I love books :)
And I'm so not even kidding :P
"We are an odd race capable of both martyrdom and murder, poetry and rape, worship and abortion. And Christianity explains why: we are both the Spirit-breathed children of God and the expelled rebels of the kingdom. In the ways that matter most, we're all from the Garden of Eden. We've all listened to the snake. Yet we're also children of the Father. We are far worse than we would ever on our own admit and loved by God more deeply than we would ever dare to dream. We are both worthless and priceless, terrorist and saints, lost and homeward bound."
-Sailing Between the Stars

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes, but
You have new mercy for me everyday
Your love never fails

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night
But joy comes in the morning
And when the oceans rage
I dont have to be afraid
Because I know that you love me
And your love never fails

The wind is strong and the waters deep, but
Im not alone here in these open seas
Cause your love never fails

The chasm was far too wide
I never thought Id reach the other side
But your love never fails

You make all things, work together for my good
-Jesus Culture
I love this song.
It reaches down in me and pulls at my heart.
We sang it today at Mosaic.
I forget myself as the words wash over me and I cry out the words--
Because I know they are truth.
But sometimes it's hard to remember that sometimes.
I know God's love never fails.
I know.
I know.
Ask me about it and that's what I'll tell you.
But do I believe it?
Does do my actions shout that to the world?
Deep down sometimes I don't think I quite know it.
Part of me is scared that he loves like people love.
How I love.
God, open my eyes and help me see.
