5.11.22: Love (#1)

Context: Last Saturday I had breakfast in bed to celebrate a whole day ahead with no planned medical appointments. Whilst saying the morning Office I took my meds slowly, one at a time, in order to keep my concentration as high as I possible. After the Office, I found myself whispering this brutally honest little prayer:

You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength (Mark 12:30; NLT). 

I love you, Lord (Psalm 18:1; NIV).

I love you, Lord;
I love you,
But I don’t expect your love, Lord,
In return,
Because I don’t expect this, Lord,
Of anyone.

I love you, Lord,
And I believe
That you accept
My love.
That’s all I ask, Lord God,
For it’s enough.

We love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19; TIB).

Those who gathered a lot had nothing left over, and those who gathered only a little had enough (2 Corinthians 8:15; NLT).
