One foot in front of the other
Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:
Sometimes you simply need to remember to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I don’t need you to be perfect, I simply need you to be. Will I invite you to grow? Of course! But I don’t require you to grow before I’ll do life with you. I do life with you and you can grow. The doing life together piece has got to come first, always.
And I am far more interested in your day to day journey through life that you realise. Why do you suppose I chose to take up residence inside of you? It’s not so that I can more easily explore with you those times you get it wrong, although yes I will do that – but always with love, never condemnation. I chose to do life this way, you in me and me in you, so that we can do life, all of life, together.
You delight me! From the funny little things that you are geeky about to the big things that make your heart come alive, all of you is fascinating to me and there is no moment in today when I switch off or tune out.
Hear me … you are never too much for me. There is nothing about you that is tedious or uninteresting to me. I saw you and knew you before I laid the foundations of the world and I declared you to be very good. My declaration has not changed!
Embrace how I see you. Allow yourself to stand tall and move into everything I created you to be and see and experience with me. Moment by moment, day by day, we are moving together more deeply into this relationship. And it happens simply by putting one foot in front of the other.
