Do You Love Me?

“Do you love me” is a great song from the old musical “Fiddler on the Roof”. In the song Golde and Tevye have been married for 25 years. The first time they met was on their wedding day and in 25 years they have never said “I love you!” Can you imagine being 25 years old and never having someone tell you they loved you?

Wouldn’t you have some serious doubts about life and yourself if that happened? I know I would! Isn’t this like the way you and I approach prayer sometimes? We don’t consciously treat the Lord this way of course, but when is the last time you told the Lord you loved Him? Felt Him say it back to you? If ever?

We pray  and tell the Lord we love Him, because even though God already knows our thoughts and feelings, we don’t know His.

I’ve had the privilege to start writing this spring for an other young girls blog called “Unfading. Beauty That Lasts”.  Geared towards 13-17 year olds this blog is filled with encouraging fiction and non fiction stories and inspiration. Check them out! Unfading.org.
