“Let me Love you”
This week Father God has been showing me how I haven’t really been enjoying him. I can tell you that so far, two days of really moving forward and positioning my heart in a place to let him love me, has caused me to feel like a whole new creation. I assume it can only go up from here. I don’t really know what’s going to happen next, but I can tell you he’s with me right now, smiling over me (: and I’m loving it.
So I encourage you to examine your heart, how are you treating God? Are you enjoying him? When you’re sitting around not doing anything, do you acknowledge his presence, day in and day out? Do you allow him to run errands with you and study for finals with you? Because I can guarantee, a perfect Father would delight in doing the smallest, simplest of things with you, as long as he’s with you.
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. 9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.”
– John 15:1-9
