|11 days that will transform you life
A pilgrimage on dusty roads through spectacular landscapes. The sun paints artistic shades on sandstone mountainsides. The wind carries a strange freshness in the air. The Maluti mountains boast their splendour. The African soil under your feet reminds of a journey deep within.
Let your heart and mind find its resting place in God. Read more
After a church meeting yesterday, I walked back and talked to God about understanding Him as a Father to me.
This week I was reflecting on biblical references of how much God actually cares for us and loves us.
As I walked, praying, I felt to seek Him in deeper ways and also to explore different ways to respond to the Father’s love for me.
I realised that I was awe-struck by His love for me, but not so awe-struck by my love for Him!
If He then loves me so much! Why does my love for Him seem so small? So very tiny compared to His love for me?
He knows me as so intimately because He knitted me together in my mother’s womb. He knows me outwardly – how many fingers, arms, legs, toes, and even hair I have. He is the One who searches my heart and knows my every thought.
Yet I know so little of Him
Even Moses, who spoke to God face to face desired to know Him more deeply and more intimately.
Inside me, a deeper prayer was starting to take shape. If you feel in any way as I do, pray with me.
Father God, I come into your holy presence now
in boldness I come into Your very throne room
to stand here as Your child … as Your “artwork –
a work of your hands”
… a physical expression of Your love
Lord God, as I discover the ways You love me
and the ways You search into my heart and into my life:
how You have plans for me
and how You follow me to see how I am getting along in choosing those things you have in mind for me
how you think about me so much (countless thoughts – as the sand on the seashore)
Father God as I ponder on these loving caring and compassionate feelings You have for me, I realise I stand broken before You. I am broken by the inability of loving You back as much as You love me.
I know that through Jesus, I can be victorious
but I stand convicted to respond MORE to Your love
Father, I pray that You will do what You need to do to show me Your way.
