From a broken heart flow many tears. Sometimes you have to just let go and let those tears roll down and gently wash over your wounded soul.
Sometimes I have an experience and I feel I'm supposed to share it. It does make me vulnerable but maybe someone out there needs to hear it.
As I sat with my head bowed low engulfed in the sweetness of the presence of the King amidst the gentle worship that flowed like the oceans tide, washing over me again and again, tears of brokenness began to flow down my face. I just let them flow and flow without resistance, letting go and giving it all to the Lord. He knows every struggle, every wound and every pain that is within me and truly He is gracious and compassionate. I felt no condemnation, heard no voice of blame saying "It's your own fault" … just compassionate love and comfort. I felt like the tears were literally washing over my wounded soul and healing the pain. It's His kindness that draws us close and I could feel that intimacy being restored … my first love … drawing near again to the Lover of my soul. The words of the song came to mind "All I need is You". And right now the words that are flowing through my mind are these
"The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. As far as the east is from the west, that's how far He has removed our transgressions from us."
That's all for now.
last Sunday morning I was thinking about this season and the theme of 'giving' was very much in the forefront of my thoughts. One of the things I love about Christmas is the opportunity to give, the spirit of generosity and good will that is in the air. "It is more blessed to give than to receive" said the King of Christmas who is himself the Gift of God, Eternal and abundant LIFE and the manifestation of pure and perfect LOVE. I thought about the expression we sometimes use, "Give until it hurts" and suddenly my heart was struck with a picture of Jesus hanging on the cross in excruciating agony. It bought instant tears to my eyes and I said to myself ...
"wow, He really gave until it hurt."
Born in a manger to die on a tree for you and for me. How can I not live for Him. His love is amazing.
