I wonder what the Lord thinks sometimes when He sees us and what would He want to say. These were the thoughts that came to my mind:
I know your life. You are sometimes bored with work and the monotonous schedule; every day is Ground Hog Day. Often there is no spark; no joy. There is no fire in your love; no excitement. That is not what I created you for; not what I have for you. Do you think I would leave the perfection of heaven – would I have come so you could have an uneventful, boring life? I came so that you would have life to the full! Not full of busy, schedules, food, people; full of joy in me!
You will not find that fullness in your spinning life with five minute devotions. As a dating couple cannot get enough of each other, that is how I want you to want me. I long to see your face eager to meet with me; excited to be with me. Clearing your schedule to be with me.
Why would that bring me joy? Because I know that in my presence is fullness of joy. That’s what you really want, isn’t it? To be joyful? Here it is…it’s me. Come and spend time with me so I can give joy to you.
