Have you ever prayed for the love of God to be manifested? To be felt by you? While you may know mentally that you are loved and accepted it may seem that the heart yearns for it to be felt. It may feel empty.
Have you ever consider taking time to reflect how God uses people to fill that love? That God causes people to move or do acts of caring for you?
Have you been vulnerable and the people with you responded with grace and love?
Have you ever made a list of all the possible good you are experiencing despite the present challenges?
These things we need to ask ourselves, these thing we need to ponder. How is the love of God manifested in your life?
Do we have him in a box? In our set of expectations? Because these can possibly blind us from seeing how He is manifesting His love and care?
What else can hinder? Would it be possible we are nurturing anger, bitterness and un-forgiveness? how much more is greed and pride?
If we truly desire to experience His love, it takes a humble heart to ask for it, have it His way and show the potential hinderances and act on obedience.
While there are situations of extreme, while you might be in, it can never negate the presence of His Love.
Sometimes, We are more hard on ourselves… the subconscious words we accept and say to ourselves. This can be “I am are not worthy”, ” I am a bad person”, ” I am filthy” “I am ugly”. and so many more self declarations.
Whatever it may be, My prayer for you is that 2022 will be your year of knowing more and experiencing the love of God in Christ.
