love and trust

"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out all fear.  For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been in perfect love."
1 John 4:18

Do we often embrace the perfect love in which God loves us?  How often do we feel like we need to "clean up" before coming to the cross?

These are just some thoughts I wrestled with the other day.  I'm not letting God's love seep into every part of me.  Usually when I see my inadequacies, I think, "Why? Why do I feel this way?", and often what it comes down to is trust.  So...I need to put all my trust in him (which seems easy, but the act of doing so can be so difficult) and PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!
I'm definitely in need of some more quiet moments with God.  Just listening to Him and basking in his goodness.

Any of you feel this way? 
Do any of you need prayer?
