The earth is filled with notes of love from God. He has placed them all around us; His deepest longing in events and tangibles.
If I pinch off the conduit of love for myself, then I can’t be a vessel of delivery to bring it to another. I am called to love myself and to love others.
God has given ME to myself for a purpose. We all go to bed and rise every day with the GIFT of our self. So am I to be my own best friend? I believe so!
“Hey, I am going to remodel my house while I am preparing for my daughter’s wedding!” Yes, anxiety is a focus problem.
We worship with our focus, fear or love. We will worship what we believe has power, even things we think it have more power than God.
Our giftings can be twisted & used against us if we don't remain dependent on God with them. For instance, a natural gift of observation can be perverted into damning focus.
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for his friends, but is being a living sacrifice include neglecting myself?
The difference of love and fear is simply life and death. Perfect love connects us to God and His Life, fear places barriers up to His Life
So many work to overcome rather than letting the Overcomer conquer in us but life is impossible if it’s managed and manhandled by us we must live dead.
Jesus doesn’t shrink from my fallen, sinful condition. Quite the contrary, He longs to be invited inside, in order to eradicate it.
Immanuel is God with us. Our lives, in their totality, are intended to be lived with Him. We are to take Him into every living situation of our lives as He lives and I witness.
Parables are intended to connect our awareness by plugging it into God with us reality. Jesus communicates in our earthly understanding.
