It’s important to do things we love. It’s important to make sure we’re engaging in activities we love—and to make sure we’re doing them on a regular basis.
Specifically, you are made to love to do certain things, be passionate about certain things. Whether it’s the companionship of good friends around you as you share a meal around a fire, a walk outside when the wind is blowing the leaves on an autumn day; learning; making an argument; defending people who need justice; healing and caring for people who are sick; reading great stories of adventure and challenge; writing great stories of adventure and challenge; living great stories of adventure and challenge; sewing quilts; giving blankets to people who are cold; cooking for people who are hungry; listening to the beauty of a symphony; writing a symphony . . .
There is no right and wrong answer. But it is important for you to know what these things are. Who you are and who you are created to be, by God, is something He wants each of us to discover.
Filling up on God’s love
Because doing what we love is how we experience Him.
Because doing what we love is one way we worship Him. Because doing what we love is how we experience God’s love for us. It is how God restores us. It is how His love fills us and then overflows onto the people in our lives we are made to love . . For example, our spouses.
In this podcast we tell you what to do next, after creating the rough draft of your “what I love” list. You don’t want to miss the marriage tool we find most vital to a Holy Entangled marriage.
This week’s challenge:
Write down your list, take it to God, test it against what you know about scripture, read through it with your spouse, and have them do the same for you, if he or she is willing.
Begin to adopt your “what do I love” list as your roadmap–and begin living it. What do you have to lose? This is fun stuff. We aren’t asking you to do something you hate. We’re asking you to do stuff you love! So don’t wait! Get going!
Resources on filling up on God’s love:
We’ll be adding suggestions here soon. And we’d love to hear your ideas! What do you do to get filled up on God’s love for you?
And could we ask you for a favor? We love it if you’d head over to iTunes and rate the show. This is key to getting this message—about the truth of Jesus—into the hands of the people who need it. We’d be grateful for that.
Thank you all so much for listening . . . and we’ll be back next week.
