Learning to See God for Myself

 In this “Joyful Contemplation”, what attribute stands out to me about God, as far as I have come to know Him? This is what I was asking myself. I landed on this one, “gentleness” He has been so gentle to me.  It has meant everything to me for personal reasons. I’m so thankful and grateful that God is really “gentle.” It says so in His word which I will give at the end of this musing.

To experience this myself in my most hell on earth days; when I certainly didn’t deserve it nor even expect it….that is something! And I would have to say that I wasn’t even aware of it at the time. It didn’t occur to me when I was having these experiences because I had no grid for it. It often takes a “look back” to see things one didn’t see even in the experience, but since this is joyful I will not dwell on my past because I have experienced such healing through the years. Anyway, I now focus on the present and the future, since He has one for me and I look at it with hope. 

I once was blind but now I see! His Grace-Mr. Grace, has enabled me to see and I can appreciate the riches of His glorious Grace. This is just one attribute of course, but I was talking to Him and thanking Him for it;  it seemed like He was glad and had a smile on His face listening intently. His gentleness…..

Sweet!!!

I wanted to write something under this picture but it wouldn’t let me…mmmmm; maybe I have to learn how to do that instead of just assuming that it would let me. Ok so here are a few Scriptures that speak of our Lord’s gentleness.

Mat. 11:29, 11 Cor. 10:1a, Gal. 5:23, Eph. 4:2; just a few and some to do with the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

My question to my readers is; “what is His “stand out” attribute been for you? Ponder that one…..and once you capture it, hold it with your heart and bless Him with copious thanks and what that means to you….tell Him!

 

Doesn’t this look like a nice place to sit on a comfortable beach chair and contemplate….all day?

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best part of my life and learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should so I will take them up on it and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 chronological years old. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 2 Great-granddaughters. I am currently staying a while with my youngest Daughter and family before I head to AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and when I get back to AZ I will re-activate my Gym membership.
