With All Your Heart

Facebook Twitter Email

When my little granddaughter, Layla, or my tiny grandson, Ty,  lay their little heads on my shoulder and fall asleep, we are literally heart to heart.  The little heart beats its rhythm just inches from mine, pumping blood that can be traced back to me, passed on from my children.  Blood of my blood.  Heart of my heart. 

My abounding love flows from my heart to theirs.  It’s unexplainable and so very precious.  I would do anything for these cherished ones!

That thought causes me to think upon the love of God.  How much more does He love us?  How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!  1 John 3:1a

 He gave His only Son for us!  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16 

In return, He wants us to love  and serve Him with all our hearts.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Deuteronomy 6:5  Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.  Colossians 3:23.

Do you love the Lord with all your heart?  Have you shown Him lately how much you love Him?  Maybe it’s time for a heart to heart session with the Heavenly Father!
