Over the past few months, I've found myself a little sickened by the fact that I only blog about myself, mainly the things I do. Many times I felt the tug to write about something other than myself, something deeper, something bigger. Today is the day. Recently I've been reading an amazing book called The Organic God by Margaret Feinberg. I love her. She writes like she's having a conversation with you. You can imagine just sitting down over a cup of coffee listening to her tell you a story. In one particular chapter she asks one simple question at the end, What do YOU love about Jesus?
At first I thought, I should have an answer pop straight into my head and I was disappointed in myself when it didn't. Then, I thought, I need to dig into God's Word more to find out for myself about his personality, tone through life, etc. And then this word kept creeping into my mind...CONSISTENCY. I love Jesus' consistency. I love it that he never got frantic, scurrying around like I do, that He loved people consistently even when they were unlovable, no matter the circumstance, He remained constant.
Then, God started showing me WHY I love that about His Son. Because consistency is one of the biggest struggles in my life. I sugar-coat it saying I simply "like change." But yesterday, Justin and I were talking and I realized the only thing I'm truly consistent with is my marriage to him. Working out, studying God's Word, keeping the house cleaned, even going to tan. I struggle to consistently commit to something for more than a week or two. I've been this way forever. In college, I would go workout on a whim and say, "I better do it now before I don't want to anymore." yikes. It's almost humorous, yet I long to be like my Father and Savior. So, what I love most about Jesus, is also what I long for most....CONSISTENCY. I'd love to hear from anyone and everyone...
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT JESUS?
