I’m In Love!

(please remember to mute my music player first, thanks so much!)

 

Obsessed:  To have the mind excessively preoccupied with a single emotion or topic.

 

The idea of holding back certainly didn’t come from scripture. 

The bible teaches us to be consumed with Christ and to faithfully live out His words.

The Holy Spirit stirs in us a joy and peace when we are fixated on Jesus, living by faith, and focused on the life to come.

Thank you for this blessing today Susan.

I love the LORD with all of my heart because He first loved me and in that love He has consumed my life with His goodness and His greatness.

I'm deeply appreciative for HIS presence in my life.

I love you.

Greetings Susan, Thanks so much for stopping by my little spot and commenting. I so enjoy making new friends. So please, stop by anytime.

You are richly blessed with so many children and grandchildren. Those grandbabies are too precious.

Praises to our Lord. Blessings, SusanD

Needed this so much this morning sweet Susan. I was just praying that verse in Matthew...love the Lord your God with all...
I am feeling so weepy this morning and not sure why but I know it has to do w/ how I am craving more of God. Been going through some trials w/ a friend and I have never dealt w/ things like this as an adult as some of what has happened seems so highschool drama. It's hard when treated like this to want to live out "Love thy neighbor" especially when it really is my neighbor..LOL. I've got this book and have been considering doing it on my blog along w/ Linda from 2nd Cup of Coffee.
Thanks for sharing this video. I loved it.
Love you,
Lelia
Your grandchildren are stunning!

Oh Susan! That was incredible. I felt HIM speak to my heart through the words that "played out" on the screen....

Thank you for sharing this--and for your dedicated heart to HIM!

BTW---those little snapshots of sugar down below this post are too cute!

I'll have 2 grandsons with us this weekend...TIRING JOY!

Precious, thank you for the beautiful prayer you prayed over me at my blog.

I pray the Lord would continuously bless you and your family with His divine presence, power, healing, peace, strength, wisdom, love, compassion, grace and provision in Jesus Name. Amen.

I love you.

Praying for your family right now!
Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

This is my heartbeat. Prayer.

I may have to post this video. It speaks better than I could ever write.

Thank you for speaking about what really matters.

I've read Crazy Love, but I must say I didn't dive in like I usually do because I didn't own the copy. Bummer. It was the library's copy. I need my own so I can really glean from it through deeper study. My pen and highlighter are required.

Enjoy your weekend and week.

Love you.

Susan - I just started "Crazy Love" and just absolutely love that book! I love the excerpt from it that you quoted.

I have 3 grown daughters and 3 grandbabies myself - 2 girls, 3 boys. I am having the biggest blast being a Nana. My cup indeed overfloweth.

Many blessings,
