Hello Authentic Lovers!
I hope each and every one of you had a great Thanksgiving holiday. As you already know, mine started off awkward but it slowly got better as the ice was broken and the family began to enjoy one another. I value family in the same way I value my faith, it’s everything to me. My faith and family is everything to me.
I was talking to God this morning ( some call this prayer, I call it a morning chat 😉 ), anyways…we were talking and I realized how much I have changed other the last few weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved God. The fact of the matter is, my love was stunted over the years. It was like I reached a peak in my love towards Him and then my love began to plateau…. I hate it when it seems like things are not growing, like I’m not growing..especially in my love for Him. So lately my prayer has been to grow in my love for God; I want to be passionately, head-over-heels in love with Him. There is something about being passionately in love, this type of love takes your breath away and you enjoy every moment spent with that person. This is the love I wanted renewed in my love relationship with God. Sometimes when we are in relationships with people, our love changes and what once was exciting become mundane, we lose the essence of being passionate about one another- passionately in love. Some of us become Christians and we take this mundane love into our relationship with God, we lose our passion.
I don’t want to ever lose my passion, my passion for Him. I want my heart to always be lit with the fire of His Spirit, with the compassion of His Son. I want my love to be passionate towards Him.
I come to realize friends that God’s love is passionate towards me and as we dance together in this love affair, I find my self falling more and more in love with Him. He is passionate towards me, so I seek to be passionate concerning Him. He is my Passionate Love. If you would like to experience this love, you can. God is not choosy when it comes to love, He loves everyone with as much passion and grace. He desires to love you in this way…get to know Him and He’ll take time to know you. He’ll love you for all of eternity- passionately.
Until next time,
