Love Well

Abba,

I bless you for your love,

and trust in the person and power of your Son Yeshua the Messiah.

Grant me the grace to remain united with him,

and him with me.

Help me to love well,

because love is from you,

and everyone who loves has you as their Father,

and knows you.

You are love,

and you showed your love among us all

by sending your only Son into the world,

so that through him we might have life.

Love is not that I loved you,

but that you loved me and sent your Son

to be the sacrifice for my sins.

This is how you loved us,

let me love others as you loved me,

remain united with us,

and let our love for you be brought to its goal in us.

Thank you for your Spirit

that has drawn me to you

and testified of your love and your Son

in my heart.

I’ve come to know and trust the love you have for me,

and I love now only because you loved me first.

Please Abba, continue to expose and cast out all fear,

as there’s no fear in your love.

Refine and purify this heart with your fire,

mature me in love,

and let me love you and those around me

as you have loved me and called me.

I bless you Abba.

Amen.

My Love

You are my Love,

let me reflect your presence and light,

like the fair moon that reflects the sun,

your music and whispers,

like the ear drum that gently stirs to delicate sounds,

your beauty and joy,

like a diamond that delights to scatter your beams of light,

your peace and gentleness,

like zephyrs that move lapping waves on the shore.

Your love is all around,

you spoke and brought forth life by your Word,

infused all creation with your power and Spirit.

All creation adores you and sings praise to you,

and waits in bated breath for the children of God to arise.

I have the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,

I’m at rest in your love,

wholly alive, fully me,

beloved, enjoyed, delighted in,

to love you, love myself, and love others.

I arise to answer your call O Lord,

to be yours, and to discover for all eternity,

the riches of who you are.

You are mine.

Amen.

Love Is The Goal

Lord,

I praise you for new beginnings,

where love is the goal,

loving you by bringing all of me,

exposing every piece of me to your grace

and your unending waves of mercy and kindness

breaking over me…

enabling me to rise again and again,

to see by your Spirit through the eyes of my heart,

cleansed continually of sin, wounds, and lies,

now open to the beauty in others,

that you’ve placed as a treasure to seek.

I bless you as you call me forth,

realizing now I never had to be perfect to answer,

and I rise from a long, barren wilderness,

leaning on you, my Beloved,

forgetting what is behind,

and pressing on towards the goal of heavenly love,

sweet intimacy with you Lord.

I love you,

Amen.
