To love deeper. What does that look like? I suppose it sounds a bit cliche to some. Like it’s the “right” thing to say. But as I look ahead to 2011, my heart truly longs for this to be so. As I build relationships and grow the ones I’ve already formed, I want to show love as God has shown me. My goals are vast, but the driving force is the same for all of them. I want to love people in a way that reflects Christ. It’s not always going to be easy, but it is always worth it.
Yesterday as I was driving home, I heard “Dancing in the Minefields” for the first time. This song so perfectly depicts what Christ-centered love looks like. The fact that it’s not always easy, but “that’s what the promise is for”. I sat in my car and cried tears of joy (I’m a sap, what can I say?). I’m officially obsessed with not only the song, but the video as well. I encourage you to watch it.
Happy New Year!
