10-2-09 Devotion: Pressing In

I’m pressing in, Lord.
Pushing past my hurts
my failures
my expectations.
I’m reaching beyond the past and taking hold of the future.
My eyes are on You.

Despite the crowds,
You see me.
As I move toward you,
You move toward me.
There is no condemnation
or disappointment
or rejection in your eyes…
Only love.

And, what love it is!
Extravagant and unrestrained!
Lavish and excessive!
Completely fulfilling and satisfying!
Your love is perfect –
Beyond comprehension.
Your love brings true joy and peace.
Your love brings meaning to my life.
Your love brings me to my knees.
