“I have shown love to you,” says the Lord, but you say, “How have you shown love to us?”
Father I’m sorry for taking You for granted, for having expectations of blessings, and not being humble enough to practice patience. I apologize for not giving You what I expect in return. I love You Father and I’m so grateful to be Your child.
I want to please You. I want to be the best steward, the most humble, committed and obedient ambassador. I want to express and reflect Your love each day. I want to show my gratefulness for every breath I take. My life, my reality, my experiences are only made possible because of You. Thank You Father. Amen.
We must stop asking God what He’s done for us and start giving of ourselves as He expects. We are to be the examples we hope to see in the world. We are to be the paradigms, and from that we will find doors, windows, cubbies, and spaces of opportunity open for us.
We will find our paths become less rigorous because we will stop leaning into our own understanding and simply walk where, when, and how God instructs us. Our doubts and fears will diminish.
Our crooked walk will straighten. Our turned head will be realigned. Our eyes will be refocused. Our minds will be sharp and clear. Our tongues will not be forked. We will not question our Father, we will instead just say, “yes Father I will obey”.
Let us start counting our blessings and not counting down the days of expectancy for blessings. Let us stop waiting for what’s next, and start living for what’s now. Start expressing God’s love and watch how it flows back to you. Enjoy your Friday.
Love you all,
