A Love Embrace

Breakthrough for Life Coach Insights 06-27-17

Is your love tank empty? Have you poured yourself out to everything and everyone, leaving yourself in need of a deep embrace? Do you want to be loved with no agenda or ulterior motive? Do you fear when people get to know the real you, they may not love you anymore?

 

As a Christian Life Coach, I see the effects of empty love tanks all around me. The symptoms are very familiar but hard to trace and at times, even harder to overcome. We put a smile on our face for the world to see but deep in our hearts, we are secretly hurting. Life pulls so much out of all of us. Where do we go to get our love tanks filled back up?

 

I am sitting here laughing at myself because I have written two paragraphs and asked five questions. Can you tell I’m a Life Coach? I can’t help it, I’m curious and I love what I do. I love people and I want them to be mended, whole and fulfilled in every area of their life.

 

The only person who can love you with pure unadulterated love is Jesus. Many of you already know that but struggle with receiving His love. I hope this blog will help you receive a love embrace from the one who loves you most.

 
Be Open: Receiving a love embrace from the Father means you open yourself up to being loved. Start first with understanding that you can never earn His love, all you can do is be open to receiving it. Many people operate in self-condemnation and feel they aren’t worthy to be unconditionally loved. This mindset will cause you to be closed to receiving love, pushing it away each time it knocks on your door. Remember it is not about earning it and being worthy. It is about being open to receiving the gift of His love. His very nature is pure love and He gives of it freely to all who will be open to receiving it.
 
Head to Heart: Many of us know that God loves us but we don’t feel it in our hearts. We say things like, “I know He loves me BUT…” Emotionally experiencing His love will help you move it from head knowledge to heart knowledge. The promises of God are in a heart locket and believing He truly loves us on a heart level allows us to experience it in the physical realm. Let’s look at what Dr. James B. Richards has to say about heart reality.
 

“When I combine information and emotion, I begin to experience my thoughts as real. Appropriately, someone once said that the heart knows no difference between reality and something clearly imagined. When I experience a thought at an emotional level it heightens my ability to believe that it is real. It is a way of connecting with a reality different than we are experiencing.

 

Like the apostle Paul, who learned the secret power of seeing the unseen, we can see our future through the eyes of the heart. As we see ourselves experiencing God’s promises to the degree that we begin to create the sense of actually possessing those promises, they become our reality. Once it becomes believable, the heart will release the power of God to make it happen.”1

 
Get to Know Love What is love? Understanding love from God’s perspective requires a fresh vantage point. Your view will be distorted if you try to comprehend love based on human interaction. The wonderful thing is He wants you to know the depths of His love.
 

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”2

 
Doing a word study on “love” in the bible is an effective way to recondition your heart to receive the embrace of His love. Biblegateway.com, crosswalk.com and YouVersion are great tools for doing word studies. Any of these tools will allow you to look up all the bible verses for your word of choice. Study the different bible verses in the context it is written. Then ask yourself how does this apply to me?
 

Always remember you are the apple of His eye, the object of His affection and He delights in your prosperity. You are not forgotten and He is not mad at you. He sees what you are going through in this very moment and He wants to love you through it all. Will you receive His love embrace?

 

All it takes is 15 minutes a day to get a Holy love embrace from the Creator of the Universe. He knows all about you and still loves you. Have you embraced His love today? Let this song wash over your heart and drink deeply from His waterfall of love.
