“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy 6:5 New International Version of the Holy Bible)
You were made by God, for God, and without Him there will always be an emptiness in your soul. If you’re looking for more to life; if you want to live a more meaningful life; give God access to your heart. Love Him! His love will expand to fill the void in your soul.
St. Augustine wrote, “I love you, Lord, not doubtingly, but with absolute certainty. Your Word beat upon my heart until I fell in love with you, and now the universe and everything in it tells me to love you.”
Your spiritual health affects your entire life. Pause today for a checkup. Are you loving God with all your heart, soul and strength? Only then will you walk in the full measure of His blessings.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I open my life to You. Creator, rule over my heart, fill every empty place in my soul. Let my obedience be a fitting response to your unfailing, unconditional love. Amen.
