More of Him, less of me.
(a little less of me, 365 Day 127 Photo)
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments you will… This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15: 5, 9-10,12
I was kind of stuck last fall. I don’t know exactly when I un-stuck but I did this 8 month study, closed my mouth more, and now I feel more free to love, like when I was younger.
I’m not even going to pretend I will all the time. But I feel certain that I can. He was clear about how to do it: “Abide in me and let My words abide in you.”
I think that was the difference. Taking in more of His word, even though not daily or anything, did fill my head with Truth about me, my family, and other people, instead of what I thought I knew. I think it’s given me the strength to relax and love better.
It wasn’t fast, because I’d been hitting a wall for a while, but it was a simple process. Get more of Him in me and the bad stuff just kind of falls out.
