Excitement

Ephesians 3:12- "In Him and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence."

I don't know about you, but that verse makes me excited. And I'm not just talking about the "jitters in your stomach" excited. No, I'm talking about the "stand up in the middle of a crowded room and twirl" excited. I...one who deserves nothing but death...to be mutilated and destroyed. But no, I CAN APPROACH GOD through none other than Jesus Christ, the promised Redeemer. That's the first thing that excites me.

Second, living in the host of Christian fellowship is exciting. It is a RADICALLY different world, perspective, approach. Recently, I have sat in the presence of believers and you know what I realized? They are at PEACE! There is such incredible JOY that comes from that. Guys...this is exciting. I have begun to build a fellowship with girls who are yearning to know more about the God who calls them "daughter". We are not loved by God because we are valuable, no...we are valuble BECAUSE we are loved by God! Haha! Its wonderful! Excuse me for a moment while I go jump up and down!!

Ok, back. Third, God is placing people in my life that have ratified my understanding of gentleness and care. He is MOVING! I am so blessed...He knows His little girl.

So, I don't know about you, but I am excited. I am estatic! Why? Because I am nothing and can do nothing on my own...but am deemed worthy and can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength!! And yes, even approaching the throne of God with confidence...for I am redeemed by the Lamb.

Alleluia!!
