The same Jesus who appeared to Paul and turned his whole world around
The same Jesus who gave manna to the Jews in the desert
The Same Jesus who met my mom on our dirt road
The same Jesus who poured out abundantly my identity and over and over proved yourself faithful to your word
The same Jesusu who is trustworthy, reliable, wild, fun, peaceful, so very kind
The same Jesus who is incredibly real
The same Jesus who has turned my heartache into lifegiving wisdom for others
The same Jesus who meets me in encounters
The same Jesus who has carried us through very hard and chaotic seasons
The same Jesus who has guided us step by step in spiritual warfare
The same Jesus who has done miracles in our children
The same Jesus who calls out the gold in Joshua in his season of questioning
The same Jesus who sits with me in grief, anger, betrayal
The same Jesus who provided unprecedented amounts of food, money, provision for our family when there was no natural way
The same Jesus who gave us a home that was in our dreams
The same Jesus who romanced my heart even as a 3 year old singing in the woods of Georgia to the oceanside heartfelt chats as a 19 year old to the Grand Canyon moments of epiphanies
You are a faithful friend.
Through and through.
I love you Jesus.
Thank you for the way you are through it all.
