It is Hooge, so Hooge!
It is Hooge, so Hooge!
This morning as I sat down to write, my mind was blank.I thought, “Hmmm….”, then nothing.I was studying God’s word and praying.What should I write about today?What should I share?I continued to pray and ask God to reveal a story I could share with you.Then...I began to chuckle.
Last week, my granddaughter, Macie was staying with me.She loves for me to tell her stories.She will say, “MeMe, tell me stories about Momma or Aunt Jessica or Uncle Colby.”We have done this for years and I feel that I have exhausted every funny and silly story I can remember.Well, last week we were studying her spelling words.We were going down the list when we came to the word – huge.So I called it out to her, “Huge”.Then I began to smile.She never misses a thing and asked what I was smiling about.
I told her that when her Uncle Colby was little he had difficulty saying the word huge.Instead, he would pronounce it hooge.It was so sweet, I could hardly correct him.He would be so excited and would proclaim, “That truck is hooge, Momma!It is hooge, so hooge!!!!”Macie thought that was so funny.She laughed out loud and talked about it throughout the day.Each time it came up we both laughed and shared a moment of just pure joy.
So, as I sat this morning contemplating what I should write, a smile came upon my face.I could envision Colby, with his hair so blonde it was white, running up to me and excitedly proclaiming, “It is hooge!”And as I held God’s Word in my hands…His revelation of who He is; His promises to be fulfilled; His love that is bigger than we can comprehend…I thought, “He is hooge!His blessings are hooge!His love is hooge!It is hooge, so hooge!”
Today and every day we need to remember the enormity of our gift our gracious Heavenly Father has offered to us.We need to remember it is worthy of our excitement!It is so big – how can we not joyously proclaim it to the world?
God loves me so.He loves me so much and He desires for me to love Him in return.He is available to me.He wants me.His love is completely and totally unconditional.It is hooge, so hooge!
Jesus – God’s only begotten son – came, lived, served, and died for me so that I might spend eternity with Him.He chose to bear my sin, to pay my debt.He died for me.It is hooge, so hooge!
The Holy Spirit is with me.He lives inside of me and He is my helper.He is the only hope I have to keep from totally messing up my life.He whispers and prompts me.The more time I spend in God’s word the better I can hear these promptings.It is hooge, so hooge!
God created me with a purpose.I am not a mistake.His plan is best. His way is best.He has placed within me gifts and talents that He desires to use for His glory.All I have to do is say, “Yes!”It is hooge, so hooge!
We can trust Him!He is ours and we are His.We are His beloved, His Masterpiece, His child.We can trust Him – with our life, with our fears, with our day, with our future, with everything!
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord His trust.” Psalm 40:4
“Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust.I will not fear.What can flesh do to me?”Psalm 56:3-4
“Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him, God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:8
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.Trust in the Lord forever, for in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.”Isaiah 26:3-4
God…His love for us; His grace poured out on us; His provision for us; His purpose for us…it is hooge, so hooge! Let's celebrate it today!
