Unreciprocated love is nasty cruel. You pour your heart out to another but they don’t hold or treasure it. They just let it splish out in the dirt – and you’re left with an empty heart.

I get tw-tw-twitchy when we call it “worship” but mean singing. Romans 12:1 ” offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship.” The author (of everything that’s been created) gave His whole self to you, poured out His whole heart for you. Such is the hugeness and intimacy of Jesus. You get to love him back with your whole life. That’s worship.

Worship

God invites and welcomes your worship.

In the Old Testament we see this in the first commandment. ‘I am the Lord your God and you shall have no other gods before me.’ Exodus 20.2-3 (http://bit.ly/2ND8rSh) In the New Testament we hear it in Jesus answer to the question about the greatest commandment, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all of your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22.37-39 (http://bit.ly/2NEBHZ6)

Too often in Christianity we tend to make it all about us, our wants and needs; yet God will constantly remind us that God needs to be in the centre of it all.

Planted

“Planted” by Lebohang Kgapola and Rashid Adams (http://bit.ly/31alQ85) , one of my new favourite tracks.
It’s got a chilled young South African feel to it #Love! and is based on Jeremiah 17:7-8.

It’s about those who trust in God are like trees planted by the water. They don’t have to fear when the heat/drought comes, because their roots are set by the river. Their leaves are always green. They never fail to bear fruit.

Let’s put our trust in God by staying planted in him, knowing that He’ll take care of us. Instead of worrying we can have rest and have joy.

FULLY Known

“You won’t let go, no matter what I do
And it’s not one or the other
It’s hard truth and ridiculous grace to be known
Fully known, and loved by you
I’m fully known, and loved by you”
_Tauren Wells

It’s hard to believe sometimes hey?

I have to read over Psalm139 (http://bit.ly/2EfiANJ) a few times to grasp the fact that I’m FULLY Known. Every single inch of you is known by God.. Inside and out. He loves us so much, just as we are, imperfect and all.

Lol you feel like you don’t deserve it too hey?
Me too.
But God thinks we do.
And that’s grace.
