“Your praises are a fragrant offering to me, they delight my heart and I receive your love through them. They ascend to me like a big hug, transferring your love, honor, and joy through my Spirit. I will bless you for being thankful because it pleases my heart to do so.
I long to satisfy you with good things. The best things are the things of my Spirit which strengthen your inner human heart. They infuse your soul with my grace and they build the bond of love between us. I thrive on the joy of being personally connected to you. I am not a distant Father. I am with you now, right where you are. Open your heart so that we may fellowship together and so that you may see my blessings poured out in your life.
You don’t need to be something that you are not to come into my presence and to receive what I have for you. I love you and accept you as you are. My only desire is for you to open your heart to me, to allow me to come in and have ongoing fellowship with you.
My Spirit is life and health to your bones. My Spirit puts the hope of eternity into your life and fills you with my peace. Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart through Christ Jesus the Lord and Savior of all.”
