Change

crush

break

shatter me

that the light of you 

may flood through

the broken pieces of me

 

 

 


What Is This?

There is a need deep inside that I can’t explain.

An insatiable craving that just can’t be stopped.

Everyday I feel it more and more.

There are moments where it seems to tear the very core of me apart.

Yet there are times where it is the only thing that keeps me going.

At points I dread it for it seems to throw my world into chaos.

But then there are moments where its the only clarity I have.

What is this that won’t let me go?

What is this that tells me I am worth more than I realize?

What is this that breaks me gently, tenderly?

Lord, is this… Love?


Cannot Help But…

Dear One.

Quiet yourself.

Hear me.

I love you.

You question it,

you doubt it,

you argue with me about it.

But I love you anyways.

I cannot help but love you, dear one.

My heart resonates for you.

I long to see you,

to hear you say my name.

I cherish all moments with you.

When doubt creeps in.

When you convince yourself that I shouldn’t love you

due to your sin or past, even your present flaws.

Remember this moment.

Remember me whispering “I can’t help but love you.”

Hearing me say again and again “I can’t help but love you.”

Hear me shout at the top of my lungs “I CAN”T HELP BUT LOVE YOU!”

Dear one, I love you, I love you, I love you.

There is no end to this love…

It does not cease.


Will You?

 

Will you delight in Me?
Even if you stumble?
Even if you fall?
Will you delight in Me?
For I am your deliverer.
Take your refuge in Me.
Hope in –
Follow –
Wait for Me.
Will you delight in Me?
Even when the storms roll in.
Even when the doubts confront your mind.
Will you run to my embrace?
Will you delight in Me?
Ponder my great works.
For I have redeemed your life.
I’ve crowned you with love and compassion.
I am your strength
Your redemption
Your saving grace
And your open arms of love.
So will you come and delight in Me?

 


Love You

 

Do you know how much I love you?
Do you know?
I stand up from My throne and shout…
I love you!
Day and night this cry is ceaseless.
I desire for you to know –
Truly know this love I have – for you.
There are times I speak in beautiful whispers – to you.
But when it comes to My love for you –
I can’t keep from shouting
I love you
I love you
I love you.
My love is your endless oasis.
Come drink.
Its time for you to know
To know the beauty and freedom of surrendering
of drowning
in My love for you.

 


Be With Me

 

Be in My presence.

Dwell in My love.

Rest in My embrace.

Seek Me.

Desire Me.

Your heart is crying out for more,

More of Me.

Your soul burns with a new hunger.

To know Me – is the whisper that escapes you.

So be swept away by My love.

To know Me.

To find Me.

For I am here.

In the fiercest storm and

Even in the faintest whisper.

Be with Me.

 


Love… like the Father

 

You’ve prayed and asked what it means to love like Me.

What it means to have a heart like mine.

You’ve said ‘ you desire and crave

– to love like I do.

When you truly love like Me there will be no differentiation between your love for people and My love – for it will all be one love.

Are you sure you want this?

You see My love is not only a wholehearted commitment – it’s a lifestyle.

My love is deep

forgiving

constant

seeking

sacrificial

jealous

all-consuming.

To love like Me.

Means you’re willing to lay everything down for it.

To lay down you’re selfish desires, wants, needs, your own prerogative – no selfish motivation or manipulation in this love.

Because My love is pure.

My love is all you need.

When you love like I do people see a beauty they never knew existed.

It is here in this love that healing occurs and freedom begins.

It’s here where belonging is known and real beauty is seen.

Here where the deepest pains and torments are poured out.

Are you ready to be a part of this?

Do you still want to love like I do?

Are you ready to love like the Father?
