MY HOW BUSY WE BECOME WHEN LOSE SIGHT OF HOW GOD LOVES US.
~Julian of Norwich
There are two ways, I see, to begin to look at this quote. The first is “how God loves us” which will result in a desire to be less busy. The second is “how busy” which will result in a desire to be loved by God. I wonder if the key to either is a life with margin…a life that does not lose sight of “how” I am living at any given moment.
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. ~1John 3:1
Am I, are you, too busy to be loved by God?
No, but sometimes I get so busy I do not see God’s love surrounding me–wanting me to feel loved and to love Him back by loving all His children. Mom
But what if we are busy doing work for God? There are many Proverbs warning against the “sluggard”. Just saying…
I think we can be so busy doing work for God and trying to earn God’s love that we lose sight of God’s grace. Thanks for saying…
Yes…God’s love does surround us in ways we lose sight of!
