John 15:12 “This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.” (NLT)
Father – I know I can obey this command only in your strength, ability and vision. My puny self wants to always judge how everyone else measures up to what I want them to be and then I’ll love them. Please forgive me for this ugliness! Help me to dethrone self today and to let your love flow through me to all you put in my path. I am your work in progress…
Child – You are my work and I am working. Without my Word and my thoughts you wouldn’t even realize the self within that needs to be pruned away. This is why it is vital to stay attached to the vine (Me). As life flows to you from Me, the old withers and the new grows.
Yes, you are my work in progress. I am the potter and you are the clay. I am molding you into the beautiful finished work I know you to be. Sometimes the formation is rougher than you desire, but trust Me for the final touches.
I am faithful and I love you. Live each day close to Me and feel the power of my life flowing through you. All you need will be provided as you stay attached.
Love you, Abba
