“And my life is on display in them. For I’m no longer going to be visible in the world; They’ll continue in the world .. While I return to you. Holy Father, guard them as they pursue  this life .. That you conferred as a gift through me…” John 17:10-11 The Message

What is God doing with you…?

He’s putting His life on display in you. He’s guarding you as you live your life. He’s on the “job .. speaking up for your life” today. Jesus prayed for you a long time ago. Yes … you were a mess at one time … maybe still are in some areas. He prayed that your life would experience Father-Son oneness. That’s the kind of love you’ve longed for all of your life. He has never stopped praying for you. There are still areas of your life that He is making whole. He hasn’t wasted one day of your life. He hasn’t forgotten one moment of how you have lived. He hasn’t overlooked one hurt .. one failure .. one regret .. one wound .. one longing. What Jesus is doing in you is permanent. He is working in the deep places of your life .. your heart .. your mind. That’s why he has never stopped praying for you. That’s why he is guarding you at this moment. That’s why it is a gift. It only takes a moment.

“But Jesus’ priesthood is permanent. He’s there from now to eternity to save everyone who comes to God through him, always on the job to speak up for them.” Hebrews 7:24-25 The Message
