Alone With Love

God is love.

It is exactly Who He is and what He does.

Love invokes so many feelings; some great and some…not so great. Today I want to talk about the awesomeness of God’s love and how being alone with Him can send me deeper in love.

Alone with love is being alone with God.

In the quietness of a moment.

{after Jesus fed the five thousand}…
And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. – Matthew 14:23 (NKJV)

I’m not saying that what I do as a home-educating mom comes close to the task of feeding and ministering to five thousand people. But on top of the role of being wife and mom, adding the devotion that it takes to educate requires that time of being by myself to pray and being alone with Love.

Every day I need the warmth of being alone with Love.

I too often feel like a failure and a let down to my children.

Marked times of being away from love too long wildly jump up and down trying to get my attention!

  • When I don’t ask for God’s guidance in planning lessons. God may want to show a specific child that extra special nugget in the study that I pushed aside.
  • When I don’t pause long enough to really listen to my children. I quickly forget that my Daddy intently listens to me and I should extend the same courtesy to my children.
  • When I’m easily irritated because I haven’t gotten my coffee and devotional finished. It’s my own fault that I didn’t get up when the clock alarm sounded.
  • When I criticize and belittle myself for not doing and being enough. Love does not condemn and has no fear.

Love says that I am loved; deeply loved by the Father.

Love says that I’m called to proclaim Him with and through my life.

Love shows kindness and easily forgives.

Being alone with Love gives me a chance to find out all of those things in the Living Word; to educate, correct, and fall deeper in love with Love.

Being in His Word is not something we “do.” It is something we live. We need to let His Word transform us.” – Karen DeBeus, Called Home

Love transforms our thoughts and hearts. It turns us to face the truth of His compassion for each and every one of us.

Allow yourself the time to be Alone with Love. God will speak to you in exactly the way you need from day to day.

If you need a great place to start, I recommend the Monthly Scripture Memorization Challenge that is available here at Managing Your Blessings.

Abide with Him and He will abide with you. (John 15: 1-8)
