“Righteous Father, though the world does not know You, I know You, and they know that You have sent me. I have made You known to them, and will continue to make You known in order that the love You have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
What an awesome, awesome prayer by Jesus for us. I am increasingly growing to understand just how important it is to have a deep, down knowledge of God in my life. Reading the Bible has become more than just finding something I can apply or a promise I can claim but more importantly it’s peering beyond the veil and finding out what my Father’s heart is.
I struggle with loneliness & acceptance as much as anyone else but as the days go by I am very thankful that I am coming to a deeper knowledge of God’s love for me and it is a lot easier to fill that emptiness with God’s Presence? How do I know that I am experiencing God? Well, experientially for me there’s this sense of calm & peace that just permeates my being as I talk to Him & read the Word every day. There’s this sense that He’s there and I suppose that’s what I mean by having that deep, down knowledge of God.
I remember purposing a long time ago that I’d make this blog something more neutral but I realise that who we are eventually emerges no matter how much we try suppress it. While I love writing about movies, video games & comic books – I end up writing more about faith than anything. Life matters more to me and if my experiences with God can help others, why not write about it?
I’m not all holy, I’m just like any other person in the world and I’m just like any other Christian who struggles to live my life real – pleasing to the One who made me.
