This is the day that the Lord has made, we should rejoice and be glad in it!!

This is a simple unassuming hub. I share with you my first journal entry since recovering from depression. God is so so good. we will never know how good- till we are with Him in glory...



"...I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10


Jesus came that I may have life and have it to the full. That statement has never seemed more real to me than now. I have never known such grace to fall upon me like rain. I have never felt such a breeze of mercy in my sails bidding me 'go, go and have life, and have it to the full my child."


Having recently come through a short period of depression I am so bouyed up by the unmerrited favour God has shown me. Not only should He send His Son to die for me and give me life everlasting- but to give me this life to the full...?? Have you ever known such goodness, such unfailing faithfulness, such abundant generosity? This uncapped offering of the King upon a simple servant like myself is absurd.


And this is why it's so beautiful.


Can you think of any reason why God should take a sinner like me and clothe them in such fine robes of safety, such rich jewels of joy. Yes, precious gems of the Fathers love are scattered everywhere and I do not need to greedily store each one up and refuse to let it go- for each gem has it's place in time, and surely there is another soul nourashing gem arond the corner.


Surely goodness and love shall follow me all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:6)


Why did I ever doubt the Father? I didn't think I had, but now that I have such an increased delerium in His Self and revel in His majesty I think surely I must have doubted Him- or maybe He has just taken me to a new level of the Spirit of wisdom in revelation of HIm. (eph 1:17)


The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. John 3:29


Ah, the joy of being my Kings bride Such overwhelming goodness my soul cannot justify... Blessed be His name!

gracefaith, depression is no fun thing. I know because I too have gone thru it. clinging to God and Jesus was my safety blanket, even though the doctor thought God was a figment of my imagination.

Why God has one Son instead of two or three?
