A companionship of interest

Dear Companions and friends,

I am reminded the companionship of Jesus springs, not from obligation or requirement, but from interest.

Jesus is interested in being with me.

That creates a wide pause for me.

Somehow that feels important for me to recognize and ponder.

Offering presence and interaction from obligation and requirement sheds duty-light on relationship.  It’s a turning toward because of must or have to.  Consequently, I feel my heart turning to take ten paces away from relationship.

Interest sheds new light.  Interest says I want to.  I choose.  Interest speaks of initiative, of response.  Interest accents authenticity.  A companionship of interest softens my edges and widens my heart.  I watch my guard drop a bit more.  I find my own heart’s curiosity warmly stirred.  I even feel a lightness in my step.

“Jesus, my ever-interested Companion, your love seeps gently.  Here is my heart and hand, let us walk together today…with interest.”

So be it.

Grace and love to you in this good day,

John
