“My heart still aches to be with them [some close brothers and sisters in Christ] and I miss them so much.

I learned through that experience how close Jesus wants us to be with each other.  I felt the ‘make them one as You and I are one’ feeling that Jesus prayed for us to have.  When we can love our brothers and sisters in Christ with such a depth of love that we ache when we are apart, and we are filled with such joy when we are together, this is the love He prayed for us.

This is how He feels when we are apart from Him and when we are with Him.  He aches for us and misses us when we are apart.  He is filled with such joy when we are together.  If we could only remember and experience this love every day with each other, His prayer would be answered.  Now I understand why He stays before His Father night and day on our behalf.  Oh how He loves us, oh how He LOVES us!”

“God’s love amazes me. He spends so much time just being there for us when we don’t give Him the least recognition. He is always fully present. Fully available. Ready to listen. Ready to provide whatever it is we’re needing in that moment. Oh, and He’s so fully present that He already knows what that is. He’s just waiting for us to let Him in (Revelation 3:20).”
