Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:
Everything is working together for good. Everything. Every thing. Now that doesn’t mean that everything is going to be easy or that everything will always go your way, it doesn’t work like that and I never promised you that it would.
What I can and do promise you is that every thing, without exception, comes together and works for good. Understand that this is based on my definition of “good” and I can see the big picture. Also understand that I am good, I am for you not against you, and when trying things happen, whilst I work those things for good, I don’t will those things into your life.
Now consider this … yes there are occasions when I will correct you. This is what any loving parent does, you’re not going to let ones you love run around hurting others or themselves and not step in and course correct them. But also know this … my course correction is gentle and kind and loving. I don’t beat you with a stick!
I woo you with my love. I send the gentle breeze on a hot summer’s day to caress your cheek. I open your eyes to the wonder and delight all around you. The warm, cozy fire that tickles your senses, the belly laugh with a friend, good coffee on a dark winter morning. There is no end to the ways in which I lavish you with my love and I never tire of reminding you exactly Whose you are.
I need you to know that I am love. Before the world was created I loved. And I’m inviting you to live today slap bang in the centre of that love. Ask me what that looks like and let me help you love the people around you. There is nothing greater than love because I am love. Live in love and you live in me.
