Every once in a while I send out a “special edition” of my Good News Daily as well as my usual newest edition. A message that stands out in my heart as something to be separated out from the other messages I send. Such is the case with this one called “The Man of My Dreams.” I hope it is a blessing and great encouragement to you!
I am concerned many, many people see God as simply up in the sky orchestrating the world and don’t understand and believe and partake of the breathtakingly beautiful reality that the Lord God almighty wants to have a deeply personal, deeply intimate relationship with His children with Him as our Lord and Father and so very much more!
This we can only have by being born again through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and believing He died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead. We need to turn from a lifestyle of sin to the Lord and His ways with a true commitment and devotion to Him and to living for Him according to His ways. Being born again means we are forgiven by God and promised everlasting life with Him. Being born again marks the beginning of a lifelong journey on this earth believing in Him and following Him day by day – and ultimately forevermore!
If you need help beginning a forever relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at lara@GoodNews.love or 843-338-2219. In the meantime, be encouraged and blessed reading “The Man of My Dreams” below.
love & blessings,
The Man of My Dreams
I loved, loved, loved men. I believed with all my heart each and every one over the years I professed to fall in love with was the answer to my woes, desires, and needs. If they would only love me the way I wanted to be loved and let me love them the way I wanted to love them, all would be right and well in my world. It never did work out that way.
The love was never perfect or even close to it if it could be called love at all. I found myself crushed, broken, hopeless, hurting, and heartbroken time and again. My heart always ended up in more and more sharp, jagged, aching pieces. Then along came the man of my dreams. The love of my life.
His name is the Lord Jesus Christ, and He is perfect in all ways. Through and through. In Him I have found perfect love, peace, hope, joy, comfort, rest, refreshing, light, healing, compassion, companionship, honesty, integrity, loyalty, passion, purpose, faithfulness, goodness, greatness, generosity, strength, friendship, patience, wisdom, direction, happiness, kindness, and on and on it goes.
Some people find their dreams and treasures on this earth in a temporary way as everything on this earth is only for a time. Mine comes from heaven, and His love and my relationship with Him are forever. He is my “portion forever,” as the Bible says. My everlasting hope. My eternal love. My precious beloved Jesus. Man of my dreams. My Lord and King and Savior forevermore!
My Lord, my God, my King, my Savior, my first and forever love, please help my beloved readers to know your love and to fall in love with you and to be loved by you and to love and follow you humbly, faithfully, reverently with every single ounce of their hearts. Show them and give to them an awesomely intimate and ever-growing forever and ever relationship with you, oh Lord. AMEN!
“My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.” Psalm 84:2
“O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches. Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice. My soul follows close behind You; Your right hand upholds me.” Psalms 63:1-8
“Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalms 73:25-26
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalms 46:10
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.” Psalms 23:1-6
