Just Jesus… Is He Enough?


woman givng it to Jesus

His love is not a human love it is a God-sized love that has no conditions or boundaries. In fact He crosses human boundaries to get to me every day. There was a time in my life when I walked away like the prodigal, thinking I knew how best to live my life. He waited and He watched then He took action and caused a series of events to happen that brought me to what I would call a “terrible time in my life.” It wasn’t. In the end it has been one of the many miracles He has worked in my life and that of my family.

I have to admit it was hard to come back to Daddy because the pleasure of sin seemed so worth it. It wasn’t. It was hard to come back home to Him but He still wanted me even after I messed up my life so bad. He longed to make it right.  He DID make it right. I am His daughter and His love is above all I can imagine or think. I can never be separated from His love no matter how far I go or what I do while I’m gone away. It simply doesn’t change anything for Him. I am the same in His eyes no matter the sin I fall into. Roman 8:28-39 Nothing, nothing and I mean nothing can cause Him to pull His love from me.

This realization changed my life. Though my family and friends could only accept me to a certain point God accepted everything about me: the good, the bad and the ugly. Acceptance and approval are very important to me. I have spent most my life trying to attain them, However  I discovered through divine revelation that GOD IS LOVE, that I was His forever and even on the worst days of my life He was still there  It was then that I could really love Him right back. I am complete in Him even though there are still times I attempt to find satisfaction in other people, things and circumstances. But it’s just Jesus. No matter how I look at it…its just Jesus, it’s all Jesus.

I am so thankful I was chosen by Him and that when He did choose me I received the forgiveness and mercy He offered me. How about you? Is it just Jesus for you?

  1. i loved it! 🙂 a mere realization that i need to remind myself each n everyday..nobody will love me, accept me, encourage me and support me to achieve my goals as he does..yet every day and every second i moved away from..just like the prodigal..thankyou for showing me again that he loves me abundantly and waits on me..its time i give him all my love..

  2. Amen, Julie! Good word and good reminder. So easy for me to fall into the trap of “I’m not good enough because I did…X” — but God wipes the slate clean. He is not us, remembering every wrong. I’m trying to remember that constantly, not just sometimes or most of the time. He IS love — OH that we could have a little taste of that perfect love to give it right back to Him and others!
