His Above All Else

I am God’s above all else.

Struggling to find the words this week as I process it all. The words that keep rolling around in my head are: I am His above all else.

I saw The Shack yesterday and it wrecked me. It had been a while since I read the book and it was such a good reminder of how we allow our pain to consume us, but even in the brokenness He calls us beautiful.

I am His above all else.

There’s not much to it.

No words for how incredibly thankful I am for Jesus taking my place on that cross so as to have a relationship with me for eternity.

I was reminded this week of what it feels like when you aren’t focused on Abba and instead are focused on past pain and self image. It was bittersweet at moments; sweet to see the goodness in the gap of now and where He brought me from- bitter when I realized I didn’t let God in on the way I view myself and my attempts at being better within that. Seeing The Shack brought me back to this place of sweet surrender, brought me back to eternity mindset and the purpose in all things when I am focused on Pappa.

I am His above all else and if this is all the goodness I get from life, then being His is more than enough for me.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
