As I stand in the middle of thousands of people it gives me question? As people shove and push to get a better view at Disney it gives me pause to wonder if they would do the same for Christ? If Christ was the one speaking, instead of Mickey, would these people do whatever it took to get closer? To see and hear better? As I pray that prayer in the midst of everyone I am reminded that one day the eastern sky will open. He will come riding on his white horse. Then like today everyone will pause. Everyone will stop. Everyone will listen. Only that day it will be the Lord of Lords… The Prince of Peace… and not Mickey Mouse. Hallelujah!!!
As we sat in a circle I listened as each person told what they expect… what they get from their spouse. When it came to me I simply said I would never set expectations on my beautiful wife and I don’t need anything from her but love. I would never put that burden on my wife to provide me with happiness. That has to come from God. So is our relationship with Christ. When we live, from the place in our heart, that was made for unbridled love, then rules and expectations are not needed. They come naturally. Learn to live with others, as well as Jesus, not from a place of rules but a place of love.
I Love You
