Today, Let God Treat You!

“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness will I draw you to me. “Jeremiah 31:3

“Robbie, let me treat you.” Five of my favorite words! :0)

Don’t you just love it when you are having coffee with someone and they say that? And what a kick it is to be the one surprising your friend. It’s not a huge thing, but the moment always brings me a smile and a little warm-up to the heart just as satisfying as morning coffee.

The other day, a friend of mine surprised me by treating me to a cup of hot ginger peach tea. As I sat to drink it, I felt the Spirit in me whisper, “I am FOR you, Robbie.” It was as if God treated me to the coffee, through my friend.

God wants to treat you and me. He is FOR us and He adores us. Last week I was in a three day funk, surrounded by negative thoughts and a pity party. God treated me to moments of hope and gave me a hand out of the pit I dug for myself.

TODAY, why don’t you and I allow God to treat us! Watch for what happens and see that He loves you, no matter your circumstances or your emotional state. He is FOR you! This morning God put the following words in my heart. For me and I hope and pray, for you.

Let Him Treat You

To a Taste of His Goodness,

To a Cup of Joy.

Let Him Treat You

To Peace during Anxiety,

To a Breath of Life during Smothering Pain.

Let Him Treat You

With Tenderness ‘cause you are Worth it.

With Gentle Humor ‘cause He Loves your Laugh.

Let Him Treat You

As Who You Are,

As Who You’re Meant to Be,

As Who You’re Becoming.

Let Him Treat You with His Infinite, Unconditional and Unrelenting LOVE.

Today, God’s Buying! :0)

What a great post, Robbie. So neat to think about how God loves to treat us -- just like I love to treat my girls to things. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember how much He really loves me. I need to remember that He longs to treat me! :)
