But it demands that God’s child make the difficult-yet-deliberate choice to step back from human emotions, grit her teeth and ask Christ to lead the way. It’s a challenge that grows easier for the Christ-follower who has fallen in love with Jesus as opposed to simply loving Jesus out of some obligation. That’s a whole different blog post, though.
The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: the Lord make His face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: the Lord lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
May God kneel before you, presenting gifts and guarding you closely with a hedge of protection. May His gaze illuminate the wholeness of His being toward you, bringing order to your life, giving you comfort and sustenance. May He lift up His wholeness of being and look upon you with love. May He set in place all you need – everything – to be whole and complete and restored in and through Him.
