Passivity vs Passion

What a lazy blogger i am. . . Personally I think my laziness is why God is so fond of me. . . ha ha. That way it is quite clear that it is Him, when something wonderful happens and i am left without a doubt. . .

Did that make sense? Of course i don't really believe that, but I could not resist saying such an inane thing!

I am a lazy blogger, because i go to all these wonderful blogs and hear all the wonderful things people are thinking and hearing and then I go to bed. I rarely comment, I hide in the shadows, luking here and there. But tonight, i have decided to pop out for a moment and say 'Hi'. Hi!

Actually, I kind of coast from blog to blog enjoying my ride. And because the ride is so pleasant and encouaraging I generally lack the inclination to write. Because there are so many people of sound mind, that I just keep going on. . . It's when i get to a blog where there is such insanity that I feel compelled to throw in some lovely freedom truth. It is there that i see such a barreness of freedom and all of a sudden I feel a "charge" in my spirit and off i go. . .


Jesus is my passion

And I had this thought the other day

Nothing overly profound - it's been said before - however, yet again I was seeing how "there is No passivity in the Love of God".

His Love is awesome and wonderful and graceful and fearful. Because Love is all those things. You don't mess with Love's Child, for Love is not passive. That is why all that mamby pamby new age feel good yoga stuff is not the answer. Because my father LOVES me and Love is dangerous and wonderful and unpredictable and perfect! Who knows what'll happen next! Not safe, but safe. Wonderful dichotomy!

Good night

Lately, while reading Matthew's blog and related blogs I have found myself weeping. It is rather inexplicable. . . There is such an utter transparency I see there than causes me to cry. I see such a child-likeness that is simplicity and beauty. I feel myself propelled toward the heart of God which beckons me come and abandon all. Which gentle voice tells me that it the place I long to be.

I take the blame

It is the most wonderful freeing thing to know that when you've just done something stupid, be it large or small, that Jesus takes the blame for it all! All our imperfections gone! Taken by Jesus Himself! I want to upload the song 'Blame' by LSU. . . I am going to have to figure out how to upload music to blogger. I've never tried to do anything more technical than upload pics, so. . . But the song is so wonderful to listen to and actually believe!

Jesus always whispering to our hearts.'I take the blame'

What joy, what peace, what fellowship!

Some great songs. . .

Here are some lyrics from a band called LSU. It is from their album Grace Shaker.
Brilliant Lyrics:

striving for the answer
in fighting for the streets of gold
hope you're not forgotten
you wonder if you've killed your soul
i've heard the words of judgment
but not from the one i know

it falls down on me
it falls down on you
grace falls free
the proud feel the need to work the loom
yet grace falls free

holding up to heaven
the winnings of your plow
look into the poor man
show him what he must do now
you've got all the answers
but he's got a book that shows him how

it falls down on me...

think about the river
how it always flows
they're still digging in the desert
but that's not where this river goes
it's filled with all the living
and quenches every wantin' soul

it falls down on me...


[I so hear Jesus saying this to us!]

I 'll pick you up when you go down
I'll fight your battle everytime
I'll ride with you to bring you round
Though the doubts form in your mind

Oh I take the blame

So if your mind hurts from this sound
You can't see beyond this wall
Forget that heavy load right now
I'll be the one to take the fall

I take the blame
I take the blame
I take the blame
I take the blame

Right now

I'll show you heaven in this town
You'll have to love more than you know
When it all starts to fall down
Just trust in me and I will show you how

I'll take the blame

It would appear that I started something that I am not keeping up. I find myself writing less and less these days (unless someones blog really spurs me). But there is always hope.
