‘Oh, the deep deep love of Jesus, vast unmeasured, boundless free…’
You may know this old hymn, the lyrics are beautiful. When I was first ‘saved’, I was absolutely flooded with the Love, Peace, Comfort and joy of God’s Spirit. It cost God so much, yet takes so little for us to repent, to ask forgiveness, and to call out to Him in Faith. This Love was the most amazing feeling I have ever experienced, yet I also experienced a spiritual battle with darkness. We will have trouble in this fallen world, where there is evil, and a lot of things seem to not make sense, yet God Is real and His Love is real….and He will work everything out despite the mess and chaos of a fallen and broken world.
I have been drawing near to God recently, and I have asked Him that I don’t want to just ‘go through the motions’ of singing songs, or professing faith without that deep closeness with Him. Despite my worries, fears, sin and imperfection, He has been answering, and renewing me from within. God allowed a season of feeling ‘distant’ from Him and being faced with questions, and I have called out to Him and found Him Real and Faithful.
Despite the trouble we face on this earth, and from our very own natures, there is nothing that compares with that Real, Tangible, sweet comfort and presence of God’s Spirit within us, holding us. There Is no purer love than this. It is not something that can be imagined, thought up or dreamt of – you need to come into that relationship of Love yourself, being made a new creation, and experiencing the reality of His Sweet Presence for yourself. There is nothing that can compare. I hope and pray that He will draw you to repentance so that you can ask Him into your life, to be forgiven and experience this everlasting, deep, pure love for yourself. x
He Is Real. His Love Is Real. Ask Him. ❤

“Being made a new creation, and experiencing the reality of His Sweet Presence for yourself.”
This is said so wisely and true! Nothing here in this place we now struggle to live and carry on will hold true or last, nothing here will last, but, to experience this one truth within is what it’s all about; this is our actual salvation! Seek it now through Jesus Christ!
Allow me to repeat what we both have said and experienced both heart and soul! I too am humbled to have met you here this way and read your so eloquent and heartfelt words of love and appreciation for all God has put before us, and allows us to use our own gifts to seek greater understanding of His plan for each of us as we, yes at times struggle, but along the way are able to see it’s never in vein; because He knows everything about each of us down to the last atom, and with Him leading the way no mountain is too high to climb nor ocean so vast that we aren’t able to cross it!
The 23rd Psalm
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
The meaning and depth of the thoughts expressed in these words, to me can only come from a divine power that knows us better than we know ourselves far beyond any mere human capacity; and which reaches out into our very hearts and souls to comfort us, giving inner strength if we will accept it, so that we can face any and all challenges ahead; because we can rest assured we are never alone. He our God will never allow us to be forsaken or lost if we continue to abide in Him for our needs, following and trusting Him who gives us all, He who has so much more to give beyond our wildest imaginations.
Thank you and God bless you!
