Crazy Love.

February 07, 2013

I have been reflecting on something the past couple of days that I know I will never grasp, nor has anyone been able to actually understand.

God’s love.

I think it is one of those things that you hear growing up, people say it non-chalantly and so it just seems…normal. Like, the normal, “l love you” type of love.

But it is so much GREATER.

As I start to think about my past experiences, it makes no sense as to why God provided for me in so many occasions. Or why He refused to listen to my stubbornness because He knew that I didn’t even know what was good for me.

His love is irrational. It makes NO sense as to why a perfect God would yearn to have a relationship with such imperfect people.

His love is unconditional. Come as you are, He says. Literally, JUST LIKE THAT. He finds us flawless. That is insane to me.

His love is perfect. It is the most tender yet bold and powerful love that ever existed and ever will exist. It is the perfect puzzle piece to a tarnished heart because it can make anything whole.

His love is unwavering. It is the same yesterday, today and forever. Because nothing in this temporary life is comparable, it is hard to fully grasp this concept. But it is constant, 100% pure love, no matter the circumstances.

His love is selfless. I think as humans, we tend to define our “ability to love” based on another individual’s ability “to be loved.” But God’s love? It has nothing to do with us or our disobedience or mistakes. It is a radical love that selflessly gives without expecting anything in return.

His love is transformational. It is impossible to truly feel the love of God and remain the same. It changes your entire world when you realize who holds the world. This life-altering love is a “change your world upside down” kinda love.

I can’t get enough of His love and I am SO glad there is more than enough to go around.

You were created because of God’s love with the intention to experience His love and then shout it from the mountain tops!

Romeo has NOTHIN’ on God because this kinda love is simply one of a kind.

Crazy Love. It’s the best.

“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” -Augustine

“Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.” -Psalm 63:3

Short and sweet— whatcha been doing this morning? Have you developed a healthy routine when your mind wakes up and your feet hit the floor that will ensure a peaceful and productive rest of your day? I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
