Jesus, My Freedom-Redeemer

Michele Oleary

My Love.
Cross-Love of Jesus Christ.
By His Grace-Salvation, I have been set free.
My sin-shame placed on Him.
Cross-Freedom's bloodshed covered my sins.
Sinless Savior took my place.
Blood-Freedom, cleansed me white within.
Jesus Christ, My Forever Love.
Love, so real.
Raw and True.
The Truth-Keeper of the world.
He freed my pain.
The Cross set me free, so I can indeed live again.
Rejoice in His freedom from the Blood-Sacrifice.
Death no more because of the Blood-Shed of the Cross.
Freedom-Redeemer forever, death no more.
Darkness was defeated on that Victory day.
The Messiah-King.
Rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Lover of Freedom is always here.

Forty-three years this Easter Jesus whispered in my ear and called my name in an Alabama church. My sweet, little innocent heart swelled up and poured out. He stole my heart that day. He held it tender, loved me true. Pure-Love cleansed me with His crimson blood. Cross-Blood of Christ. I do not remember too much of that time of my life, but I do remember that day. Even at the age of eight, I knew I needed Him deeply.

My friend, I pray this is your story too, that the blood of Jesus has set you free. I pray you believe Jesus died for you, for me, for the world. He loves us more than His life. More than His own freedom. He took the cross, and He bore the scares for you and me because He loves us so deeply. He set us free from the life of hurts, shame, choices, the unseen, and not wanted. "Me too," as He hung on that rugged cross of sin. Sinless to sinful for you and me so we can be forever with Him. Find rest in Jesus. Find freedom in the Freedom-Maker. He is alive, and He will return. The Prince of Peace will gather His Love.

I am in love with another Man...(When God's Girls Say Yes)

Michele Oleary

Hi friends, I want to introduce March's God's girl: Michele O'Leary. It is time to show more of my heart to you. God asked me to share more of my path to purpose. His woo-calling on my weary soul and His freedom-call over me. He freed me from Satan's shackles. Walk with me as we "March into Purpose" together.

Love, Michele


My Love Song:

Heavenly-Love as Jesus reaches for me touches my chin and lifts it for eye to eye Heavenly-Connection. 

Soft-Love touch from Above-Love.

His eyes filled my broken-weary, torn-up parched soul.

Tired, weak heart. Sadness weighed heavy in my Spirit.

Stop fighting. 

Stop trying.

Stop the "would haves," should haves," and "could haves." I am your "Haves."

I "Have" all you need. All your hopes, promises, love, and desires.

With His touch, that is what I felt. That is what I knew.

Stop. Be still in the Still-Maker. 

The Freedom-Maker.

The Peace-Maker was calling for me to stop.

Calling me.

Desiring me.

Blossoming Heavenly-Love.

Deep Truth-Love.

My new Lover. Jesus.

He reminded me His Love-Blood is freeing.

His Love-Blood is Perfect to find Peace.

To find Purpose.

Cross-Christ Purpose.

Such love from my Love.

My Love.

Falling in deep love with the One who took on my cross for my Cross-Freedom.

He gingerly carried my broken heart. 

Gentle-Love was freeing. Is freeing.

Freedom.

Purpose-Freedom.

Pouring His purpose in my shattered heart.

His reach. 

His love soothed, softened and strengthened me.

My Love.

He showed me a path; a path paved out for a purpose.

His purpose.

His Cross-calling.

For me. A shattered heart-soul.

He proposed to me as a Groom to His Bride.

My Love proposed His purpose.

His Promise.

Love-Promise.

Love-Purpose for me.

Me, who had no path. No Purpose.

Soul-weary and longing for Holy-Healing Water for a purpose.

His Purpose.

I said yes to His Love-Promise of Purpose.

Ready. Reaching. Remedy.

Cross-Remedy in my Love.

The remedy has and will always be His Love.

His placement of purpose for my life.

Christ changed my heart. 

My Savior healed my heart.

He gradually removed my blinders, and I was finally set-free to see: Love.

Three years of looking and learning and loving had me fall deeply, head-over-heels in love with my Love.

Dare I say, "I am in love with another Man?"

Yes, I am! 

I am passionately in love with my Groom.

My Christ-Groom.

Jesus.

With His Love, my hand-in-hand walk of purpose blossomed.

I said yes to His Love-Request.

This God's girl is in love with another Man.

The Man.


Do you want to know what my purpose-calling is? You, my friend.

You. Jesus gave me you.

Why? Because He wants to call you His bride.

He wants you to love another Man too. 

Groom of Truth-Love.

His Love.

Your Christ-Lover.

Purposeful Love.

Pure-Love.

Christ-Freedom Love.

Have you found your Cross-Purpose? He wants you to seek it. Will you walk with me the next three weeks as I share about my Christ-March to purpose? Allow God to tenderly remove the "false lies" from the "False Whisperer" as He marches with you to purpose. 

~Love, Michele

 

Greater Love

Michele Oleary

"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 (NAS)

Very early in life, the thought or hope of having true friends started to diminish. 

Real friends.

As I reflect back I can remember being bullied as early as 5th grade. 

Mean spirited, ugly, a "tearing up the heart" kinda bullying.

Emotions of "not being seen or not good enough" sunk deep within me and cemented a negative footprint of friendship on my soul.

Negative, gut-punching thoughts of how I felt I was created just shattered me as a person. It scattered me, my emotions and my outlook. The ugly, skinny-girl, the short-haired freak. Boyish looks are what reflected back to me.

By others.

By me.

Crushing emotions wounded my heart and soul and spirit; they sunk in and led me to a lack of trust in Christ. Of others.

The teetering of sadness and loneliness stifled my growth as a little, precious God's girl.

I couldn't understand why Jesus wanted to be my greatest friend when I felt like an unwanted mess inside and out.

He sought to be my...

Biggest fan.

The one who desired to cheer me on, and cherish me. 

He continued to remind me that He loved me so much He died for me.

The thought of Him laying His life down for me sometimes confused me.

Hanging on the cross for me and taking on my sin for...

Relationship. 

Friendship.

Cross-ship.

He wanted me to grasp a hold of His Holy hand for His great love, His greatest love.

Pure-Love.

Cross-Love.

Nothing more precious or priceless than the Cross-Love of His friendship.

Honestly. For many years I didn't believe the "real" love of Jesus and His friendship.

Have you ever walked in these sad, sorrowful and sinking-emotional shoes? 

Your heart questioning the Greatest Friendship? The Greatest Love? 

Oh, that nasty Satan looking to devour us. 

His darkness weighs heavy on us.

The "dark-bully" roaming around and desiring nothing more than to detract and destroy godly friendships here on earth for you and me.

His devious cunning ways wanting to stop heavenly, healthy relationships with our Greatest Friend who created us to pour His love over us each day!

But, oh the hope and love of Christ that shatters and tatters the lies of the "dark-bully."

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (NIV) (Italics added)

God gave. Pause. Sit in this. Soak it in. 

God gave...

Jesus, our greatest Love. The greatest Gift.

Yes, Jesus loves you. 

He longs for you.

He looks for you.

He laid His life down for you.

For me.

So freeing.

Cross-Freedom.

Christ-Freedom

"You may never know that JESUS is all you need, until JESUS is all you have." --Corrie Ten Boom

Jesus, our great love. Our greatest need. Our best friend.

Amen, my friends. For you and for me. 

~Love, Michele
