I am the magnet of all-consuming love, pulling and wooing you into the center of my indescribable glory and presence. You fight and resist me because of the fear of what might happen to you and whether I can be trusted. If you knew the short distance to the freedom from the bondage of this world, it would astound you. My destiny for you is to live intimately in union with me as a co-heir in God’s kingdom.
My power and presence are limited to the degree you submit your will to me. Unfortunately, you immerse your life in every kind of distraction and noise to escape my presence. You, however, only have illusions of your being in control of your life. Let go of your grasp for power and let my love guide you. The more you become like me, the more you will know my plans for you.
Time and again return to me by turning away from the distractions of the world. Form the habit of being pulled to the center of my love and being. Most of all, let go of your resistance to believe I don’t have your best interests in mind. You can trust me with your life!
Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:17 NIV
