Motivational, Inspirational, Hyperbole
How does one not take seriously extravagant and exaggerated statements or figures of speech to be in fact the truth unless we are blinded by the puffs of smoke pushed by gusts of wind?
There are those who continue to see their giftedness as something to benefit others floundering in life, they have what I call a predisposition toward being optimistic, effervescent, seldom given to worry or depression always buoyant in a world that depresses the hell out of most sane folks, surly you know the type.
Sadly if these qualities are not the by product of the certain unshakeable power and stability of His unconditional love, then we’re merely building our lives upon cosmetic botoxing.
Becoming further established in the reality of the Father’s unconditional love is the only thing able to displace the fear and torment that continues to try and keep me as a spiritual quadriplegic. God has not given me a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind. The power and sound mindedness are but expressions of what it means to be loved unconditionally.
Maybe this gives some clarity to the scripture that says, “The righteous are as bold as a lion.”
The reality of being loved is not a motivational, inspirational pick me up that dissipates when the first wave of assault comes crashing into my no fly zone.
I am learning that my Father isn’t nearly as interested in changing my circumstances as he is in wanting to infuse my entire being with the true knowledge and enormity of His love, which frees me to embrace life and all that it encompasses head on!
