How do you feel when you know that Jesus is looking at you?
Do you feel unsettled, or possibly ashamed? Maybe you feel something much more comforting such as peace.
Sometimes I feel a peace knowing that Jesus sees my pain or frustrations, and even my joy. I feel a bond when my heart breaks with His over injustice or hate.
When I am not walking upright, I feel the need to shy away from His presence. Knowing that I am not perfect is not enough to keep my head high, feeling lowly as dirt is where my sin places me.
Shame leads me to question myself. Why do I keep falling for lies or moments to tap out of reality? These things never lead to goodness or ease of pain.
I am grateful for Jesus and that I have a living God with relatable attributes. He knows me better than I know myself. I will forever worship and love Him. Without Him, I would be lost and drown in the lies that hold me back.I am grateful for Jesus and that I have a living God with relatable attributes. Click To Tweet
Honoring Him is something that is a priority, and walking in a way of worthiness is something to strive for. I don’t want to feel shy because of my dark inner workings that the Lord can see right through. The peace that I should have in relationship with Jesus seems less attainable when I cannot get past my own selfishness of inner satisfaction.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace Numbers 6:26
I pray that the Lord take hold of my selfish ways. I ask that He shows me how to break the bonds of all of my sins. These things do not glorify Him or even raise me up. I trust in His faithfulness to me and I want to turn it all back to Him.
I am so grateful that I am made clean and can start anew each and every morning. In Jesus, we are a fully forgiven and saved child.
