Macrina Wiederkehr from A Tree Full of Angels
We live life so fully, always busy, that we often find ourselves too full ~ with no room left for God. Busyness can keep us from developing an intimate relationship with the Lord. To lay down the world ~ television, newspapers, work, activities ~ and sometimes even church activities is necessary to create time and space for God. Sadly, that is the way we usually go about it - an after thought.
Read 1 John 4:11-12
. . . if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and His love becomes complete in us - perfect love! 1 John 4:12 The Message
What a beautiful thought ~ Perfect Love is complete in us! The Holy Spirit needs a place to work and when our lives are too full, there is little room for His Presence.
- How does God reveal His Love to me?
- Can God offer Perfect Love to others through me?
- How much space does my life create for God?
Father ~ Come and dwell in me. It is time to clean house, throw out unnecessary clutter that robs my soul of time with You. Open hands and open ears, I ask You to fill me with holiness, speak to me with wisdom. Make me complete in You. Amen. ~ dho
