166- Accepted and Loved
November 18, 1985
Up at 5:15am by the grace of Jesus.
Streams in the Desert, p. 332: My environment is of His determining. He means it to intensify my faith, to draw me into nearer communion with Himself, to ripen my power. In the dungeon my soul should prosper. Luke 7:23 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.
I asked for a repentant heart, waking up with a bad dream, accusations on my mind, and failures on my mind.
The Luke scripture led me to what Dan shared from the meeting on Thursday night: the woman washing Jesus’ feet with her tears, drying them with her hair, and anointing them with perfume.
He accepted her, he loved and cherished and forgave her. He even defended her before those who questioned her sanctification. Luke 7:36-50
Oh, God, that these experiences in my life would tenderize my heart and give me compassion for others.
