Prayer ~ He Loves Me and You.

“Give all your worries and cares to
God, for He cares about what
happens to you.” (1 Peter 5:7 NLT)

When I saw the face of Jesus
it was a hologram of love. Creases
on His brow displayed a passion
for me, His eyes striking the exterior
of my worldliness, His thoughts
penetrating my soul, the inner me
salved by His concern for the missing
fire in my belly, disturbed by wrongs, my
unforgiveness nesting in a comfortable
rut of sinfulness. As He prayed for me
I fell to my knees in submission knowing
He forgives me. He knows this heart
and wants me to rise above my failings
to fulfill the life He has prepared for me.
