The Absolute Best

Let’s face it! We all want the best. The best car, the best phone, the best health (don’t I ever!) the best house, the best job, the best friends, the best life . . . .

God has already given His children the absolute best: JESUS!!

He is the best!! The best for our souls is already attained through our Lord Jesus Christ!! We’ve been given the absolute VERY BEST! Nothing comes close than salvation and growing a personal relationship with the best Advocate, Friend, Father, Savior, Redeemer, and Counselor we can ever have.

And the good news is, even if you lack having the best things in this lifetime it doesn’t matter. Turn your eyes upon Jesus, the absolute best and be amazed at how little and dim the things of this world become when you keep your gaze fixed upon the best Person you will ever know.

Much love,

Viv πŸ’šπŸ™

  1. So true. His love transcends our emotions, our inner self, our spirit to feel His trust as a friend as a brother as Saviour as Redeemer as Councilor as Advocate… praise His Holy Name.
    How can we fail not to love Him back..
    Thank you for the good vibes, Viv. Many blessings are sent your way. πŸ€—πŸ˜‡πŸ•Šβ€

      1. Much love, peace and good health dear heart. You’re a blessing and an inspiration in always staying positive. I like the quote Timothy Pina penned, “If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it!”, so true. You, my friend embody this. Blessings always, Aida.

      1. Oh okay! I know you have a lot on you and continue to pray. I would be honored if you can listen but totally understand if you’re too busy with school and such. So don’t worry if you can’t.

  2. Viv, thank you so much for this reminder! ❀️ How amazing would it be to truly grasp this truth and live in the wonder and reality of being given JESUS? I so enjoyed and was encouraged by this post!

    Have you heard the story behind the song β€œTurn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”? It was inspired by something a woman named Lilias Trotter wrote (and Lilias is my heroine). β€œTurn full your soul’s vision to Jesus and look and look at Him, and a strange dimness will come over all that is apart from Him… For β€˜He is worthy’ to have all there is to be had in the heart that He has died to win.”

      1. If you’re interested, something of hers that has particularly touched me is her book “Parables of the Cross.” It’s in the free domain, so you can find a free ebook on gutenberg.org and a free audiobook on librivox.org. I listen to the audiobook on YouTube all the time, haha. πŸ™‚ I hope that whatever research you do into her life and/or writings is a blessing to you! ❀
