Sometimes I hear scriptures like Psalm 91:4 that say “His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm.” and I think about how that must be a great place and I can’t wait to be in that place. Holy Spirit revealed my skewed perspective and I’ve realized that I am there. And Sis, if you are navigating loving Him according to the Word of God, in Christ Jesus... so are you.
As I look around my bedroom that I have slowly decorated and saturated in prayer, singing (on and off key ha!), crying, waiting repenting, soaking in God’s presence, I see how everything is a love letter to me. It beats flowers at my desk and sweet nothings in my ear, although those are quite nice. 😉 From the hummingbirds on my wall to the pink chair I prayed and searched for. The board with my one way ticket to New York from July 30, 2013, the letter from my Dance student, and my UF degree. The canvased paintings that I found at Marshall’s in very challenging seasons. The unicorn lamp that was a gift and the sheets from my granny that carry love and a legacy of care. It’s a collection of God’s love for my natural eye and for my spiritual eye.
I don’t have to wonder. Because I’m here. Here in His arms.
I am indeed wrapped in His arms where He is protecting me. My life’s purpose, our life’s purpose, is it to run deeper and deeper into the covering of His majesty. His arms of faithfulness are wrapped around us.
As I purpose and navigate towards knowing Him in a more intimate way I am finding more and more rest in knowing that He is my refuge. I am wrapped. I am covered. I am consumed.
You are wrapped.
You are covered.
You are consumed.
In Jesus’ name, Amen,
