Jesus replied, “Loving me empowers you to obey my word. And my Father will love you so deeply that we will come to you and make you our dwelling place.” (John 14:23)
Relationship… relationship… relationship!!!
None of this daily walk has anything to do with ritual, or sacrifice, or anything else you can think of to somehow ‘get GOD to act!’
It happens (only happens) when we (finally) come to the place where we're sick and tired of trying to decide our own fate and being our own god!
It begins with an act of volition – an act of the will that recognises our situation, finally crumbles, gives in and discards our prideful stance. This action then reaches outward and upwards like a plume of smoke from the wreckage of our lives and whispers through the pieces of a shattered heart: “I can't do this anymore, Lord, I need you…!”
By (continuously) inviting GOD into your life, that simple act of giving over your broken and damaged ‘self’ promotes a cycle of events that will beautifully, wholly and systematically heal and transform you and everything in and around you ‘forever!’
Some things will be perfectly restored, and some things will be discarded – and all for the better!
And it all begins with accepting the invitation to a "Relationship"
