Janet, in her God With Us: Finding Joy post yesterday, reminded us that we need to listen to God. Charles Stanley says we need to come to God with expectancy--assuming that He will speak to us when we listen.
This morning I come expectantly to listen, asking Him what He wants to say to me. He says the same He always says: "I love you."
"Anything else?" I ask.
"No. That's all."
When God says "I love you," (and He's always saying it, constantly, over and over again), that's all He says. He never says, "I love you, but. . ."
