The Luxury Of Idle Time In My Company

You have no idea how pleased I am with you. You have no idea how much love I have for you. You have no idea how much joy and pleasure you bring to my heart. You have no idea just how much I treasure you. You have no idea, but as you listen to my words and engage with my heart, I will continue to reveal it to you again and again. And when you forget, do not worry for I will remind you. When you are tired I will pick you up. When you are confused I will be your answer. When you are angry, I will be you peace. When you are anxious I will calm your turmoil.

I have been, and always will be, all you will need, for apart from me you can do nothing. While it is good to pursue and develop what I have given you, placed before you, and initiated within you, it is also good and necessary for you to engage with me in meaningless ways. There is great value in seeking me deliberately and intentionally but there is also great value and significance in wasting time with me, in the sentiments of my heart, and in yours. There is great significance as you encounter me in the unspoken realms, as I continue to minister to the issues of your heart, the things you can perceive but cannot understand, explain, articulate, or diagnose.

In these dimensions you will come to know me in trivial and also substantial expressions that will impact your heart. While your mind may not always understand every detail of what transpires between us, your heart most certainly will. As I inspire adventure and exploration from within your heart, you will begin to discover and experience the liberation you need but cannot always possess and manifest in your circumstances.

Dismantle your skepticism and allow me to waste your days. Dismantle your busy agenda and allow yourself the luxury of idle time in my company. In our fellowship together you will find joy unspeakable and joy immeasurable. You will find more joy than you can contain, and more peace than you can imagine setting your heart free from the cares, worries, and concerns that weigh you down unnecessarily. (2)
