There are times when I pray, I fail to hear what God is saying. Often it is because I am doing all the talking….
Faith does come from just the mind, nor does it come just from the heart, nor from our spirit, nor the body. Instead, it comes from all four. Without the heart, it is just an intellectual exercise. Without the mind, it is just a feel good experience. Without the spirit, it remains earthbound. Without the body, it has no substance. It is not until it involves our entire person-hood, does it become real.
Inside of us is the intense desire to be loved and to love. Love has to freely and willingly given to be love. Love has to be freely and willingly received to be love. Nothing more…nothing less.
