Do you, or have you, known someone who always expressed a kind loving presence around you? Did they give you a "spontaneous hug" even though you were "cranky" (I use "cranky" because it softens the pain of my actual belligerent, prideful, selfish self)? Did you just want to be around them no matter what you were feeling; were you drawn to them, even wanted to be like them? You did not read some words, someone didn't open your eyes where the "bush burned", the "skies opened up" and the "earth shook". It was not just the "usual intellectual acceptance" of GOD that we have been indoctrinated and conditioned to believe is our Salvation; we actually "experienced" GOD through this person! When we think of this person, tears often come (like rivers of JOY) when we think about their "graciousness", their Mercy and their love. "See what kind of love the FATHER has given to us, that we should be called children of GOD..." (1 John 3:1). Does your heart break for others to "know" and experience GOD through personal revelation? Did GOD send this special person to show you, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT, TO BE PERFECTLY LOVED?
