For the longest time this song didn’t really have a title.. I just knew we’d live differently if we knew why we were here.. and by we, I mean especially me.
“I’ll embrace the space you created for me.. “ is where it starts. “Give me YOUR heart” is where it ends.
Somehow, embracing the lives that we’ve been given has everything to do with if we have learned to love like God does.
Him first (Luke 10:27) with all our strength. Ourselves, and one another the same.
It means ascribing worth to what we carry - ascribing worth to Who gave it to us, and ascribing worth those who depend on us to give it away.
It means seeing ourselves as God sees us - worthy, able, cherished, and so uniquely prized that we're literally one of a kind. It means finding a way to unapologetically live that out. It means that once we get a handle on just how much God's perfect & abounding love gives us permission to abide safely in Him - we do just that, but we don't go at it alone. We bring others along.
Alive? You’re supposed to be. Gifted? You’ve got something to give. In a life-changing relationship with Jesus? Definitely, don't keep that to yourself.
