I feel that I've carried a heavy weight throughout my life and never really experienced that abundant life Jesus promised, not His joy. I've had the real me locked away for so long. I've had a cupboard full of pain, rejection, anger, etc. into which I kept stuffing more and kept the door tightly closed on it all.
This week God enabled me to open the cupboard doors and look into the big black hole. He went in there with me and cleaned it out and brought me out into a bigger space. He’s poured into me more love and acceptance and joy than I have ever known. I feel lighter and freer and feel I know in my heart now what I previously only knew in my head- how much I am precious to God; His child. My trust, about allowing Him to take control of every part of my life and my being, has deepened and now I am looking forward with happy anticipation to all that He has for me in the future. What an amazing God we have!
