Fully Known, Fully Loved

"I see straight through you, into the depths of your being... Rejoice in the relief of being fully understood. Talk to me about your struggles and feelings of inadequacy. Little by little, I will transform your weaknesses into strengths... your relationship with Me is saturated in grace." (15)
What a strange yet wonderful reality, to be fully known, every detail - from before conception and on. (Ps. 139:13-16) He knows me much better than I know myself. He's not mystified, confused or put off by my shortcomings. He REALLY "gets it" when it comes to who I REALLY am! Yet He loves me! That's absolutely amazing!! Why?
Because I know enough about myself to be thoroughly unimpressed with myself. There's a laundry list of things I'd like to change or that I wish could be lifted from my life. That's exactly when I am in the "optimal condition for being filled with (His) peace." In fact, each time I struggle with "feelings of inadequacy" I can unload the burden of my weaknesses through honest confession. I lean harder into Him. He holds tighter onto me. Suddenly, I discover He's hugged the heaviness right out of me!
Sharing His Hugs...dmc


  1. "I discover He's hugged the heaviness right out of me!"(dmc) I love that! God has really hugged the frustration out of me. Recently my anger got the best of me. No I didn't hit anyone physically, but someone got it verbally. After that I completely felt/saw my inadequacy! I cried and still do when I think about it, but God has lifted my heaviness and continues to show His love for me.

    Our God is an awesome God!

  2. Here's a "hug" from me, too! I understand and just LOVE your hungry heart for God! You inspire me!

  3. Can you post the entire Jesus Calling page because I misplaced mine and I'm doing daily journals on His Words as well.

    Much thanks )

  4. Dear Pure, May you be blessed as you continue to search out Jesus' amazing Truths. If you do not have the devotional book, you can download the Jesus Calling devotional, by Sarah Young, as an app from the IPhone App Store. I believe it would be unethical for me to post the entire Jesus Calling page, since it is copyright (2004) material. I try to be careful to credit her work with quotes. I am grateful for the impact this book is having on so many lives. I believe it is a true reflection of Jesus' heart.

  5. I believe that if we made it our top priority to be fully known to him(Jesus)and one another in him(Jesus) there would be no need for Church covenants, membership requirements, creeds, statement of faith. Because we would know and understand his will, his word, and his grace, mercy, and most of all, all the facets of his glorious love. Whatever we don't fully understand
    his love will provide. Knowledge will pass away, but greatest of these is his precious love, to be completly loved by him ,and love him the same way as he loves us. Please reply! Thank you!
