"Lavished Upon!!" - 08/12/16 - Jeremiah 30-31

"God told them, "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!" (31:3)

No matter how we may worry.  stew.  attempt control. 
No matter how much we may plan.  prepare.  budget. 
The reality is most everything in life is completely out of our hands. 

So why not put it into His?
There are times when life is thrown a loop.  When what we have planned out, just doesn't happen.  Or ABBA changes up our path in getting there.  Only He is able to see the whole paradigm.  Only He knows what is ahead and being His Beloved, He has laid out the best plan for His. 

We have to have Faith.  We have to have Trust.  We have to submit and follow His lead.  Accept His time.  His way. 

satan wants nothing more than for us to focus on the things trying to tear down, causing us to doubt.  he wants to rip our eyes off our ABBA and become consumed by the worry, envy, jealousy, bitterness, anger (just to name a few).  To miss out on the innumerable blessings ABBA continually rains down upon us, as we walk through this world.

 I find the times I take my eyes off of my ABBA, are the times I am blind to the blessings surrounding me. If I allow myself, I could let all the rains of life ruin the parade of living He has placed me in.

There is so much more to this life. 

All the moments of  "sitting on pins and needles" is such a waste of time. How often am I this way in my living life?  Becoming  anxious about the unknown outcomes, the "what if's", and take my focus off of Him? Of  doubting His being in complete and total control? How many moments do I waste, instead of enjoying the moment which only comes once? 

I mean - really - all we need to know is His reminder, over and over, in His Word -
"God told them, "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect LOVE, LOVE, and more LOVE!"
I find I don't want to miss, "Seeing what great LOVE The Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"(I John 3:1)
