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.
To listen to more of where this poem was birthed out of, listen to Wholistic Hearts Podcast episode 82 “A Quick Devotional: Song of Songs 1:1-2”
Wholistic Hearts podcast is a podcast where you can find Christian coaching, find faith building meditations, and gain experience encountering Jesus face to face. Through our imagination, we are able to connect with Holy Spirit in a wholehearted and transformative way. Kristin Fields Chadwick- host, Christian Life Coach, and fellow mama is a recovering “box checker of all things“, a lover of delighting in Jesus and an encourager and coach to other women who are hungry for more. You will find over the last couple years interviews and teachings about how to move from knowing a lot ABOUT God to truly knowing God intimately. 2022 I felt the Lord strongly suggest to make a season of just encounters! I hope you enjoy each of these beautiful invitations to truly SEE God face to face.
Wrapping up our Summer Series, we read the last and final chapter of Song of Songs. Think about all the ways Jesus has shown up for you in your life. Today’s encounter helps us to intentionally celebrate how Jesus has shown you your true Kingdom identity and united us with himself.
ENJOY! I pray each of these encounters impacts you to want to spend more time with your Creator.
Thank you for this season on Wholistic Hearts podcast, my friends! I will be taking a “sabbatical” to rest and pause and reflect for a season.
Please feel free to use these encounters over and over and dig in even more!
Follow me on IG for updates and to share your stories of how Jesus encountered you.
