Either God catches us like a fish with a hook (enticing and wooing) or He hunts us like game (force to break, overthrow, imprison).
Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
Batter my heart three-personed God, for I'm lost unless You ravage me! You must quell my passions and bend me—yes, even bruise me. I will be yours!
Though most of us fight the transitory nature of our relationships, it remains our living reality. So what does God say about all the lonely people?
In deep relational building there's a dance in our relationships that can all day long be seen as a courting, even in brotherhood. A Bromance.
There’s a factor left unmentioned in my last post about the story of three tragic lives: GRACE! I wanted to dedicate a whole post to it.
We’ve asked for a blessing to cover all of you, however your story is written. Here is what the Spirit gave.
God's love can be found in the unlikeliest places, even a simple mailbox. And seeing that love reveals the Heart behind it!
Rightly loving your Self, as obedience to God’s second command, is something entirely different than self-worship. To love and respect your self honors God!
This world’s cold love stems from a failure to love God and self. Our cold love is the byproduct of our lack of love for God and self.
I have learned that I can’t close off my heart to the world in self-protection and not also close it off to God, who created that world. That's cold love!
Love is the only force that brings in true lasting change and revival. That Love is not only expressed with our love for God but also when we love one another.
