You shall love the Lord, your God, with your whole heart, and with your whole soul, and with all your strength. —Deut 6:5

Reflection. It is possible to love God with your whole heart, mind, and soul, without forcing yourself to feel any emotion whatsoever. Simply will it. Will to love God, without making yourself feel anything.

The will has only one function, to say yes or no. If you want to love God, just say yes. Forget the feelings. The Lord is pleased with your holy desire, and He blesses you.

Prayer. Jesus, I will it. I will to love You. Help me to reach perfection one day, but for now, just be pleased that I give You myself as best I can.
