Rejecting His Love All Over Again

Dear Brides, we are called to be His Bride, and He wants us to give Him all the burdens that keep us from giving all the attention and love to him. How can we hear Him or enjoy His presence, when we have our heads full of worries and stress? I know that is not easy, believe me I am passing through the same thing as you. When we think about our problems and start focusing on our circumstances, it is like we are rejecting His love all over again. We already know, that He has the power over all things, and He is in control of everything, He knows the end and has the best plan for our lives. We are still thinking too much and Loving Him less.

So let´s begin giving Him our burdens, because He wants to take from us, and let’s surrender to Him.

“He who has found his life will lose it,”He who has found his life will lose it,and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39

“He who has found his life will lose it,”He who has found his life will lose it,and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39

When we let go of the life that we think it is the best one, the Lord shows us the life He has planned for us.

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me” (John 15:4).

Without Him we cannot do anything.

“. . . do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” Matthew6:25, 33.

After our heart are full with His love, and all we want is spend all moments with Him, He will start giving things, that we never thought about.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5–6).
This verse always help me when I begin to think and to plan too much.

The Lord taught me that He is in control of everything. The more that I think about my situation, about the circumstances and problems around me, the more I will worry and fear. And it is true. The past two weeks were very difficult, because of my lack of surrender, I had many thoughts about things that I don´t have any control and can´t do anything without Him and His will. I need to trust Him to take care of it. I was so overwhelmed that I spent this two weeks struggling because I don´t know what to do. Also the enemy comes with his lies and temptations to take me away from the intimacy with the Lord. The time that I spent worrying was the time that I lost not trusting Him.

My worries are about my future, and what He has planned for me. Other thing that I was struggling with is apathy. I think because of my situation I am doing nothing for the Lord and this feeling was consuming me. I think that I am loosing opportunities that He may give me for fear of doing things wrong. I think that I am only sitting doing nothing for His Kingdom.

Two nights ago I had a dream, I was in front of a sea, with white clothes, a dress I think, and I looked at the sky and it was blue, and with white birds like doves flying above the place that I was standing. The sea was calm without waves, while looking upon the sky I heard a calm, gentle voice telling me to SURRENDER. So I said in my dream, if He is telling me to surrender, so I will do it, and I entered the calm sea, and I lay in the water and began to float with a smile on my face. I was surprised when I saw today’s lesson in Finding your Abundant Life, I was on Chapter 10 and it’s “Surrender”! So I believe that is a confirmation from the Lord, telling me to let everything go, and give everything to Him.

I want to surrender, and I will try not to think about my worries, and my future, but spend my time praising Him and loving Him. I know that the more we want to be closer to Him, the more intimacy we seek, the more the enemy will come with lies to take us away from the abundant life that the Lord has prepared for us. It is not that easy, but with God all things are possible, and with Him helping and guiding me I will be able to let go of all things that separate me from Him.

Dear Brides, we women worry about everything, when I was thinking about what to write here, it came in my mind a verse in Luke 10: 41-42 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Brides let´s be like Mary, and choose what is better, and Love Him. It’s that simple.

So many of us still are struggling with the feelings and with our circumstances. This book is helping me to understand about the relationship that the Lord wants to have with us. When I read the chapters, I can see that what the author felt is the same that I am feeling, and I believe that is the same as you too. I encourage you while reading the book to always SG, and ask Him with areas of your life He wants to change.
