Day 18 – Thursday, February 20

ReadAnd you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30

Remember … You are love and You manifested Your love through Jesus who loves with all that He has. I praise You today as the lover of my soul!

Respond … Forgive me for slipping into a spiritual drought sometimes. I lose my focus, and I forget I am to love You with all that I have. I am so very sorry.

Reflect … I can never thank You enough for loving me the way You do, Jesus. Thank You for Your extravagant love!

Renew … Help Your people – the church – love You the way we are supposed to. Help us really know Your love, and help us cling tightly to it and never pull away. Then help us show Your love to others and point them to Your Son, in whose name I pray, amen. 

If you have never known the power of God’s love, then maybe it is because you have never asked to know it –

I mean really asked, expecting an answer.  – Frederick Buechner
