the thief and the giver…


my children ran wild and free, laughter and joy sang from their souls…

i rocked this new little baby, new to my arms, but familiar somehow to my heart.

i breathed out thanks to my Sovereign and Gracious God because…

“the thief came only to steal and kill and destroy…”

i still felt the raw pain of the sun leaving,

no laughter, only grief…no singing, but crying…

my arms had held fear, children in turmoil and uncertainty…

i cried out in desperation for rescue…

      “BUT I HAVE COME THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE…”

I sat breathing, delighting, enjoying, cherishing and thanking my Father for this moment where He blew through-like a fresh wind.

The thief has made me learn to fight.  To pray harder.  To depend more.  To take thoughts captive.  To look UP.

But Jesus has taught me how to love and how to LIVE.  Fully.  Gratefully.  Abundantly.

  “AND HAVE LIFE ABUNDANTLY.”
