Oh God, I want to hear from You every day, and I want that for direction.
You think it’s wrong to want Direction? Wrong to ask for My guidance and leading? Wrong to want to stay on course, choose wisely? Make wise decisions? You feel bad about wanting that?
I guess I was taught that, that I am, that we are on our own. That we “graduate” beyond having You lead us, having You confirm for us.
Let Me get this straight. So the reward of a faith-commitment is, after a brief honeymoon period, to live separated, estranged, while proving your love and faithfulness by not wavering in your commitment. What kind of marriage is that? What kind of husband would I be, demanding that? I will tell you what kind—an abusive husband. A neurotic husband. No, I Am a faithful Husband, a faithful Father, a faithful Brother, a faithful Friend. The longing you have I put there. I want this more than you do. Mark this down:
More than you want to be right on time, I want this for you.
More than you want wildlife encounters, I want them for you.
More than you want magnificent light, I want that light for you.
More than you want stories to share, I want to share My stories with and through you.
More than you want increased creative flow in your life, I want increased creative flow in your life.
More than you want your legs healed and strong, I want your legs healed and strong.
More than you want to explore My beautiful world, I want to show you My beautiful world.
There is nothing you want that I don’t want more for you, want more to give to you.
All you need to do is prepare to receive. Not earn, not labor, not work harder, not prove yourself worthy. Receive.
