Lecrae’s song “Say I Won’t” is on steady repeat these days. The beat is fire but the lyrics embody everything that I want my life to stand for. Rebellion is natural for me. I don’t fit into crowds and never wanted to be a part of one. I do my own thing when and how I want to do it without any company or approval from pretty much anyone. I have my select few that I may bounce ideas off of but those are people that I hold in high regard and know beyond doubt that they have my best interest at heart. So when I ran this track that pretty much dares anyone to say what you can’t or won’t do I was hooked. But God, in true form, took it to another level and gave it a much bigger meaning.

Isaiah 41:10-11 Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.(A)

Like many areas in my life, I was trying to cross 3rd base before reaching 1st. As usual, when I slow down and seek direction, the challenge I’m facing ceases to exist. So let me start with showing how looking up a simple definition led to me finding a simple prayer, which led to a simple revelation. Continue reading “Simple Wisdom”
Is Love Ever Blind?
Today it seems I have more questions than answers. Decided I’d share a random thought that came to mind a few days ago that led to some real soul searching and prayer about the topic…
“Love is blind.” Love is blind? Who came up with this saying? What is the idea behind it? What does it mean to you? I was sitting alone thinking of all the people I love or have loved at one point in time and realized I wouldn’t categorize any of them as “blind love.” Love is a strong word and is usually not handed out to just any passerby. I mean, as Christians, we are taught to show love to all people and though we may have love in our hearts for them, it’s not often that they hear the words “I love you.” We save those words for people who have reached our hearts in ways unimaginable. Whether family, friends, or mates those three words are usually reserved for those that hold a special place in our hearts. I can honestly say that the love I share for others is intentional.
