Last night, I watched short videos of some of my grandkids. As I watched, this huge smile came across my face. I felt this overwhelming joy. I could not erase the big Cheshire grin.
This is how the LORD loves me. I need to keep it that simple. Sometimes I make it so complicated!
1 John 3 says: See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"
It really is that simple, yet huge!! I am a child of GOD! HE desires a walk-in-hand, lift-me-up, one-on-one relationship with "just me." I don't have to perform in perfection. I don't have to be a particular way. GOD looks at me the way I look at my grandkids, swelling with love! Wow!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
