During the prayer, Jennifer asked us to tell God we loved Him, out loud. I’ve prayed that many times before, but could not remember the last time I said it out loud…if ever.
“I love you, God.”
Oh no, do I really love you? I mess up, I sin, I disobey. How can I say I love you?
“I love you, Jesus.”
Can you really love me, too? I am so unworthy.
“I love you, Holy Spirit.”
I know you love me. The Bible says it, and I believe it. And I love you too; I gave my life to you.
Yet I struggle with declaring my love, out loud, with the simple words, “I love you.” Each time I do, my heart hurts and I cry. I can’t put into words why, or describe what I sense is happening in the spiritual realm.
But with each declaration, I know I am being changed.
It’s like the truth of our relationship is making its way from my head to my heart.
I am humbled.
I am softened.
I am profoundly thankful.
Lord, I will continue to declare my love for you. Please keep changing my heart.
Question to Ponder: When is the last time you told God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit you loved them, out loud?
