The picture presented here of Jesus is so beautiful. Protective. Passionate. Loving.
It struck me. That is what I've done to Jesus. Over and over, He has called to me. Called me to come to Him. Come to Him and lay down my burdens, cares, sins and worries. Called me to lay down ALL that separates me from Him.
But, I'm afraid! I'm afraid of losing something that I THINK I want or need. He sees the whole picture, from start to finish. He created me. He made me. He knows every hair on my head. He wants ONLY good for me. He wants ONLY the very best. He knows that when He is glorified, and I'm resting in Him, I can experience the "fullness of joy" that He has promised. (Psalms 16:11)
