*On Thursdays at Faith Barista, Bonnie Gray serves up a writing prompt and invites bloggers to join her in writing on a specific topic. Today’s prompt is: JESUS.*
*This post is also a continuation of my blogging through my God-sized dream. For previous posts in the dream series, please see the titles under “God-Sized Dreaming” in the sidebar at the right.*
I know she thinks she is too deep and complicated, but that is what I love about her so much. It thrills Me to see her breathe in this magnificent world my Father created and to contemplate the people and ideas in it.
She is beautiful, and I look forward to the day when she believes that!
It makes me smile to see her confident in the gifts I’ve given her. I rejoice when she sits down to create. Each brushstroke and drop of glue is a delight to me. Each word typed and spoken in encouragement makes me want to do cartwheels! When Mandy combines those: art, words, and love: watch out!
She makes me proud.
If you see her, remind her that she is valuable, protected, and worthy of support. She worries about that.
I have given her such as strong voice, and we are working on her claiming it. I made her for freedom. I died for her freedom, and I am carrying her through a journey of healing so she will live and love abundantly.
I am pleased that she is inviting me to do this.
If you could see her heart like I do, no words would be necessary. Her desire to speak truth and life into all my children, as she strives to live that out, makes me want to burst with excitement!
Did you know? She keeps asking me to show her how to abide. And I am showing her, in increments, as she is ready to receive it.
She is my beloved, and I treasure most the times I can remind her of that, especially when she receives Me in the Eucharist, and we are truly one.
My precious, precious girl. I love her. I cherish her. I delight in her.
I rejoice in her.
In her, I am well pleased.

So, there you have it. Presented with knees knocking, as Ann would say.
And here’s my invitation: spend some time in prayer and ask Him. What would He say about you?
Would you share it with me? I would love to know what you discover!
