That's a wrap

This here post will bring a wrap to our Relationship Series. Some of you are dancing and celebrating right now thinking...'woo-hoo' cause it sure was mega hard to endure...and I would have to agree with you!

I have thought for quite awhile on how to wrap up this series...and I want to leave you with some encouraging thoughts...where I find myself placing my hope.

I believe in an Almighty Creator who created us, His people, to be in relationship with Him. And when we do this one thing...all else will fall into His design!

I can hear my own heart...and maybe yours is crying out to...'that's the one thing I can't seem to get right!' 'I can't get this whole being in relationship with God thing right!'

Friends....can I share with you what I hear Him whispering to us...

"Quit trying to get it all right and just allow Me, your Creator to love you!"

Once we allow His love to cover us, wrap us, and live in it each moment...then we will be 'doing it'....we will be in relationship with Him. There isn't a program, system, book, study, or religion that will work this out for us. Only the love of our Creator will make our relationship with Him right!

I would love to come to the end of this series saying that all of my relationships are better and more perfect...I think some of them are, but honestly the one that truly has become more intimate is the one with my Jesus! He has peeled off so many layers of pride, mis-truths, and has reminded me that I live for Him and Him alone!

I have spent the past two weeks in what feels like a cave. Hiding out and asking God a lotta of questions. Good news...He has been faithful...I know its only in His character to be...but it still knocks my socks off! He has revealed even more of Himself and has fed me some very large portions of eternal food! My prayer is that I not waste any, but truly chew them thoroughly and allow them to nourish me. I don't want one second of this 'cave time' to be wasted!

There are alot of challenges and new things in these upcoming weeks for me. And I know that the investment Jesus has made in me will help me to face them. I know my knees will be shaking, and tears will be shed, and I might even fall down...but I know that I will face each one of these challenges and new things wrapped in His love!

So friends...'that's a wrap' to our Relationship Series! May you know that your Creator loves you. May you allow His love to wrap you up and may you live in it each moment.

Remember...its NOT our job to create relationships...its His!

I love you and am praying and knowing God will continue to bless you!

Love ya!

This is the crux of what God created us for. Praise God for this lesson.

Created for His pleasure ... to enjoy Him enjoying us enjoy Him.

As you said ... 'quit trying to get it right'. That is easy when we remember we are RESPONDING to His relationship to us and who He is; not the other way around.

Love your 'flat out crazy about Him' heart. Lookin forward to seeing where you go next in your walk .. err ... response.

Well, that's a wrap...or is it really just the beginning?

You, through the Lord, have set tools before us to use as we move forward in our relationship journey.

Thank you for your prayers, time spent in God's Word and at His feet on behalf of those of us you don't even know.

You have been a blessing. My prayer is that God bless you abundantly both in your relationships and the plans He has placed before you.

Trust Him!

Blessings to you,
Cindy

You have opened up a whole lot of areas in my life. I'm back to being a Mom to my two grown daughters. They both said they still needed me, so they will hear from me a little more often just to let them know I love them and am praying for them. They don't share a lot with me but part of that is my own fault. They don't want me to worry about them - but what are Mom's for? We should care enough to let them know that more than once a year on their birthdays.

Thanks for all your prayers and your teaching. May God bless you as He leads you into other areas. You definitely have a calling upon your life by our Heavenly Father.
Luv u,
AliceE.

I so often find myself trying to do the relationship thing with God right. Argh...usually failing as soon as I start. I loved your point...that's His job to make it right. :) Thanks!

Nicole said...

Love you! Keeping loving Him, therefore it will never end, but only begin. That's a rap. I guess. It just came to me. :) I'm also pretty tired, so don't take anything too much to heart that I just typed. Of course, unlness it's good. :) NIghty night!

The Jesus in you, Nichole, has opened up my eyes WIDE! THANK YOU, and THANK YOU again! His love is wrapped around me and I am enjoying every single moment in HIM, these days! He has been with me this summer as I daily ask Him, "How can I nurture the relationships with my extended family members?" He has helped me and guided me along, as I seek to see "them" through His eyes. He is daily showing me how to love on them, like He would. He's walking right along beside and I can feel Him. And, by asking him 'how,' and by Him showing me how, I'm believing in Him and putting trust in Him for everything. My relationship is so much closer. It's all His doings. Why? Why is He so good? Because He is so full of LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not comprehendable! Indescribable! AWESOME. MY God!

Love you sweet Nichole! Lori -AZ

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
