Have You Ever?

Have you ever been so in love with Jesus that your entire being, who you are and how you are, suddenly makes sense? Have you ever felt His love for you so deep in your heart that not having compassion and love for yourself, would break His heart?
Have you ever noticed how all the stars at night and all the tree frogs singing, are love notes from God? That these beautiful, simple things are all you truly need? Diamonds, TVs, fancy clothes suddenly mean nothing, because quite simply, you want to spend your days pleasing God instead of yourself!
Is it this realization that you come to when you know God is so in you, that compassion fills your veins and you weep at another human being in pain? Is this how Jesus touches you? I know He touches us all differently, but how can people, non-believers  not feel it and see? How do we truly show them the truth? How do we truly let them know that Jesus is the core of the universe, that the world spins off center if we aren’t in tune to His calling, and that He loves us more deeply then we could ever comprehend and He gives us grace? Even the truth is in the word, but all we are and all we have is because of Him. It’s something that simply is hard to explain in words!
I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task The Lord Jesus Christ has given me – the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:24
