Day 1: Dear God


FIRST THINGS FIRST!

DEAR GOD,

It is early morning, and the sun is still asleep,

but I am wide awake.

And so are YOU.

YOU always greet me in the morning,

as if you are waiting for me.

I get excited to SIT with YOU.

Sometimes you are so QUIET

that I question if YOU are even here.

Like right now.

The QUIETNESS is deafening,

so that my mind starts to wander

to try to create something

to make YOU come more alive in this moment.

But now,

all I hear is

LOVE.

PERFECT LOVE

that does not FORSAKE me.

PERFECT LOVE

that LOVES me

as I am in this very moment.

PERFECT LOVE

that takes me deeper into YOUR LOVE

that is a QUIET LOVE,

as it is a PERSONAL LOVE

that is tailored to me

because YOU tailored me.

But not only for me,

but for EVERYONE.

YOUR LOVE

does not discriminate.

It is for ALL

because

YOU LOVE ALL

with

A LOVE that

LOVES PERFECTLY.

For

YOU are patient. YOU are kind. YOU do not envy. YOU do not boast. YOU are not proud. YOU are not self-seeking. YOU are not easily angered. YOU keeps no record of wrongs. YOU do not delight in evil YOU rejoice with the truth YOU always protect. YOU always trust. YOU always hope YOU always persevere YOUR LOVE never fails.

(based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8).

FIRST THINGS FIRST.~
