So as I was driving to work this morning, I was listening to Tenth Avenue North (an amazing band by the way,) and I heard a song on my Ipod that I've never heard before..I looked up the lyrics and wanted to share part of it.
"well you've been a mistress, my wife
chasing lovers it won't satisfy
won't you let me make you my bride
you will drink of my lips
and taste NEW LIFE.."
I first want to point out, "chasing lovers it won't satisfy." WOW! It's so true, we look all around us for the approval and confirmation from others. Each and every person on this Earth is damaged..a hole in our heart that we try to fill with "things" or people. And one thing that I've learned recently is that "things" and people won't make the hurt go away, it's only a temporary distraction..But HE on the other hand! God fills that hole, He is the dad you never had, the friend you've been longing for, the best boyfriend! He ALWAYS listens, He thinks your beautiful, His blessing for you are countless..He is something that no human being can be for you. And when you realize this, you find that the expectations you've had for everyone around have been too high! We are just people, we aren't perfect, we sin, we will let others down..He is the only one that won't. So look to Him for the confirmation and attention, He EXCEEDS your expectations!!!
And finally, the last part of the song which says "and taste new life" is SO good. Revelation 21:4 says: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new." This is one of the verses I thrive off of, He makes ALL things new, so whatever is in the past is in the past..Today is a new day! So let's put the past behind and SEIZE THE DAY! How can you be a blessing in someones life today? What giftings has God given you, how can you use them for His glory today? Have an amazing and beautiful day =)..
Until next time,
