7 Pounds

So, I watched this movie last night. If you haven't seen it I totally recommend it!
It is such a neat parallel in some respects, as it conveyed a very physical manifestation of what Jesus did in the Spirit. Of course there were aspects of it that were totally not relevant to what Jesus did. It got me though. Against my will my heart was broken over this greater love of laying down ones life. . . The only thing I personally did not like was that the ending wasn't more victorious and hopeful after such an intense story. It is a very reflective movie and very well done.

I really like it when I have such a strong taste of the intensity and love and power of what Jesus did for us. Sometimes it seems as though I am so unaware of His lovely reality and it takes someone spouting off nonsense to wake me up and get my blood flowing. Oh Father, wake me up. Pour over me with your tangible presence. Let me taste deeply and drink of your heart like never before. Take me places with you that I have only seen far off. Take me past my mind and body in awareness of you. I am tired. I am worn down. I need to taste you like never before. I 'know' all the right answers, but I want to experience the Right Answer. I am so tired of trying to smooth things over, figuring things out, trying to control what others around me do. I long for freedom from the constant friction between religion and life. I want your heart fully in my sight. I want to step into alignment with you. I am tired of my intellect barring the way. I 'Know' I have all things, but I want to KNOW you. I am weary of taking a post that you never intended for me. Show me Papa.


  1. Hey there. I'm am so sorry, I got you mixed up with Lydia when you posted a comment on my blog the other day.

    Please forgive me.

    I enjoyed your post on 7 Pounds, though I have not seen it, AND your comment.


  2. No problemo! I wasn't sure how to explain how I wasn't Lydia without making it sound too awkward, so I just said nothing. . :)
