Today, I’ve decided to try something new. I am linking up with The Gypsy Mama for the Five Minute Friday. I am taking just 5 minutes to write what’s on my heart, to tell you what God is up to, without worrying about perfection. No editing, to back tracking, no writing it on paper before I put it up here. Just words freely flowing …
Today’s Prompt: Growing
I’m growing up … and it’s painful at times … but I can’t help thinking It’s about time!
I’ve been a believer for 26 years and I’m just now learning things that I wish I had known since I was nine ~ since Jesus first loved on me and pursued me to Him.
I’m learning … eucharisteo … receiving a gift, giving thanks for the gift, and living a life of joy … in ALL things.
I’m learning … God talks to me ~ I can hear Him!
From Hearing God by Dallas Willard:
“When … two become one, they identify with one another, expanding their selves and their world. The beloved, who both loves and is loved, does not want to order the lover about; instead the beloved desires that the lover understand what is needed so that no orders are necessary. In this union of souls – in the conscious delight and rest in one another that is the highest and most exalted relationship possible between two persons – it is not right for one person to always tell the other what to do. And so it is in our union with God, a person both loving and beloved. He does not delight in having to always explain what His will is; He enjoys it when we understand and act upon His will. Our highest calling and opportunity in life is to love Him with all our being.”
I am His beloved – He is my beloved.
