Come to Me

Tonight I made soup with God.  Does that sound weird?  If you ask me I would say yes!  But I’ve been doing this devotional and the 7th day of the devotional asks me to spend time doing something with God.  Instead of trying to “go deep” or be get into holy mode, I asked God to make soup with me!  I’m not a pro in the kitchen, I wanted to make soup, and I could definitely use the Almighty’s help.  And guess what?  He showed up!  It was fun!  The Lord says “Come to me all you who are weary and I will give you rest.”  What I’m learning is that doesn’t just mean come to Me when you’re tired.  It means come to Me period.  He wants to be with me.  He likes me.   Why shouldn’t He like me – I’m His child!  He made me.  He’s a part of me.  He’s living inside of me.  I really appreciate the Great I Am.  He doesn’t need any reasons to show up.  This is the very nature of God.  He is our Provider.  He is the one who gives us life.  I get so caught up in thinking I’ve got to work on all of these things and then turn to God to pull me out of ruts, help me out in times of need.  Luckily I’m discovering that’s not true at all.  God just wants to shower me with love!  How cool is that.  I get to go to him in everything, including my joy, excitement, good times, fun times, and He wants it all!  He created me, so of course He wants to hear from me, and of course He wants to be a part of my life.  I’m really thankful that the lies I believed are being erased from my mind!  God doesn’t tell me a bunch of negative things and things that need improvement.  He tells me how worthy I am, beautiful, lovely, and showers affection on me!  I can lift my head up high in His acceptance of me!  Thank You Father!!!!! ❤

You are the One I praise. You say I’m beautifully made. Your thoughts are precious to Me More than the sand as far as the eye can see!

Love,
Laura
