Tears of deepest pain

I am pretty emotional right now and today. I am creeping up on a 12-week anniversary and for some reason it is feeling very emotional. I visited a church today that was really amazing. It was easy to see on walking in that these people were really excited about loving God. One of the things that has been bothering me recently is how much focus can be given these days to “loving our neighbor” albeit it most of us including myself would avoid actually loving them as ourselves and how little focus can be given to loving God above all. This church seemed to have both things down. I had no doubt that I was welcomed, but the love of God seemed to radiate from these people. It was pretty amazing. I came home and wept. Why aren’t more churches like that? Pulsing with nothing except loving God above all? Why isn’t my life like that? I would give anything to love and enjoy God the way that pastor clearly does.

My command is this: love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do as I command. John 15
