And as I sang this song, from a personal place..(Open MY eyes, Lord...Open MY ears, Lord),
a sense of peace and calm came over my spirit, and as I confessed to the Lord that I felt rather "out of touch" lately, He comforted me, and helped me to know that He understood...and that He wasn't really that far away...and that He'd always be right there for me, no matter what I was feeling (or not feeling). See, the beauty of this relationship with Jesus is that we don't always have to be "feeling something", or "doing something" to please Him. We can just "REST" in Him, in the knowledge of His love and constant care and support no matter what we are going through.
Romans 8:1 gives the believer the assurance that when we are "in Christ Jesus", there is now "no condemnation" to those who "do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."
