The Fearless Love

This afternoon I had some conversation that helped me make some connections, but I didn't really get the connections until I left to get my kids from school and I began to listen to a song. I kept playing the song over and over because there was something that really hit my heart. The phrase that was the most outstanding to me was this: " Bring my heart to everyday, and run the risk of fearlessly loving without running away!"  The thought that came to me was how difficult it can be for me to fearlessly love without running away in some fashion.  To guard myself, to cope in old ways, to create my own shelter so that my heart is protected, this is what I've done for a long time, but now God is saying, "be done with that, completely!"
If I bring my heart to everyday that I live, I am running a great risk. To fearlessly love, even though I feel the risk, and stay put in that love, is big. It's Jesus love!
As I look back over my days, I can see that fearlessly loving has been a huge challenge, so I've loved in safer ways. Oh Lord, have mercy on my heart!
Say That Again, Lord Jesus, life with you can feel risky, love can be painful, but You call me into a life with You, and I'm willing to take the risk.
