I ask of You to ask of me

I wonder if this relationship stuff – with the very best of intentions – can become a little one-sided:

Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Although the add-on comes close.

‘In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:7-12

Thank you Father.

But I have to tell you – much as I appreciate these offerings, much as I accept these offerings, much as I embrace these offerings …

I have so much to give, so much to offer, so much You can embrace in me … so much we can be together … so much I want to be in You and You in me!

So I have to say something to You, dear Father –

Ask of my soul, and I will hear.
Search of my heart, and I will invite.
Knock on my thoughts, and I will connect.
For I ask of You to ask of me as I ask of You.

You will ask only for love, why then would I give obligation?
And for tenderness, why would I return simple duty?
And always relationship, how then can I ever offer a mere slot in a diary?

I know that You, who art Love Unconditional, can only ask good things of me –
Will only ever ask good things of me –
How then would I ever desire to doubt your request?

This is not “just” the law, this is not “just” Love Unconditional –
this is My free will, this is My choice, this is Me living in You as You in Me every day.

Now …

Let’s rock and roll!!

  1. And there is the answer to the question, WHY? Why was I created, why did God Almighty go to all that trouble? Why does He love me and want me to love Him?

    Now, let’s rock on together!!

    P.S. Susie got excited when she saw Bill and Ted’s picture! The two movies are couple of her favorites, go figure!! I love her though!!!

    • Thank you Roland – and thank Susie please. She has taste (in more than just her “man”!) 🙂

      There are periods when as He and I converse over a verse – it seems as though sifting a pile of autumn leaves. He touches one and moves it a fraction – and there beneath is whole little universe I had never seen before. And the writing becomes – “wow – everybody – anyone – come and have a look here …”

      We seem to be “loving the leaves” right now! As John said “Station!”

      (ask Susie)
