Broken by Perfect Love

Thank You for tears of the years released
For knowledge within my gut
That when all the shaking uncertainty
Jesus alone would be left standing.

Praise You for Your grace,
Which enabled me to place,
The cutting edge of Your Word
To my infected, imperfect soul,
Not to run away with the job half done

For Your incredible love which saw beyond,
 Where the pieces of self, pride, lack of wisdom, unthinking comments and presumption lay
To the possibility of little girl innocence restored
Jesus gently pursued and worked on that task,
Setting me miraculously FREE.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. (NIV)

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (NIV)

You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness. (NIV)

He is ABLE, Jesus is SO faithful. All we need to do is ASK. We have not because we ask not so why not take time today and ASK. Do you need salvation? HE will meet you now. Do you need healing? Emotions, deliverance, physical... "by His stripes we are healed...." if that seems to be taking a long time ASK. Ask Him if this is His timing. ASK Him if "His grace is sufficient" in this case. ASK if HE is planning to heal. And then we need to LISTEN - oh, I definitely know it is hard to sit still as the tyranny of the urgent hollers so loudly. But sit we shall to hear that "still, small voice. I know because I definitely struggle also. Am headed right now to have my quiet time and try to SIT with open ears.
