It's Sunday night here, but here's how my day started:
9 "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I
chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
...& the prayer that was laid on my heart with it:
"Oh Lord, help us to open our eyes, our ears, our hearts, our spirits to Your Love.
You are closer than our next breath–always–and yet we can’t or don’t seem to remember that.
Lord, forgive our willfulness, our forgetfulness.
Give us hearts that remember your love for us.
Give us spirits that are aware of Your Spirit & wills that choose obedience.
Help us to remain in Your presence & not get distracted so easily.
For it’s in You that we find true Joy, true Hope, & divine Rest for our weary souls.
Help us to remain in Your love & walk in the words You taught us to pray..."
May this part of His Word & these words be a blessing to your heart.
