Goodie goodie gumdrops!

Something that has challenged my thinking in the last wee while has been the idea of being fully fixed on God; staying firm in Jesus; standing on the Rock, Him! I mean this in the way of not being subject to man but rather only God!

In standing firm in our Father we begin to know who we are and where the truth lies. This keeps us from sinking or sliding to the side. We are able to feel the fullness of life and are able to have overwhelming peace in any situation. Oh the height and depth of mercy!

Not being afraid to stand up for ourselves, not being frightened of things to come. Knowing that He has it all sorted! Fully trusting Him; abiding in Him and His presence. Our God is anointed! He is seated on High! He is the MOST High! He cares for what happens to us, he loves us SO, so, so much! He not only loves us but he loves EVERYTHING about us! It’s like someone who loves goodie-goodie gumdrop ice cream! He loves the base flavour of it and he loves ALL the bits THROUGHOUT it! He is so FAITHFUL, he has always loved us, he does right NOW and he will for all the days and time to come! Woo!

Take the world BUT GIVE ME JESUS <3

Faithful – full of faith (being confident and trusting all the time (that He has a plan)). Never lacking; always near, always there.

Having faith in the process! My God is beauty and all that He sets His mind, heart, thoughts on are also beautiful! If we set our eyes on things above, everything in our lives will be beautiful also! We can’t help but be captivated by our loving Abba Father when our gaze is locked on him! The fruits of us placing our trust, thoughts and heart in HIM are great! We will never lack and we will constantly bring glory to Him! What an honour to be able to bring glory to God! He is so goof, yeah. Yeah goof! He is spicy! Life with him is never boring, and never will be! We will always have everything we need and more! He knows what’s best and his ways are always so much better than ours! Testimonies only show!

B/c of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:5

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ! Romans 10:17

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1

By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen. Hebrews 11:3
