God invites us to a love experience, but it’s call to intimacy will take us beyond comfortable. If we accept the encounter, we will live like we used to dream.
Album: Don’t Get Comfortable
Title: Don’t Get Comfortable
I like predictability. He and I became fast friends throughout the years. Whenever life threw me a curve ball, I’d jump to the side and fall back on routine and safety nets.
We’re only young once. I should be so lucky, to have some dreams tucked away, before they ripened and fell off the tree of grown-up realities.
Somewhere along the way, I got comfortable with settling in with the way things had worked out.
The Town of Contentment
Through many dangers, toils and snares, God miraculously brought me to a place called Contentment.
It’s been a wonderful place of surrender, this town Contentment.
I began to set up shop downtown, built my cabin a few miles up along the ridge. A vigorous hike to and from the daily hustle bustle, I retired in the evenings to my room, my books, and a warm kettle of tea.
Until one day, someone rode into town.
He stood tall and handsome.
One look into his eyes. I knew who it was.
A Pioneering Life of Love
It’s God. Now that He’s got me where He wants me, He’s asking to take me on horseback and ride out further west.
A pioneering life, He calls it. Will you come with Me?
God is love. As such, His aim is to capture me alone and take me outside of my comfortable existence.
His heart is set on winning me over to new heights, unseen experiences and deeper levels of companionship.
Riding Away To Uncomfortable Bliss
Today’s Worship Smoothie comes to you from a hand that has clasped the One who called to me that day.
Everyday, He continues to offer me a taste of uncomfortable bliss.
Others who have gone on ahead have written to assure me in the Scriptures, the uneasiness will increasingly grow into second nature.
What may feel uncomfortable will become a wildflower called Faith.
When I heard the lyrics to this song, something in me moved:
I just want to show you what I mean
I just want to love like you’ve never seen
Do you want to live like you used to dream?
This is your new song.
Can you feel the call of love?
Is it moving you to be a child of God of love?
Is it reaching you?
It’s everywhere the call of love.
Happy Friday, my fellow faith travelers.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful song.
As you enter into the weekend, may His call to love move mountains and move you into bliss.
