Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 17
 

 *" I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and
joy instead of sorrow. I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and My
people will be filled with My bounty, declares the Lord." *Jeremiah 31:13-14

Oh, the sense of anticipation that filled my heart as I realized that the
Lord had real affirmation and affection for me. I began to feel confidence
before Him. It was too good to be true! I wept for joy. And when the tears
finally ceased, I could sense the anger, bitterness, guilt, and condemnation
begining to diminish in my heart. My little, flickering flame of human zeal
was replaced by a blaze of passionate love for a glorius *person. *His
intense love and ardent affection for me far exceeded that of my earthly
father's....and I knew that I would never, ever, be the same.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father, You-the Creator of all heaven and Earth- are really my friend! Your
friendship causes a rush of excitment in me.*
*I am filled with such great love for You, and I will spend my life loving
You more and serving You with all that I am and have.*
**

UNDERSTANDING GOD'S GREAT AFFECTION FOR ME WAS BEGINING TO REIGNITE MY LOVE
FOR HIM.
