Love is unstoppable

4.14.2009

I really have no idea how to start this post...

God is doing some crazy kinds of work in me right now and I am too impatient to know how good it will be when He is finished. And it's funny, because I've noticed that when I'm struggling I seem to believe that God won't know what's happening if I don't talk to him about it. Brilliant right? Surprise, surprise, that just makes it that much worse. How is it possible that over and over His love and grace has been written all over our lives, but the second things get a little rocky, all of that goes out the window. These past few days haven't been the easiest for whatever reason, and instead of falling on my face in prayer, I have ignored. I've been stubborn and stupid and all along, He has been patiently waiting. This afternoon I read Isaiah 59:1 I believe for the first time, and man did it grab a hold of my spirit:

Behold, the Lord's hand is not so short that it cannot save; nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear...

Our God is mighty to save and yet so quick to come and hold us, listen to us, and lead us. Daily our faith, thoughts and heart shift, but He is unwavering in His love for us. And for some reason, I have forgotten that. I've let this world control my emotions and my thoughts and it is time for it to stop.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body--2 Corinthians 4:8-10

The pruning season isn't an easy one and it definitely isn't a pretty one, but man oh man how necessary is it??



If everything comes down to love
Then just what am I afraid of
When I call out Your name
Something inside awakes in my soul
How quickly I forget I'm Yours
