“Do we even know what LOVE is?
I was listening to Misty’s new albums. (Misty Edwards)
And one of them talks about what love truly is…
No one enjoys the chance of being rejected.
No one enjoys the chance of being hurt… or worse… hurt again.
But God commands that you shall love me. And we’re to love each other.
Not the ones we pick & choose. Everyone.
It hurts to leave your arms spread wide open & not grasp your heart when people get close.
It hurts to not flinch.
It hurts to leave your heart exposed on the table.
It’s a beautiful thing. A miserable thing.
Thank God that He didn’t flinch.
Thank God that Jesus didn’t jump off the cross & go up with a bunch of angels to Heaven.
He loved me enough to keep His heart wide open in the midst of pain.
He loves you that much too.
He was thinking of you… literally… at that moment on the cross.
He knew where you would go, do… and who’d you become.
He did it all for you.”
