But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deuteronomy 4:29 NIV
*Giving our heart and mind to God is something we have to let go, and do completely without argument or debate. We can't ask to hear from God if we are unwilling to trust and listen. If we are seeking Him with a free heart and mind that's empty of rebuttals or the scars of our experiences, then it will be easier to hear His voice. God is not going to argue with our assumptions, hurts, or plans; instead, He wants to know that we trust Him and are ready to hear what He has to say and obey. Love is letting go of what you knew to embrace the unknown. Are you ready to let go and love God?
