Kingdom Priorities

Uncategorized No Comments »

When people observe your life, most likely they can see what you value most. What you value is where your time and energy is invested. Tonight the Pastor said, “Whatever you don’t respect you will lose.” How very true! I would add what you don’t value you will lose as well. Sometimes we wonder, “Do I even matter to this person?” “On what level of caring do I qualify?” Sometimes a person has to back away to determine if they have worth in the eyes of another. Will this person seek me out if I create space? Will I ever again see myself reflected in their eyes of love? It’s funny how people have this look about themselves when they are enamored with another. How can one maintain these loving gazes? By loving Christ first, remembering every good and perfect gift comes from above. Prayerfully giving thanks and seeking His guidance. Third knowing what you value you will retain, when it’s shown by planting seeds of love.

The Love, who is my life…

From before the foundation of the world You knew me then

When I was knit in my mother’s womb, You knew every intricate detail of who I would become

When I was a little girl, pretending to be a bride, as I walked on the pink petaled grass through the flowering bushes, hearing the birds sing, smelling the sweetest of the air, You were there

Before I ever knew what I was created for You were wooing me, calling my very heart’s desires forth

“Be love, for You are loved by Me,” said the Creator. The One who made all that ever existed and will ever exist.

As You took the veil from my eyes and I could finally see, the One who bore my sin and shame, my Savior, You will ever remain.

You captured every tear, You wiped away every stain, You held me close when the world was far away.

You hold my hand, You watch the path before me, You gently warn as You guide and protect.

What touches me most is You were there all along, through it all and no matter how far I strayed, You remained, faithful, eternal, forever mine…

Precious Jesus Christ
