Heart full of Jesus

If we have made a home in our hearts for Jesus, then we should treat ourselves like we would treat him.  If we did, we’d take better care of ourselves and show ourselves love.  We’d cook good, healthy meals for ourselves.  We’d take time to play and read good books.

Think if you are going to have a guest over – a longtime friend or someone important from another country.  What if it is the Queen or the Pope?  What would you do?  Would you put on tabloid TV?  Or soap operas?  Would you make them watch TV at all?  Or would you play board games or have a nice conversation?  Would you pull out all your musical instruments and create a song together?  Would you pull out the craft supplies and have fun making something?

How would you spend your time with this important visitor?  How is this different from how you spend your time with yourself when you are alone? Treat yourself as if you are an important visitor, because you are.  Your spirit, your soul, is a tiny piece of God.  Treat yourself as the child of God that you are.

About betsybeadhead

Hello, and Welcome. My name is Betsy, and I like beads and prayers. Fortunately those two things are more related than I ever realized. You are invited to “like” my Facebook page titled “Betsy Beadhead” and thus see what I’m talking about in my posts when I try to explain something using beads rather than words. This whole thing started because of that. Then I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I just started writing. I string together words the same way I string together beads, and both serve the same purpose. I work at a library, surrounded by ideas brushing up against each other. I draw, paint, and collage. I study world religions. In all these experiences I like combining different things and making new things, and stretching my understanding of what “is” and what “has to be.” You are welcome to share my posts - just please give credit where credit is due. I'm anti-censorship but I'm also anti-plagiarism.
