I want to fall in love.
No I am not talking about human love. Yes, that is a good idea too. And that is happening in God’s time.
HOWEVER, I want to fall in love with Jesus again.
Yes, I do love Him. I do live for Him as best as I can.
But sometimes we go “through the motions” if you know what I mean?
I want to “romance” God again (in a sense.)
Revelation 2 reminds us:
“I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”
I sometimes need to remind and ask myself: Why do I do what I do? Why do I serve Jesus and care for His people?
Why do I live my life the way I do?
And so often I fall short from the original reason. I love Jesus.
YES, this guy, me and my imperfections…’I remember a time, my First Love; when we were invincible together.’
I want that again. And I know You are waiting for me…
God, teach me again, to put all the love I have for YOU into all I do.
From work to play to speech and to actions.
