This was His response…
“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all of your soul, and with all of your mind. This is the first and the greatest commandment.”
I am always taken back by the simplicity of His answer. With so much going on in the world, so many wrongs, so many opportunities for us to do better, be better… His response was easy… simple. His words take our eyes, and thoughts off of ourselves and puts them on God..
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you so much that you made it easy for us to know what Your heart’s desire is for each of us… That to love You with all of our heart, soul and mind is enough… How I pray for us to feel safe in your presence, as we learn to surrender our doubts and fears and truly come before you empty-handed… searching to know you better, while leaving our stress, fears, and desires at your feet trusting that in return we will be filled with Your peace…Thank you that we can trust in Your love and goodness.
“And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus..”
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
Are you struggling with something in your heart that is making it hard for you to believe God cares about you?
Please, if you answered, Yes, take a moment today, or tonight, and write it out to God.. give Him your every word, fear and doubt and ask Him to enter the situation. He doesn’t want you to do life alone.. He ferociously cares about you.
Read Psalm 23
Be Blessed, Dear Friend…
Live in Love :)
