Something like a prayer




I was driving and over and over and over again these lyrics were playing in my head, in my ears, in my heart consuming my thoughts;

"A thousand times I've failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
Im caught in your grace
Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame
Let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out"

These were also there, but even more so as they have become something like a prayer recently

"Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to
Eternity"


As the days go on it becomes ingrained in my spirit that without my creator I am unable to love , to care, to accept, to be nice and to forgive, all of it means nothing without his spirit living in me pulling me towards his will, his mercies and causing me to believe that I am caught in grace.
I want to share love and joy and peace with people, with my friends, families and strangers but I know that the way that it has been done in the past by people who have similar beliefs as me is not the way that I am called to , what do I believe my calling is?


To
Love,
Period!

Bobbi calls it to love on someone - that is what we are called to do - and I have to completely agree - we are to just pour it out - I remember holding my girls (now yours) as we watched the Passion and they just sobbed - it's crazy that feeling - it was a glimpse at what God does daily - He holds us in our brokenness. I want to do that - maybe that's what that vision was back when I started Tenth - handing my heart broken to God, but also recognizing that is what I am to - I know our hearts will never be completely healed in this life- but I can with love put a hand on bleeding crack in someone's life... love that's that hand.
