“For love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord.
Many waters cannot quench love…”
(Song of Songs 8:6-7)
Lately God has been tenderizing my heart with reminders of His love as I spend time with Him. He has been deepening my revelation of just how deep and wide and high it truly is. By His Spirit this is transforming me. Less and less do the details of what this life will bring matter, and more and more my heart longs merely to know God and live for Him in every aspect of this life – no matter what it looks like, no matter what it feels like.
The touches of His revelation upon my heart are softening me in His perfect, all-knowing way. He is preparing me for whatever His purposes hold during the next few months and beyond, and also as a vessel wanting to be yielded to Him alone.
“Without Him I can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
God is blowing my mind as He paves the way for me to begin this time of consecration and growth in Him through my internship at a budding house of prayer in our region. His preparation for me seems to be touching every area in my life and needs. This so tenderizes my heart… I don’t deserve this and never could! We never deserved even the sacrifice paid for us by Christ on the cross, and yet He paid the price because He so desires the restoration of unbroken fellowship with His people. That is something we can never cease to grow past knowing—after all, His love is unending and so is He!
Let my heart beat in sync with Yours. Let me live for You alone… to fellowship with You, living for the glory of Your name.
All I want is You to have Your way:
You are the Potter and I am the clay.
All I need is You to have Your way:
You are Creator and I am what You’ve made.
(Misty Edwards – “Finally I Surrender”)
