I confess, I have a list I haven’t written down. This list I know by heart and I don’t want to see it on paper. Until now. Fear, doubt, lack, unbelief, shame, embarrassment, guilt, verbal abuse, regret, unforgiveness, self-hatred, bitterness, resentment, fear and guilt. I must have picked up a few in bulk.
These items I have picked up at different “stores” over the years of my life. Even when I may be low or running out of any item on my list the “enemy store” seems to deliver. All of the items can be re-filled, re-stocked or re-refueled at a moment of a past memory.
I didn’t want to acknowledge this list and I didn’t want to see it written for viewing. My eyes or anyone else’s eyes to see.
Now, this list has seen the light. Majestically I see the hand of Jesus, shredding my list into oblivion. I see Jesus writing His list.
A list He writes on a blank sheet of paper every new morning.
Loved, loving, lovely, grace-filled, merciful, patient, kind, delightful, joy-filled, peaceful, fearless, forgiven, healed, mine, confident, wise.
He is still writing but I cannot see through the blurred vision of tears overflowing. All I need for today is written, and supplied just as needed. Tomorrow is a new day with a new list.
I now no longer carry around bags of stuff from the enemy store. I choose to go to my knees and ask my Father at His storehouse. With open hands, windows and doors, He fills me constantly with His blessings. I am overflowing with blessings with open heart, hands and love to give and share my list to those He places in my daily walk.
My Father, I say, you are truly amazing. Funny, He says, I was just thinking the same thing. My daughter, is truly amazing.
With pen in His hand, I see Him write, amazing is added to my list.
