Love That Doesn't Budge

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.  Romans 8:26-28 (MSG)

Ever get tired? Have you ever, when you woke up in the morning, decided you were tired of well, everything? Have you ever said to God "I don't want to talk to you today." or how about "I don't feel like talking at all." I have.

I have told him I don't want to talk to him. I have yelled and been angry with him. What does he do? Does he send lightning bolts down to strike me and say "Take that!"? Nope. He does our praying for us. Wait. What? The Holy Spirit takes our attitudes whether it be discouragement, anger, frustration, disappointment or whatever and he still presents that to God and keeps us right where we need to be. Even when we can't do it ourselves, he keeps us close to God.

How amazing is that! How awesome that even when we move in the opposite direction of where God is, he doesn't budge. This is bigger than unconditional love. This is a love that refuses to let go. This is the kind of love that doesn't give up on me when I have thrown in the towel. And it is because of this, this love that I cannot fathom, that I will always come back and talk to him some more.
