GOD-VIRUS

GOD-VIRUS
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

I love the soul that God is making out of me.
While I have tendencies to gripe, grumble, and bemoan the painful pruning process; I cannot discount the degree of growth God is producing in me through it.
My knowledge of God's word, through the difficulties, has been translated and integrated into how I live, how I think, and and how I love.
The appropriation of truth is refining and restoring me.
As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, God is with me and mapping out my destiny.
A God-virus is spreading through me, dear reader, and I find myself ...
 -Better toned and more developed in muscle.
-Straighter in stature and stronger in resolve.
-More compassionate and more persuasive.
-More in love and more impassioned.
I'm more sure of God than I've ever been of anything in my life.
I've become an "ear" astute at hearing and learning another's difficulties,
 and a soul that's safe to lean on in distress.
I've become an "identifier" and not a "criticizer" on the journey of redemption.
I've discovered that when I tell others the truth about myself;
it makes it easier for others to tell the truth about themselves.
And then Christ goes to work, dear reader, and we begin to learn the truth about Him and we activate it in how we live and love through Him.
I'm learning ...
When truth is in operation, anything is possible and all things conceivable through the Spirit.
Mmmm ....
To live out the terms of our redemption is the most joyful process on earth;
and to come alongside others on their journey is invigorating and liberating.
A God-virus is the best virus in the world to have,
and when it spreads redemptively and benevolently to those around us,
the works of the Father are made manifest.
Hallelujah and Amen.
