“Know me and you’ll know the Father,” Jesus said.
“Know the truth and the truth will set you free”
“My sheep know My voice and they follow Me.”
What does it mean to know in my heart, not just in my head???
Like the woman at the well, all my sins and secrets Jesus can tell.
Like the woman dragged to Him, Jesus says my soul He doesn’t condemn.
My jaded heart, it says I dare not trust. “Keep your guard up,” it insists.
I don’t know how to just be;
I think I need to do, do, do but it’s never enough for my Father to love me.
He’s so holy and perfect and just,
I can never be enough.
“Come to Me and I will give you rest,” Jesus says.
But I don’t know how to lean on Him and rest.
On high alert I’m always ready to run
“Protect yourself,” my head demands.
But my heart way down deep yearns
To stay and rest. Learn to love and be loved.
To talk to my Father, not in stilted fear
But freely speak as best of friends.
Like a Lover, my God pursues.
His Mercy, His Love, they never run out.
My name is engraved on the palm of His hands.
With compassionate arms open wide He stands
Ready to delight in me, to sing His love song over me.
PEACE – that’s what it means to KNOW in my HEART, not just in my head.
