The Greatest Commandment

Love the Lord Thy God with all your mind,all your heart.all your strengthand all your soul. That sums up the entire Law and the prophets. What a simple thing I mean how obvious right???? Love God......like DUH...... but it isnt quite so simple and it gnaws at me to reflect inside myself how much I really fail at this single most profound yet clear as a bell truth. I echo the words over and over in my heart and mind love God love Him with everything.... love Him in every possible way imaginable love Him and just be like the energizer bunny keep loving and loving and loving.................

Man it hurts to realize how far I am from even coming close in any way shape or form to obeying this command....... it slowly very slowly dawns on me that I in my self am useless to EVER come close Doesnt matter how far into being a "christian" I go..... without Jesus power apart from the Holy Spirits work within me..... Ill just be on a downward spiral realizing my utter ineptitude to achieve this absolute most basic commitment of one who is a follower of Christ..........Lord God give me Your wisdom mercy love and grace to be able to see with my eyes, hear with my ears and respond with my heart...... work Your will in me so I will love and obey You with Jesus living in me and the Spirit guiding me All my efforts are worthless dung apart from You Holy God...... have mercy on me a sinner help me to be humble and know YOU ARE GOD!!!!!!!!!!!
