Greatest Refreshing

The Lord is with you always, for all who call upon the name of Jesus shall be saved.

He is your exceeding great Reward and Resurrection life. He is your Beloved and your greatest refreshing, drawing you deeper into His warm embrace.

He is not cold, stubborn or distant. His heart is giving, kind and generous. His mind is filled with love-thoughts toward you, not harm or hate.

His eyes are searching to and fro, searching you out and searching within, looking deep into your heart, knowing every part of you.

He searches you not so He can pick at you or condemn you, but so He can show you that He cares for you; so He can heal every hurt no matter how big, no matter how small.

He loves you. More than the sparrows, you are to Him: valued, desired, loved.
