Come now, let me teach you more about my love. My love does not deny reality and the messiness of situations, but it does call forth truth within them. My love propels the beauty inside to the surface. This is nothing short of a miracle as you are steeped within a carnal nature and tossed about by circumstances of continuous warfare.
To grow up you must first grow down.
But this truly is the life hidden in Me. To walk in great responsibility with a light heart is a gift from Me. It does not come overnight, and it is only maintained with childlike simplicity — carved deep within your being. To grow up you must first grow down. To take on more, you must take on less. Do you understand this concept? Are you willing to have me work it into your life?
“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.” (2 Corinthians 2:14-15) Further References: John 3:30; Colossians 3:3-4
