Now is the time to awaken in my love. My people perish because they do not know my love and acceptance. They are thirsty and dying when water flows freely around them. All they have to do is drink. Show them the water – the fountain is within. It flows freely for those who see it. Eyes will open when my love is proclaimed. Refreshing waters of the Spirit will flow forth. Declare my love and provision for my children, and they will drink from the fountain of life.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Bookworm.”
I read an awesome book by Leif Hetland titled “Baptism of Love”. It has really made me aware of how much we need the Holy Spirit’s help to truly love. Jesus didn’t say that they will know we are his disciples if we refrain from choking each other. Nor did he say to tolerate one another. He said to love one another as he loved us. A very difficult assignment if we are walking carnally.
To truly love others as Jesus did is not something humanely possible. At least for me, it is not possible without supernatural assistance. Leif describes in his book, how he received the baptism of love by the Holy Spirit, and how it radically transformed his life. Loving the “unlovable” requires such a baptism.
My personal prayer is to receive such a baptism of love. I also pray that the Church (every denomination) will be open to believe in and receive more of the fullness of God and the Holy Spirit. A supernatural love, a supernatural life – that is normal Christianity.
I’ve decided that I need to start writing again. At one time in my life, my dream was to be a writer. That dream was set aside, because I was encouraged to be more practical. So after many years of not writing anything except work related documents and a few Facebook posts, I am going to try to dust off those writer brain cells to see if they work. Naturally my grammar and sentence structure have suffered years of neglect, but practice and kind feedback will surely improve them. So my goal is to post at least one blog per week. As the name of my blog suggests, my overall subject is the great love of our Daddy God. My prayer is that some one will be encouraged, feel loved, encounter our savior at a deeper level, and be blessed by my simple thoughts that result when I spend time with Father.
