What an incredible honor this is!
The following is the link to Cee’s blog where I was gifted with this recognition.
A sincere thank you to Cee for all of the wisdom that I have been able to glean from her over the last year; as well as immense gratitude to all of you, readers.
You warm my heart more than I can ever hope to convey! =)
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is found here . The entries always inspire me!
Below is my entry for the week.
It was taken at a car show this past summer, in the small town that means so much to me.
Every time I see it, I want to run with the wind in my hair! =)
“Santa Claus for adults? That’s who you believe in?”
His tone was incredulous and sarcastic.
“Here I thought I was having an intelligent conversation…”
I chuckled at his wit, as my heart broke for his past experiences.
Jesus Christ has never claimed to be Santa Claus, and He certainly never promised an easy time for those who choose to make him the center of their lives.
The problem begins when we allow our preferences and comfort to dictate our theology.
I have spent years questioning God about the pain, grief and loss that I have experienced.
I failed to remember in those moments, what the truth is.
Persecuted? Do you feel abandoned?
El Roi means “The God who sees”.
He who made the world sees you, dear one.
You are dearly loved!
To take up refuge.
To withdraw from those around you, and seek refuge.
To burrow, or hide oneself away.
Sometimes, it feels safer to be hidden or burrowed away.
We were not created to hide in darkness.
If He meant us to dwell in darkness, He would never “shine His face on you”
When you feel overwhelmed,
remember that He who shines His face on you is
You are NOT alone.
Bask today in His Goodness, soak up His light.
Swim in the knowledge that you, beloved;
are dearly loved.
Thank God for it,
then go out in peace.
