Life-giving

These days, I’m soaking in every life-giving word I can find.

I can feel it in my bones, I’m thirsty…

The reminder of my friend Lauren’s words that were spilled out months ago is so refreshing though…

The wrong words spoken over you, or spoken around you, can bring death to your spirit. They can squash who you are and who you are meant to be.

But life-giving words can do just that: Allow you to blossom and live fully as you were meant to live.

I’m remembering to soak it in- the truth, and the hope, and the Gospel that sneaks its way into my everyday life and conversations.

Finding rest in the life-giving words of my recent days….

“We can only keep on going, after all, by the power of God, who first saved us and then called us to this holy work. We had nothing to do with it. It was all his idea, a gift prepared for us in Jesus long before we knew anything about it. But we know it now. Since the appearance of our Savior, nothing could be plainer: death defeated, life vindicated in a steady blaze of light, all through the work of Jesus. This is the Message I’ve been set apart to proclaim as preacher, emissary, and teacher. It’s also the cause of all this trouble I’m in. But I have no regrets. I couldn’t be more sure of my ground—the One I’ve trusted in can take care of what he’s trusted me to do right to the end. So keep at your work, this faith and love rooted in Christ, exactly as I set it out for you. It’s as sound as the day you first heard it from me. Guard this precious thing placed in your custody by the Holy Spirit…”

(The Message, 2 Timothy 1:8b-14)

I’d give my life just to be with You
And I’ll search for You as silver
You are more precious than anything
This world could offer me

So I’m selling everything I have
To gain the only thing that’s worth anything

I’d leave it all in a moment
I’d drop my nets and follow You
And You are the only one who’s worthy
Of everything

You’re fairer than the sons of men
Chief among ten thousand and
There’s never been another one greater
