In His Eyes

Years ago, I belonged to a church that stressed the saying, once saved, always saved. Because of being brought up to believe this, I fed into the common act a lot of shallow Christians feed into. I would sin willfully, with the intention of repenting the next day.
Rededications were frequent for me in those days, until one night when the Lord appeared to me. He had the crown of thorns on His head. He was bronze from the sun, and His eyes shown with compassion and love like I have never known. Tears streamed down His face, as He spoke to me. His lips did not move, yet I heard Him in my Spirit, all the same, say, "Why do you crucify me over and over again?"
As I gazed into those eyes, they were full of substance. All He was, pierced my heart. His great love for me flowed from those eyes into me, melting my stony heart. Revelation of the meaning of salvation ignited me. My heart was a flame of True repentance, as I had truly met the Master and seen through His Eyes the way I had been.
I was changed that day. His love changed me forever. His Love today is what changes anyone. The Love of God is Total, and it is Substance. In God's Love is Revelation, and in His Love is Understanding. In His Love is Salve for the Blind Eyes. In His Love is Salvation from our lost self. His Love is never empty and shallow. When you taste of His Love you will be filled with Him and come away with something good in hand. You can never taste His love without the revelation of its touch leaving an impression that will last forever.
The Love of God comes to all of us with loaded down benefits of revelation of Himself. It reveals the whole essence of God with one simple introduction. Without it we could never understand why we would want to know this one called Jesus. When He chooses to introduces Himself, we then, understand why the word says, "...He First Loved Us." "Taste and see that the Lord is good."

Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see.

Blessings to you today and may you be saturated in God's Love.


May the Lord bless you and keep you

Hello DunDeal
I love you post for tonight and I can relate to it. I write Christian Poetry and I wanted to share with you and whomever else whants to read it, this one that I wrote last year during a very tying time I went through that addresses this very subject that you are talking about.
I thank God that He is who He is, sweet and Amazing Grace indeed, to be savored.

TITLED: SPIRT AND FLESH (Written By: Ellen Underwood)
The Spirit is strong and the Flesh is weak
as they struggle within us and the paths that they seek.

One leads to freedom, the other to chains.

One leads to wholeness, the other to broken remains.

One leads your soul to life, the other to death.

One breaths upon you, the other steals your breath.

One leads to happiness and a soul that is content.

The other to sorrow and a heart that is over spent.

So, why do we struggle when we know wrong from right?

Why can’t we stand up firm and fight the good fight?

It’s because we are not meant to fight this battle alone.

In this dwelling place that is not our home.

For His Plans for us are good, if we would only trust in His will.

Waiting patiently, quietly, knowing that He is our God and to be still.

Some say there is Grace for all that, and though this is true.

His Grace did not come cheap when He hung there for me and you.

No His Grace did not come cheap, although the cost to us is free.

"So" my heart must remember this the next time the struggle visits me.
