Completely Determined ...

I LOVE this rooster. Did I mention, I LOVE this rooster? Why you ask? Because he is determined. He is running and he isn't letting up. Look at his eyes. And, I'm thinking, he isn't running after something. He is running TO something. He reminds me. I know, it's just a picture of a rooster, however, I am running TO God with this same intensity. I am determined. I am focused. The old is gone and the new has come. I have stood next to Jesus. I have felt His love and grace intensely and in the last, seriously hardest year I can remember in a good long while,  I have stood still, stomped my feet, gotten angry, listened to made up stuff and allowed "life" and the deceiver to distract me. No more. Not now. I miss Him. I miss His heartbeat. I miss His smell. I miss His touch. I miss His whispers. I miss Him and so I am running TO Him and I am never stopping again. I am choosing life to the full.
"The thief approaches with malicious intent, looking to steal, slaughter, and destroy; I came to give life with joy and abundance." - Jesus, John 10:10 (Voice)
 "Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13 (AMP)
