Let Me Love You

Let Me Love You

I know I am not the only wife in the world who thinks this, but can I just say I have the best husband, ever. The best! Colby and I have been married 6.5 years and I am so thankful to have such a steadfast man by my side.

From day 1 of getting married he has asked, “what can I do to love you more today?” Lately, that question has turned into a statement.

“Let me love you.”

All Colby wants to do is love me. Serve me. Hold me. Cuddle with me. Listen to me. Do things for me. Be with me. He would snuggle all day, every day, if I let him.

“Let me love you.”

I’ll be honest, I don’t always let him. Work piles up and I get so overwhelmed that I push him away or tell him “no.”

Here I have my husband running after me, just wanting to love me and my response?

“No.”

The Lord reminded me how often I act that way with him too. How often have I thought or said “no” to the Father?

I know that Colby’s love for me compared to how much Jesus loves me is just a fraction. Just a fraction. But the lesson that the Father taught me through Colby? It’s one for everyone.

God is a relentless Father. He is in constant pursuit of you. He wants all your attention and all your time. He wants to be with you wherever you go. He wants to lavish you with his love. He wants you to be captivated with him. He wants to spend every second of every day with you.

You might be feeling all alone today, or maybe like God has abandoned you, but let me remind you, his words to you are always, “let me love you.” When I am sitting all alone and Colby is not near, it’s not that he has left me or stopped loving me, instead it’s that my “no” pushed him away, which leaves him no opportunity to love me. God is no different; he can’t love you if you don’t allow him to.

Don’t push the Father away any more. He’s after you and wants all of you. He’s always whispering to you, “let me love you.”

Will you allow the Lord to love you? Will you let him sit with you? Will you talk to him? Will you listen to him? Will you spend time with him?

“Let me love you.”

What will your response to him be?

    Such a sweet post. How blessed you are with an incredibly husband. I live seeing how God brings people together for plans he had created. No perfect person to be by your side

    Such a good word! I love how the Lord spoke to you through your sweet husband. I too am guilty of telling the Father “no”. I love the encouragement to simply let him love me. So good!
