He knows me. From head to toe, from the inside out and the outside in. HE knows me. He KNOWS me. He knows ME!
Do you ever just crave one person to spend time with who knows you? The whole you. The real you. The good, the bad, the ugly...the beautiful, the happy, the sad - all of you?
What would you do? How would you feel with that person? Relaxed? After all, they know everything about you - no reason to hide anything or be embarrassed. No reason to think about what you say before you say it. You can laugh with your goofiest laugh and know that he won't tease you. You can express every emotion and know that she understands perfectly....
Think about your best friend...the person who you most enjoy spending time with...maybe a sister or brother, spouse, cousin, friend.... How do you feel when you are with them? Happy, energized, creative, relaxed? Now imagine being totally 100% yourself...don't hold anything back at all....and take a look at their face. Still feel that way? Or do you feel just a little bit uneasy because they look just a little bit shocked??
We can be who we are with God. After all, He created us. He knows us all the way through - every thought, every feeling, every word on our tongue, every thing we do. Everything. He KNOWS.
Now imagine He's sitting there with you right at this moment; your hand in his, your head on His shoulder. You're talking, He's listening....no judgement, no shocked looks...just love radiating grace and forgiveness and....peace.
May He look upon you with favor....and give you peace.
He knows you. He made you. He loves you.
