We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

#208 My Love will Keep You

By Arla, Feb 14 2019 02:00AM

Now finally they can hear, and instead of revealing the awful events ahead, Jesus gets them ready for his absence; he reveals who he is unmistakably, and their need for connection with him. Then he tells them his desires for them, and the resources available to them--that he hasn't had anything they can't have through the Holy Spirit!


As he speaks, his face shines, heaviness gone. They feel heaven is near, convinced they're hearing from God himself.


He longs for them to know his value of them, to experience how much he wants us to value ourselves. He says that God is happy when we make the highest demands on Him to show God's character of love!


He says, "Ask anything I would ask, and I'll do it!


"Your joy and power is living in submission to God as I have. The weakest of you can do this! Because I'm going to the Father, Spirit is my successor. If you invite Me in, Spirit and Father will live in you too. And if you spend time with Us, We will so blend our thoughts and desires with your wishes that Ours and yours will be the same. When doing what you want it will be what We want!"


They're transfixed, and he assures, "You won't feel orphaned. If you love me, my commandments will keep you,* and the Father will send you another comforter, the Spirit, to be your closest friend. He will provide peace, teach you truth, and remind you of my words to you."


It's win, win, win.


John 14:11-26

*the literal wording of verse 15 in the Greek text (notice that it fits the context of comforting them)
