Long ago, in what sure feels like, a galaxy far far away, I watched my first movie. I can’t recall exactly what it was. Maybe, it was Superman, Star Wars, The Wizard of Oz. But, I remember my reaction, was such wonder. It was a place, where I could find Heaven. I loved television, plays, books, music, and anything, that was expressive.
Within the confinement of creativity, even dark stuff, Jesus found me, and I fell in LOVE. But, don’t get me wrong, The Love affair, was not without challenges. But, somehow there were always protective measures, put in place to bring me to safety. Did they always feel good, nope. In Jerry McGuire, he has a line, “We live in a Cynical World, a Cynical World. I remember thinking, the world around me is, but my world is Jesus Land. It does not belong TO ME, but I am always a resident.
We are told to be “alien” of the world, by God. And, that WE actually ARE peculiar. In all my journey here, I can finally say, I am A Okay with that. Well, most days anyway. 😉 I just want to say, I’m very glad that Jesus loves everyone the same. Because, I don’t know about you, but i FULLY rely on His protective measures, that He has for living. 🙂
