Jesus Doeth All Things Well

Oh, the fulness of His love. Heaven on Earth.

Where do I go from there? My precious Lord has blessed me SO SO much lately. I feel privileged! To belong to Him, to be able to say, I am my Beloved's, and He is mine, is the highest privilege on earth. Thank you, God, for being merciful to me and not leaving me where I was--guilty, dirty, so wretched. You took everything away from me that I held dear, and gave me Yourself. What a glorious Exchange. I have no words, but many tears of thanks.

It is said that those who are forgiven much, love much. What I have been forgiven! I won't even tell you, but it is MUCH. He continues to forebear, to be longsuffering, to mold me and make me more like Christ. "That I may know HIM, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death" is my life verse (Philippians 3:10).

Our dear pastor is preaching on The Road to Calvary, and I am learning more and more of His sufferings, and entering, in a small measure, into that fellowship. I read these verses that make me weep:

As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Called of God an high preiest after the order of Melchisedec. (Hebrews 5, 6-10.)

Glory to God in the highest! May my life bring glory to Him alone.
