Jesus, my truest love, guide me to the celestial hills so that I can traverse the path before me from a heavenly perspective. What bliss fills the emptiness of my soul to know that I was Your ancient choice. You chose me before I chose You. You delighted in me before I delighted in You. Such blessed assurance of anchored love that flowed to me from before time began so that I could respond in adoration is beyond human comprehension. Your voice beckons me to the depths of belief, Lord. Your whispers are sweet melodies of offered peace. I gladly go where You take me. I can walk upon the waters of adversity because Your mighty love sustains me. Beneath the shower of Your immeasurable love, let my starving heart find nourishment. For You, who gave Yourself up for me, let me live a life that gives itself entirely to You. There is no other response to such divine, unfathomable richness of love than to submit to the invitation to abide. Under the majesty of Your Word in John 15:9-10 and the authority of Christ, lover of my soul, I pray.
As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you.
Now remain in My love. If you keep My commands,
you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands
and remain in His love.
John 15:9-10, NIV
