In this month of heart talk I hear:
|God quietly whisper- "Be Mine"|
As some of the readings I am doing right now--
seem to connect in unusual ways---
always a God Surprise when that happens.
Never anything that I could ever master to connect myself.
Reading in Devotional Classics compiled by Richard Foster
in the works of E. Stanley Jones- about Receptivity and Response.
looking at Col 2:6-7
"As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord,
so live in him, rooted and built up in him an established by faith."
so live- activity
built up by him- activity
There is a rhythm to this
back and forth
|Hearts are made ready by LOVE|
Eveyln Underhill speaks about how these fruits of the Spirit -
joy and peace come into our lives-- not by our own striving--
but when we mind more about God than we do about ourselves...
not a small feat in our ego- centric world.
So my life is meant to give Him Glory-
to bring Him praise.
"My objective is unearthly delight in God's action
(in my life and in the world)
and the privilege of being caught up
into God's action- whatever the cost may be."
So it is woven with joy and peace-
His work in my heart.
"our total loving acceptance
of the deep action of God
through and beyond our small lives."
My open heart
Whatever the cost may be
