Keep Bleeding Love

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 “You cut me open and I keep, keep bleeding love.”

 Leona Lewis’s recording gave voice to strong sentiment for millions.

“Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain.
Once or twice was enough, and it was all in vain.
Time starts to pass; before you know it you’re frozen.”

 Leona sings of how she’d cut her heart off from love after being hurt and disappointed in her relationships. As her story continues, she speaks of finding a new love and the risk of becoming vulnerable again.

“But nothing’s greater than the risk that comes with your embrace.
And in this world of loneliness, I see your face.”

Yet the lyrics hint of an unhealthiness in the new relationship. Friends warn her that she’s crazy. She tries to cut off the vein of her love, but yet she keeps bleeding love.

Do You Feel Invisible to God?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

God doesn’t simply like you. He loves you. His love for you is unlimited and inextinguishable. He persistently pursues you with a purposeful, passionate heart.

Were you stirred inside by those words? Or did you feel completely disconnected from their truth? Or perhaps you thought, “Well, yeah, I know that,” and you assented to the words on a mental level but not a heart level?

Is it important that our knowing of God’s love move from simple mental assent into a transformational experiential knowing of His love?

You’ve probably already answered that with a “yes”, but are you aware of the transformational work of God’s love in your life? Can you name where He is changing your heart?

Surrender Your Way into Grace

Posted by: | Comments (0)

 “All to Jesus, I surrender. All to Him I freely give. I will ever love and trust Him, in His presence daily live. I surrender all.”

The words take me back in my mind to the little country church where I grew up. I can almost hear my uncle sing the words as people behind me and around me echo the sentiment. The melody….serene, tranquil. The words sound to have been written when De Venter, the author, was immersed in a glory cloud, and certainly not before two cups of morning coffee.

Doesn’t it sound simple, without any labor at all? You know, just surrender?

A Moment with Rango

You have purpose. You have destiny. You have a divine blueprint for your life.

We choose to live out the script for our lives, or we choose to walk away from the script.

And yet, even the walking away becomes a part of what God uses.

We often feel the walking away moments and the walking away seasons disqualify us from the divine plan. But somehow, beyond our ability to grasp, God writes the walking away seasons into our purpose.

Sound like heresy? Sound like somehow we are slapping God in the face if we believe that He can use our failures as part of His plan?
