Welcome to our table, of sorts. Pull up a chair. Welcome to our new place to listen and to speak. Welcome to our place to grow as we talk this month about our lives full of love.
“…The great thing to remember is that, though our feelings come and go, His love for us does not. It is not wearied by our sins, or our indifference; and, therefore, it is quite relentless in it’s determination that we shall be cured of those sins, at whatever cost to us, at whatever cost to Him.”
~C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity
Recently, we sang the words, “Love came down and rescued me. Love came down and set me free. I am Yours. I am forever Yours.” Do we or can we even comprehend what that means?! We’ve been rescued and set free from our sins by LOVE. We are now able to live a life in reflection and response to this: a life full of love.
God is relentless in His love for us. He has chosen us and given us the ability to love another. It is now our choice HOW we choose to live this out.
This month, we will explore what it means to live a life full of love, what it means to love ourselves or someone else–even when it’s difficult, and to love in the overflow. We encourage you to head over to the “Voices” tab and read what some of our women have said about those topics this week.
Our “Health & Home” tab has some fabulous words from our very own Megan Dahlman on the Pure Pursuit of Health and Fitness.
Lastly, we want to introduce you to our beautiful Lisa Hefner who has been in conversation with our God about love and loving Him.
“When I found Him whom my soul loves, I clung to Him and would not let Him go.”
Song of Songs 3:4b
Oh how I love this scripture! It paints a picture of what our hearts, as women, should be towards God. A love so desperately needed and found. An insight into God’s heart and desire for a life for us, His Bride. Out of this relationship, we will have everything we need to face the world and all of its demands.
King David understood this Love. He took the time to get to know God, worship Him, and learn who He is. Psalms and Proverbs depict all of the relationship that he had with his Lord. God called David the “Apple of His Eye”. To be called that by God…!
We are his chosen ones. His beloved. He created us and longs for us to know and love Him. He wants to walk with us as He did Adam and Eve in the garden. He desires to speak to us, through His word and Spirit. He aches to lavish us with every good and perfect gift. God needs to be found by us. May we be relentless women in our pursuit of Him. May we find ourselves clinging to Him, and never letting go.
