Before I was really good friends with God and began studying the bible for myself, I pictured God in a completely different way than I do now. I looked at him as a distant, rule-maker, a disciplinarian… I didn’t spend much time with Him then…I mean you know… who wants to hang out with the principle of your school right?? YIKES!
But He kept drawing me in…I’d talk to someone who hung out a lot with God and was drawn to the Spirit I saw in them.
After getting to know Him more through the love story He wrote to us ( some people call it the Bible hehe) I began to see God in a whole different way…. When God says DO NOT …He’s saying DO NOT hurt yourself I love you. This behavior hurts you spiritually…or hurts other people …so don’t do it sweet girl.
God is literally rejoicing over you …delighting over you …right now …this minute…every minute.
I love hanging out with God now…He’s my BFF, my biggest fan, I take after Him, He’s all for me…when He speaks to me I listen, I can’t wait to hear what He has to say. Cuz He LOVES ME!
It’s fun to think about the picture that the scripture below paints….
He is shouting over you… He’s sooooo crazy bout ya!! LIKE WHOOOHOOOOOOOOO I LOVE THIS GIRL!!!!! She’s soooo stinkin’ AWESOME!!!!! a million smiley face emojis… Thats my girl right there!! Isn’t she pretty??? Isn’t she great???
Yep, love to hang out with God now. LOVE IT. Feeling bad about you?? Hang out a little while with your biggest fan EVER.
Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring you quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy.”
