Made to Go Deeper

10-21-13 Monday


Little children, let
Us not love in word or talk
But in deed and
In truth
1 John 3:18

Jesus, I’ve learned that the reason I sometimes get that hurt in my heart is I’m wanting to know you more but seeking something outside of you.  I’m made to go deeper in you, but I also need to be sure I’m abiding in you.  It’s okay for me to be living in peace.  If I rest in you (while living a life of active love) I will find myself seeing you clearer and knowing your ways better.  Help me find peace in you today. 

I kind of feel like I’m in a period of waiting for God’s will...but instead of being frustrated about that, I need to recognize that this is a powerful opportunity for my mind to be renewed, my heart to be opened, and my love for God to grow deeper.  Rest, peace, is not bad.
