Happy Valentine's Day! I hope your day is filled with extra special, lots and lots, heaps and mounds of love! I'm sure it is. I know there are oodles of people who love you (including me; I think you're fantastic!), I know you're the apple of God's eye and I know He's got great plans for you so, whether you get that box of chocolates or not, allow me to cover you in love one more time, "YOU ARE INFINITELY LOVED!" :)
Moving on, it's kind of cracking me up that this post is gonna' happen to hit on Valentine's Day but yah, it's all kinda' about dying. Dying to self, that is. And becoming alive in Christ.
In the last few days and weeks Holy Spirit has heightened my awareness of all the times I say, "I want this" or "I want that" and you know what, I've kind of become very uninterested in what I have to say. I really don't want to do what I want to do, I want to do what God wants me to do. (easier said than done but still very willing)
In fact today, it dawned on me that when "I" try to figure things out instead of trusting God and resting in His peace, "I" end up making a little mini-idol, false god out of myself. Ugh, I really don't want that.
Anyway, check out these pics - they might help describe what I mean.
