Wiped out

I am exhausted in all ways.
Went this morning to hear a "speaker" out of morbid curiousity. Left my d and son sleeping and took the girls.
Pleasantly surpised that he was speaking on the finished work of Jesus! Quite encouraged. He also spoke about a "run-in" he had with a homosexual. I won't share the story right now, but basically the Lord showed him the love and lack of judgement He has for that fellow. That he had already died for him so how could we treat the fellow any less? My oh my did I cry when I heard that story. Oh, the love He has for "sinners". And oh how we have judged.

It wrecked me for the rest of the day.

I tell you, the love of God is the end of me!

I seriously have not been able to function properly for the rest of the day. Totally absentminded. and exhausted. Like I have undergone some sort of surgery.

All I can say is there is NOTHING like the LOVE of GOD. Nothing. Oh, that He would continue to open my heart with His heart and open my eyes with His eyes. . . There is nothing I need to ask him for other than this. Really, I have a roof over my head. I have clothes. I have food. I have people to love and people who love me. What more can I ask for other than for His heart?! Really! Everything else just pales in comparison. Nothing has any value unless I am consumed with His love while I journey on this planet.

So be it.


  1. "Yes!" she shouts in agreement. :)

    I have Him; I can be content in all circumstances.

  2. Wow!! Loved this! I had a similar experience coming back from a conference, testimonies told, God's love shared for hurting and needy people..........same deal, and I just felt almost exhausted and numb, I so wanted that Love to consume me, so that I too could shun the former ways of judgement and fear and love wholly and solely as He does........... took me awhile to let it sink in that I have that Love dwelling within me!!! Whoo!!

    Grace and Peace to you!!

  3. Thanks Lydia!

    I just ask Him to open my eyes more and more. It is the absolute best to see what He is in us eh!!
    It is still sinking in. . .

    Must go sleep now. Coughing children calling me. . .

  4. THE BOMB!!! I suspect it will continue to sink in deeper and deeper, as we go in deeper.........I suspect we could get sucked into His heart so deep and far and never see or sense the vastness of Him...........

    Hope your kiddies are well......!!!
