Sony’s Thoughts: Let Me Fall

Last evening, as I was getting ready for bed, I was listening to Kenny Hinson sing, “Let Me Fall.” As I listened and prayed and sang, the following prayer began to form.
Father, let me fall in love with You all over again. Until I learn to love You with everything in me–spirit, soul, mind and body–I can’t truly love anyone. Yet love is the greatest commandment. Without love, I am a sounding brass and tinkling cymbal. Just noise in the midst of what could be a beautiful orchestra. I want to produce beautiful music for You. I want to be a true friend and Sister to those You have put in my life. I want to walk so close to You that it is no longer I who live but You who lives in me speaking to those I encounter on a daily basis. Thank You, Father, for loving this poor girl who was in desperate need of salvation before You found me. Words cannot express my gratitude but I’m thankful that You can read the words of my heart. I love You so much!
Our relationship with God is the most important one we have. Focus is often put on human love and relationships but until we love God, we can’t truly love our Brothers and Sisters, husbands and wives, etc. No one on earth will ever love you near as much as God loves you.
As we approach 2013, this is my prayer. I want to fall in love with Jesus all over again. I want to remember how sweet it was when I first began to walk with Him, how strong the love was and the reassurance that I am His and He is mine. I want to consciously remember that He is by my side. As I go through each day, I am walking with Him. I’m so grateful that, when I reached out to take His extended hand long ago, He never let go. He has been and always will be faithful. Thank You, Lord!

  1. Thank you Sony for those inspiring words ! Just this morning I was thinking of skipping church. Got to sleep in ,because no Sunday School today. Not good enough for me. Started finding reasons it was “ok ” not to go. On my way!

    • Dare I admit I had the same thought? I’ve been really tired this week and my back’s been hurting so I wasn’t sure about going but, like you, I got up and went and was very glad I did so. Thank you for reading my post.

  2. Praise God for His unending love.I would be nothing without Him.

    • Amen, Ruth!
