“Because you are precious in my eyes, and honoured, and I love you.”
In His presence is all the provision for our lives.
The tangled knot of our destiny is tied inside a relationship with Him.
Being consistently in that place is our life time pursuit.
It is transformational in our lives.
The ever present Jesus, whether we are mindful of it or not, delights in every moment of intimacy with Him.
It matters not whether we are doing the dishes at that moment or intentionally drawn aside into the secret place.
For busier people it is the widows mite principle of every little moment is as cherished by Him as the marathon some can afford.
For some it is messing up brings us back to the place and so we can count even our weakest, less proud of moments, as blessings!
His grace and His love pulls us back in many moments far more than what we sometimes perceive to be religious moments.
It is as if Gods says what I intend to do in your lives I will do anyway but it is His desire to have our hearts too.
The principle is still quality over quantity again as in the widow’s mite parable.
One look of our eye, one small move of devotion ravishes His heart.
This outweighs religious striving to please.
Create a space for Him and He will come.
Every tiny encounter is magnified through the lens of love.
Jesus sets us free from chains.
Free to go.
Free to be authentic me.
He loves each of us equally.
There has never been another me / you that is exciting in God’s heart.
The illustration shows the unravelling of our heart.
Magnified by God to be marvellously formed by His almighty hand.
He knows the beginning from the end and has written it in His book.

The spectrum the Light pushing back the darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it.”Psalm 139:1-6 ESV
“He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,”Deuteronomy 32:10-11 ESV
“Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings, from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.”Psalm 17:8-9 ESV
“Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.”Isaiah 43:4 ESV
