Wednesday In The Word

As I write this there are piles of laundry on my kitchen table, the floor needs to be vacummed and the dogs are barking because they are hungry but I feel compelled to just sit down and write this Wednesday In The Word. Perhaps, your house or life feels like mine right now but God wants to speak to you as He did to me.

Lately, some interesting choices have come into my life. I have even laid awake at night trying to sort out motivations because I don't want to do any thing that God does not want me to do. I have lived enough life to know about the self inflicted chaos that comes from just choosing to do something without asking God what He would want me to do. Last week as I tossed and turned and prayed it was if God said to me, "Glenda do you love me?" Of course, my answer was,"yes." Then it was followed with this question, "Do you love me with your whole heart?" That answer was yes. Finally, I was given a peace that I had not known, it was if God was saying to me that this is all He wants.

The Bible says in Deuteronomy 6:4,5

Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God the Lord is one! And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all you might.

From the rooftop:

If you know Jesus all He ever cares about is your heart being His

If your heart is 100 percent His you are free and not bond by old stuff that used to hold you back

We have the will and mind to decide to love God with our whole heart

It is freeing to love God with our whole heart because He is in control of all things and not limited to the little boxes that we put Him in.

God's love for us is unending and has no boundaries. Can our love for Him be the same? He has places for us all to go, people for us to talk to and things for us to see that we can not even imagine. He wants to use us to bring people into a relationship with His Son, Jesus. He may take us to the most unexpected. exciting places if we just love Him with our whole heart and ask Him where He wants us to go.

I love you,
