A new season

Oh man, I just have to share whats going on.

Since I’ve been back at uni which is a couple of weeks God has been stirring up a passion and desire for Him, greater than anything I’ve known before.

One thing thats been on my heart is to learn to love like Jesus loves. Wow!

God has blessed me with an incredible mentor at my uni church and I thank God for her so much. Her heart for Jesus is so flipping beautiful and her desire to see me love Jesus more and to live for Him blows me away. We’ve only met up officially once but it was awesome. God is so good and I am so excited to see all that God does in me through that beautiful woman!

So I text her last night telling her again how He has stirred up in me a desire for Him and she dropped a book through my front door this morning. Tonight I read the first chapter ad I was literally blown away by it!

it’s called ‘A Beautiful Way’ and the first chapter is called Gods Personal Love.

He has opened my eyes afresh. God loves me. Fullstop. Not because of what I do or because of who I am but just becuase he does. Simple as. He desires me. He desires my heart. He desires a relationship with me. When Jesus died on the cross-that was the ultimate display of love. He made the way possible. I love because He first loved me. He is the initiator. It’s all from Him. He didn’t just decide once that He loved me. he chooses every day to love me. Every day He desires my heart and my relationship with Him. He wants to share His love for me in a personal way, for me to know that He loves me and desires me.

The book challenged me to be specific with God in how I want Him to show His love. At first, i thought it was selfish or stupid but it’s not becuase God looks at the heart. I have prayed for somethign specific. i’m not going to share what it is but I’m excited to see when and how God does it but for now, I can look around me, and see that He loves me. His love is everywhere, sometimes we just need to open our eyes.

He showed His love for me in that while I was still a sinner, Jesus died for me. Romans 5 v 6. God loves me. Fullstop.

    You’ll read the first chapter of the Esther Book that Mrs W gave us and there’s a bit in there about being a Princess in God’s Court – don’t forget it!

    Hey Suzie, I’m only just catching up on blogs since early last summer as I’ve hardly been on the Internet for the last 6 months! Anyway… just wanted to say that I “had” to read your August post and this one within minutes of each other rather than months apart, and it’s really good to see where Abba’s taking you. I pray that this continues…! Let me know when you next update this!! And… if you ever need an ear from someone near yet far, well you know where to find me!
    Much love, Hannah (cousin one!) xxx
