Because of God's Presence... Today Is Your Best Day

Today Is Your Best Day... Because of God's Presence

And He said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Then he said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here."  Exodus 33:14-15 NKJV

There is something better than having what is best in your day, and that is having the One who is the best. God is the best Person you can ever know, the best Friend you can ever trust, and the best Companion you can ever have. God's presence is sweet, enjoyable, and delightful.

God gives you what is best because He is the best. God gives the best kind of peace. Jesus said that He would give you His peace, not the peace that the world gives. The world's peace is fragile, uncertain, and easily toppled. God's peace can withstand any storm and difficulty of life. His peace brings the glorious assurance that all is well because you are His and He is yours.

God gives the best kind of joy. Jesus said He wanted our joy to be full. The world can only give momentary happiness based upon momentary pleasures, but God gives fullness of joy, a joy that runs deeper than any circumstance of life. God gives the best kind of love. His love is unconditional. God never says, "Give me a reason to love you." God loves you with a perfect love. He doesn't need a reason to love you because He is love, and He loves you with an everlasting love. Today, His heart of love calls out for you to love Him with all of your heart.

There is a reason why God calls out for you to love Him with all your heart. God loves you with a perfect love. His perfect love can only desire what is the highest, the greatest, and the absolute best for your life. If He would desire anything else for you, He would be saying that He would rather have you know and experience what is second best.

God commands you to love Him because He is the highest choice and the greatest good that you could ever choose. God could never say to you, "Love people more than Me; love doing good more than Me; love life more than Me; love ministry more than Me." All of these things, as good as they are in themselves, can be enemies of the best when they are in the wrong place in our lives.

Peace is yours today, joy is yours, love is yours, because God's presence is yours, and His presence means the very best.

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
