Sunday Selah

i love god

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life~
Deut. 30:19-20

I love God.

It's that simple.

I knew it as a child. I know it still. I love Him.

It's just there, like a song I can't get out of my head.

I love Him.

I love God.

It's that complicated.

When things don't make sense, when that love means I choose a more difficult path, when I swim upstream against the current of the crowd.

Loving Him can make life seem more colorful and also more formidable. Living to please Him complicates my relationship with my self. My self. The self that wants to lead in my own understanding. The self that wants to believe I can guide through my own wisdom.

Loving Him creates a bedrock of faith and gives wings to soar in the soul. Loving Him keeps me grounded and keeps me dreaming. Loving Him answers so many questions and creates so many more.  Loving Him means I know my destination but not always my route. Loving Him means I love life and I am willing to lay it down. Loving Him means I venerate the mountains and then in faith tell them to move. Loving Him means loving even those who won't love me back.

I love God.

That is my constant.

And in that being my constant, He changes everything.
