How can you or I give out God’s love, if we haven’t yet received it? You can’t give out what you don’t have.
One of the hardest things for a new Christian to do, is receive. We have been taught that giving only is Divine, but we should have been told that receiving is Divine too. Yes it is good to give & not expect anything in return. But how many of us, when a person tries to give us something, rejects their goodness, & we say, no thank you, that is not necessary?
This way of thinking and doing is what most Christians do, & what happens is we inadvertantly stop our Blessings from flowing to us, & not allowing someone else to be a Blessing. In God’s world, & in His right way, learning to give & receive, are two halves of a whole. This is the balance.
We should first learn how to receive from our Heavenly Father, & Jesus Christ. They will pour right into us their goodness, joy, peace, & their undying love for us! If you’re anything like me, you will receive it with love, joy, & tears. Their love is so overwhelmingly incredible, so different from the love we feel & have experienced here.
Even though it has always been there for us, if we don’t learn how to receive it, we won’t get it, because most of us are closed from all of the hurts we have endured through out our lives, & of course what we have been taught.
Like you, I also didn’t know how. Jesus had to explain it to me. ‘He’ said, I needed to open up myself, my heart, mind and spirit, like the flowers do for the sun in the morning, & take in all of His Goodness. When evil is around, close, like the flowers do when nightfall is approaching.
In the morning, when you are praying, I would like you to ask our Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Holy Name, to pour His love, & the love He feels for you, inside, until it is over-flowing. Open up your arms to Heaven, believe, trust & you will receive! Sit there for a few minutes, not saying anything, just receiving.
If you really trust & believe, something wonderful will happen, your stomach will become full, like you just ate a big meal, but in reality, God has filled you up with His love, & all that you will need today. 😀
Try it! Believe & receive. Now you to will be able to love wonderfully, & quite easily. One thing more before I go, when you have been filled with Gods love, & all of the other wonderful Goodies, unless you give it out, you will be in pain until you do.
So, in your own life, & out there in the big world, give out the good love, peace, joy, warmth, acceptance, help, etc. Be loved, & then you will be able to love, beautifully, just like God.
