored to function by allowing Him to live through us."
New mercies every morning are there for the taking. So He wakes me up early enough to enjoy the singing birds in the peacefulness of the dark. No one ever cared for me, like Jesus. [quotations from day 22 THE INDWELLING LIFE OF CHRIST (I. Thomas) ] I was thinking of you & pray you are depending on His adequacy.
