Happy August, everyone! Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that the bond between one’s soul and our Lord, is truly a wondrous one. There is no glory on Earth that compares; nothing comes close.
That bond is a blessed one. We are blessed by, and through, that bond. When we cultivate our awareness of the Lord’s Presence in our lives, we begin to see more and more of His Presence in everything around us. Suddenly, you might feel His gentle touch in a breeze. You might hear His happy laughter in a gurgling brook. That awareness grows into a constant consciousness of the Lord, Himself, in our lives. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever experienced.
I think we often miss the mark on this because we’re afraid to let ourselves go. We hang on to reason and what we consider to be normal, or acceptable, etc. You won’t regret letting go of yourself and cultivating that awareness of His Presence in everything around you. I haven’t yet; and I doubt I ever will. I believe He’s quick to remind me that He’s there, whenever a couple of days go by that I kind of forget it. Yes, people called Jesus crazy; His own mother and brothers did. Most will call us crazy too. Don’t let that stop you.
I’ve chosen this song by Third Day to go with today’s message:
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
