There’s only one place where I truly feel safe: in the presence of Jesus.
Yes, my boyfriend makes me feel safe, but I’m sure he can agree that only in the presence of Jesus is where we find true safety.
I feel at peace and at ease. I want to spend the rest of eternity in that presence with Him and I’m grateful that God gave us the opportunity to obtain that through His son, Jesus. I am not perfect and at times I beat myself up for that and feeling like I’m so undeserving of God’s love. Well, the truth is I am undeserving of God’s love. I did and can do absolutely nothing to be worthy of what Christ did for us. I can’t do anything to repay what was done for me, but that doesn’t stop Him from loving me and pulling me closer to Him. It’s because of who He is — not because of anything I’ve done.
I anticipate the day of His coming and the many days after that that I can be held in His arms, thanking Him over and over again in person for what He’s done for me. For the life He saved not just once but NUMEROUS times. I almost ended my own life and yet God saved me just in time. He reminded me that He had something greater and something better planned for me — even though it would be another year before I truly realized that and gave my life to Him. He was still SO faithful, even when I was deliberately sinning and rationalizing my sin.
There is NO one else like You.
There is no one in this universe like You.
