TRIED AND TETHERED

TRIED AND TETHERED
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 Exhilarated. Energized. Revitalized.
This is how Christ wants us to live and love.
Christ's love for us and our experience with Him is to manifest itself in a joy unspeakable and in a curiously, radiating confidence unshakeable.
The more we witness of His faithfulness, the more fearless He wants us to become in mens' presence.
The more we witness of His resurrection power, the more confidently He wants us to move in this present hour.
Christ confronted and defeated our sin, fear, failure, loss, and every imaginable and conceivable demon, my friend, in order that we might experience fulness of life here on earth.
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life; and that they might have it more abundantly."
John 10:10
He didn't just say this ... He meant this.
Think on these realities:
+Christ's victory makes us victorious 100% of the time as we move in Him.
+Christ's life guarantees us a 100% success rate as we move in tune with His Spirit.
+Christ's promises guarantee us with every provision possible until He comes again or we return to Him.
Christ's love propels and transports us to new heights and new places,
new folks and new faces,
new mercies and tender graces.
All this in Christ;
 ought this not to phase us?
Hmmm ...
Nothing can be taken, robbed, removed, or thwarted of God's plan and blessing for our lives. The more we tether ourselves to the divine realities He provides us with, the freer and more liberated our lives become in response.
We begin to love God in substantial ways,
 unconcerned what others think,
unperturbed by how others act.
We simply love unashamedly, unbiasly, and whole-heartedly the object of our affection.
This is the look of the regenerated soul.
Christ's glory is our main objective, no man preventing, and His love changes us.
We are not who we were but becoming more like Him day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment.
Tried and tethered ...
To love God, therefore, in original, non-traditional, and even unorthodox ways supports a life steeped in true adventure and intimacy with Him and speaks to nothing but reflective gratitude and soul servitude.
Experience and live out true joy in Him,
in all of its differentness, distinctness, and realized beauty.
Dare to live out a regenerated life.
Stay long with the Savior and love Him hard.
Love the life you live ...
You've only one.
