Fill 'er Up Please.

Today, I am reading about God’s intimate awareness of the details of our lives. We think we are so complex, but he does not. He knows every detail—good or bad, relevant or irrelevant. He knows. And I read that it should not trouble us, but comfort us instead. If anyone else knew so many things about me, I would constantly worry what their opinion of me is. Has it changed—for the better, or for the worse? But I don’t have to do that with God. His Forgiveness is unchanging. I mean, it’s what He sent His son for—to sacrifice His Life so that we can have it…forever. This alone is reason enough to shout out loud in celebration. This alone is why I will not fear His awareness of the details of my life, but embrace it and thank Him for it. The passage continued with one resonating comparison: “As I fill you up with My Love, you become a reservoir of love, overflowing into the lives of other people.” That sounds good to me!

Dear Lord, please fill me up with your comforting presence and light so that others can see a glimpse of you through my actions and words. Help me to be aware of this throughout my day today. Thank You for Your Forgiveness of my imperfections and the comfort of knowing that You know all, and still love me—unconditionally. Guard my family, protect us from evil, and fill us with Your Presence today. Thank you, God.
