Back from Redding III

This post has some pre-blog thoughts from November about loving and being loved by God.

Nov 5, 2010 

So I'm asking God to show me how much He loves me. I can't believe I've never asked to experience this from God- to experience His love for me every day.  To wake up and not even start the day without asking to see my Father God's love for me during the day.  I've ignored any need for this until now. I'm just gonna write it all down.

I was so impressed with people I met in Redding, and how good their relationship is with God.
I haven't actually beeen able to grasp it.  Today I suddenly realized it's not that  they have this really. really. good. good. relationship with God.  Its that they are absolutely, unashamedly in love with God!  

Its exactly like watching someone the day they realize they're in love with someone, and they find out the other person feels the same. Its a giddy, "I can't tell you how excited I am about this" expression on their faces and in their prayers and conversations.    It's being in love.  Wow.  It makes me want what they have. Who is this God that makes them so happy?  

But being giddily happy and in love?  Being touched and touching God in a close intimate way like someone who has met their soulmate?  God, my soulmate.  I can't say I've even considered giving Him access to my heart in that way...  Here we go!

I sure have a lot of words to say, and a lot of theory.   Right now, I'm ready to pitch it all.  
If we're in love with God, and stop for one person every day and love them, we'll be living lives with eternal, eternal value. 

1Cor 4:20 - "the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power."
