Journal Entry March 15, 2014

*** In preparation for a project (book) I’m working on – I will be sharing journal entries every once in a while. The book will be on my walk of faith: from the fall, to my time on bended knees and the rise. The book will be filled with entries to tell the story, the way it was at the time it was unfolding and how God worked it all out ***

I can’t stop thinking about you. I love you already although I don’t know who you are.

I love you for the Godly man you are. For the compassion, love, patience, understanding you show to all you encounter. Your character of excellence makes me admire you so much. You possess integrity, honesty and loyalty. Forged under fire by our Savior – molded in His image. You are strong, brave and forgiving.

I know you’ll take the time to get to know me and bring the best out of me. It will be a pleasure to be by your side and serve God together. In you is the Glory of God.

I am looking forward to long, wonderful conversations full of sharing and learning. I cannot wait to be known by you – my heart, soul, mind, body and spirit.

Being with you will bring nothing but gratitude for the Lord and knowledge of Him. I do not place you above the Lord, but know you as an awesome blessing from Him. He loves me so much – He wants me to know His love through your love. Our love honors Him.

I don’t understand why we are still apart. I’m not sure if the Lord is working more things through you or if I am still not ready.

I have changed a lot. I’m tired of being alone. I know I need to turn you over to the Lord, accept you might never enter my life and be at peace and satisfied with all the Lord is – but I can’t let you go.

I want you in my life. I need your help. There is in me a better person, but she isn’t fully coming out.

I look not at those who reflect the bad, but desperately want to see those who shine the light of God.  They are the people I want in my life – the people I want surrounding me, so I know it’s possible. I can aspire. Jesus lives in me and I seek Him to shine through however, I normally come short. I know you are not perfect – but I also know you have Jesus shining through you. The more I come to know Jesus – the more I know who you are.

You will work it out of me – what most go. I cannot wait for you to enter my life.

=============================================

This entry was written over a year ago and within the past year; Jesus worked much of what I was seeking in that last paragraph in me – not through another, but personally with me. The more I know Jesus and His love for me, the greater my ability to love grows – the more He shines through.

God is always working things out of us!
