Daily Delight

A big fear of mine has been that people who enter my life will turn around and walk out at some point. From this stemmed insecurities of not being enough and being hard to love. In my attempts to say and do the right thing at all times, it brought failure which led to anxiety attacks and bouts of depression. All this striving because in my mind if I didn't have it all together, people left. I tried to fight it myself for a long time until I surrendered and asked for the Lord's help. He was faithful. 

It's been a mighty and tearful battle, but one night during a worship service He gave me a vivid vision of Him standing with the door wide open. He told me that He would never leave or abandon me. It was simple but it made me realize that even a thousand doors closed by others would never close the one held open by Jesus. People may come and go but the Rock of Ages chooses to stay relentlessly by our side. A message was given by Matt Chandler pointing out that if we question our worth and value, we are essentially looking up at the Cross and saying that what He did was not enough. What more could Jesus have done to prove His love? What else would have shouted to us that we, His bride, are worth it to Him? When I feel myself slipping back into that thought life, I have to remind myself of the Cross. I have to remind myself that at the end of this life, it doesn't matter who was by my side or who wasn't, I will get to run straight into the arms of my Abba.

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption of whom we cry out "Abba Father." 

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God. -Romans 8:15 (NKJV).
