I had to find out what Jesus really meant to me, personally…not in some stupid angelic, fantastic song that I can’t even pronounce the words in, much less relate to.
This is what and who He is to me……He’s not my ability to breathe, He’s not my ability to take my next step, He’s not my ability to do good, He’s not my ability to be nice or to give…He isn’t even my ability to critically think or to have compassion, to be successful in this world or to make money. He is something much deeper. He is the one who gave me the ability to do all of those things in the beginning. He is the only One Who will always be there when I’m depressed, even when I won’t admit I am. He is the only One who can always legitimately say, “I know how you feel”. He is the only one who knows all of my idiosyncrasies and doesn’t ask me to change cause it’s “weird” or “uncool”. He is the only one that will never leave me nor forsake me, the only one who meets me when I try to hide from the rest of the world. He knows me. He’s my friend. Yes, He is the maker and creator of everything….but He also created me! He is Lord of the universe and judge of the nations…..but He’s my Dad! He is the “Alpha and Omega”, all powerful, all-knowing, ever present and the universe fits in the palm of His hand….but He walks with me at night, when I think about how great its gonna be to have kids and wonder what my “next step” is in life! He can be looked upon by no man, He knows how many hairs are on my head and what really happened to the dinosaurs, but He never leaves my side.
And for all of these reasons, I will never leave His!
