Love and Communication

If you are really in love with someone, or have family or friends that you love, you want to have the best communication with them that you can have. You want to talk and find out what is in their mind and heart, to really learn their hopes and dreams and really know what is inside of them… speaking for myself here but assuming that everyone else feels the same. Perfect love desires communion, the sharing of life together and it cannot be expressed from a distance. There is an old saying that “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” I have not found that to be true. I find that distance gives you space to make a new life with other people, at first you may miss the one who is gone but then you start filling in the empty space the way a wound heals on your body. I cut my thumb very seriously with the cut starting from the nail all the way around to the back of it. With the flesh standing wide open there was some kind of yellow stuff, which I assumed was the ice cream that I love (fat), it was terrible and awful to see. I went to the emergency room and had it sewn together but the cut was so crooked and torn that he didn’t do a good job of putting it together, but you know what? Now that scar is barely visible, that’s what I’m talking about. You think you are going to always miss someone but before long you get used to being without them. Are you thinking that I have lost my ever lovin’ mind here? What has this got to do with any kind of devotion or making you feel better? Well hang on a minute here is the point…

1 John 1:3 We saw it, we heard it, and now we’re telling you so you can experience it along with us, this experience of communion with the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

To have communion with a person you need to be close and that applies to your relationship with God!

Into our emptiness, Jesus brings fullness and completion (Colossians 2:9-10)

Into our deficit, Jesus brings supply (Philippians 4:19)

Into our death, Jesus brings life (Ephesians 2:1,5)

Into our separation, Jesus brings reconciliation (Romans 5:10-11)

Into our imperfect love, Jesus brings his perfect love (1 John 4:10) when you know that God loves you completely then you can follow the advice of

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I woke this morning dreaming that I was saying to someone, “I don’t want advice I need instruction”, and that is what I am trying to give you, instruction to stay close to the Father and the Son by praying, which is just another word for conversation with God…or as I like to say, just conversate with them, daily!

 

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
