As we walk with Him, He knows our heart, sees our work, understands that we try our best and sees our fervor for living right.
He sees us how we are steady in faithful in meeting with Him each day, it has become a natural part of the day.
Maybe too natural.
One of the things we try not to do is have too much of a time of reflection of where our heart stands in relation to passion. Our minds actually have moved forward but our heart has skipped a few beats as somehow our daily walk has become predictable and we like it like that – its become comfortable.
The adventure is maybe not so much so, we have stopped looking for the gems and nuggets, the new experiences, the desire to be more like Him. Is it fair to say that even though we have the markings of a mature follower of Jesus that in truth we have become stale. We know so much that its easy for us to pass through the eyes of the Church but in the eyes of Jesus we seem to Him to be falling away.
But He sees life in the things we still fight against – the doctrines of this world that would take people away from Him. With that He can send His Holy Spirit into our lives to fill our cups, break open our hearts and move that heart to be passionate once again to search for Him – to find another reason to love Him, meet with Him, ask Him questions so we can know a little bit more.
This is something to be conquered – our motivation is being in the paradise of God. When I step into that garden, I look forward to eating of the tree of life.
