True Love

There is a song that I love because it tells part of my story, it is written by Jason Gray, it goes like this,


Give me rules, I will break them
Show me lines, I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet

Its gotta be
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
Its like I'm falling,
Its like I'm falling in love

Give me words, I'll misuse them
Obligations, I'll misplace them
Cuz all religion ever made of me
Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free

Its gotta be
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
Its like I'm falling
Its like I'm falling in love

Love, Love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made me a believer
In more than a name, a faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me


I have spent the last 12 years in religion. Saved, born again, but not understanding who God is. And totally missing who I am, the one He loves. He is bigger and better and very much different than I once believed. Sincerely believed. I'm falling in love with God. It is an issue of my heart, not a mental consent to believe. When we believe on a heart level, we are passionate and full of unquenchable enthusiasm. As His bride, I suppose that is how we're supposed to be, right? We marry the one we love. He is beckoning us, calling us to Himself. In Truth. 

In the next few days, as God allows, I would like to share my story with you. Maybe you will be able to  relate. Maybe through my story you will begin to see your own and maybe just maybe you will find this amazing Love. God is no respecter of persons. He wants us all to love Him. He really loves us! And maybe some of you already have this going on, and you can rejoice with me, and pray.

Glory be to God,

renee

I really like that song too, I like the part where he says;
"Cuz all religion ever made of me
was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free"
This is so true, when we get caught up in the "rules" we miss the point. I have been there and sometimes find myself back there, it doesn't feel good, like love should. You almost feel like you are constantly missing the mark, never quite living up to what you should be.For me, I think that sometimes I have a hard time understanding Gods love because I feel so inadaquate. I am still learning and praying that God will continue to reveal His love to me. Jesus says that we are to "learn" from Him, He will teach us!

I very much can agree with those words the past year has been a very life changing season for me I have found true Love like never befor. I know I don't have it all yet but that is the fun part about knowing Jesus he gives you what you need at the moment.
Thanks for posting
