Food For Thought….Loving Jesus


This needs to be what we wake up and tell Jesus. Realizing that outside of Christ there isn’t anyone who could love you more fully, truly, perfectly and completely. We are told from when we are little that the great adventure of our lives will be to find our sole mate. So we go searching. We roam. We travel. We experience. We get hurt. We injure others and crawl back inside our shells and decide that this great adventure we’ve heard so much about is like a treasure map only the gold is nowhere to be found. But it’s because we are using the wrong map. We’ve been using hollow devices from earthly planning and its left you empty.

Today, if you will, look in the mirror. Take a moment and look yourself right in the eye and ask yourself “what am I looking for?” You may feel odd. You may not want to do it. But at some point in your life I hope you realize that Jesus is looking directly at you saying,….”I love you.” And he is waiting for you to return that love.

I don’t know how your journey has been this far friend. If it has been anything like mine then I bet at times you questioned what the purpose actually was. Can I tell you something? Jesus loves you today as He did when you were formed. Each move you make, tear you shed and joy you experience are His arms holding you. So Lord, we reach out to you today,…we want to fall more in love with you than we ever have before! Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”
