Everything always comes back to Him since He is the underpinning of life. It is where I inevitably end up, after wandering for a while spiritually. One of the best things about Him is that He watches me as I’m diverted and He doesn’t leave His spot. He stays true. But even more unbelievable, is the effort He puts into reeling me back in.
“Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.” Hosea 2:14
I am a woman who recognizes His Romance, but when my spirit is distant, it fails to appreciate it. He, though, does not have any reservations about expressing how He feels about me:
“The LORD appeared to (me) in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
How can I not “get” how devoted He is to me? When I reflected on this, I had to admit that it always stems from misperception. My spiritual comprehension is distorted because I am perceiving life from the wrong angle. I’m looking at it with finite vision and His version of my life is infinite. This last time I wandered off, it was triggered by a desire to have certainty and confirmation here on earth. Yet, He isn’t of the earth. He wants to keep me close and He needs me to stick with Him even when it is hard. I’ll never remain with Him if I keep looking to this world to give me what I can only receive from Him. He draws my heart back with His Words:
“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34
He knows what I need to hear. He has me constantly in His thoughts. If I set mine on Him, He coaxes me back to Him.
“I will give them a heart to know me, for I am the LORD; and they will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with their whole heart.” Jeremiah 24:7
He has every intention of completing His Love in me. I won’t experience it and be fulfilled by it ,though, if I stray.
Please keep me constant, Lord. Don’t ever stop calling me back. I can’t promise that I will be constant all the time. You know how I am. You can give me the heart to want to and that is what I’m asking You to do. I don’t want to hurt You and I know it must when I intermittently abandon us. I will never get through this life without you and in the core of my heart I know this. All of what I have chased outside of you has been worthless. When I return, our reunion is so sweet. That’s when it is so obvious that it should always be You & Me.
Love Always ♥?????❤?
