I was thinking of how when I finished a major update to a website I'm working on, that once I was done, I also went to move it from one web host to another. It seemed such a simple thing, but the changes it made were profound...and I had to go back to the source of it all, where the name had been originally come from. Once there I had to find the one place to go to change the settings that I wanted, and most times they're not obvious, for they don't really want you to take the file elsewhere.
It made me think of myself before I met Jesus, and He brought me you.... I was like a site hosted on the wrong server; things looked fine on the outside, but not so when you looked within, the space was too small, the data transfer was too slow, my life was so far from what I wanted it to be. The changes that I tried to make were all doomed to failure from the start, for I tried with my own power to make things better, but my efforts didn't move me from where I was, and all my plans eventually came apart.
But when I finally asked Jesus to come in my heart to forgive and heal, what a change that turned out to be...I had not understood how completely He would change things.... not just the outside appearance but the inside me.
It was as if Jesus went back to the first place - the place where the pain and discouragement began, and looked till He found the place where my name had been registered, and moved me like a site to a new server...His! I could tell there was a difference...my heart and life began to change...as Jesus cleared away the debris in my life, like files no longer needed or of use, and in their place He gave me new hope and faith and love...for on His server the space was endless, and the power to become, to be, came from above.
But there was more in store, the Lord didn't just move me to a better place to also be alone.... oh, no, He had much bigger plans that I had to wait for His timing to see. It was like He took my website, all the files of who I could and would someday be...and when He uploaded them onto His spacious server.... and to make my life complete and truly free...He brought you into my life, our love was instant and true, and our two 'Is' suddenly became a 'we!'
Now life is a brand new adventure, each day a new chance to really live and grow...each new experience we share, each day we're together fills me with more joy and happiness than I thought I would ever know. And since we're together on God's server, and from Him all the power and love is found.... we are free to be, to explore, to dare, to dream, for with God there are no bounds.
And I thank God each day for teaching me how to love again, for healing my heart and making it new.... and for giving me the gift of my dreams, the one He fulfilled when He gave me you. Together each day we add a new page to the website we're building, the one that we create with each thing that we do...a page built with faith, uploaded in hope, and powered by the love.... the love that came from God, that He poured out on us, the same love you give to me, and I give back to you.
