While drinking my morning cup of coffee I have my daily devotional and early time with God. I like to start my day that way. This morning I felt especially energized and full of thankful love for our Father in heaven. Then after I prayed, expressing my love for my Savior, I thought, does this love declaration of mine really count. Was it really love talking or just a caffeine high? I’ve learned not to trust myself when it comes to my emotions. I can feel overwhelmed with love one moment and concerned if God is going to answer my prayers (the way I want) the next. Then I remember, it’s not my love that needs to be perfect anyway, it’s Christ’s love. It’s my involvement in his loving relationship with his Father that is real love. Thank you, Lord, for this understanding!
