From My Heart
The MOST intense craving, seamless longing, and incessant hunger of my life is to LOVE MY DADDY with wide-armed, reckless abandon - with everything I have, all I know (& ever will know), never counting the cost... to passionately adore Him with an unabridged heart, from the deepest caverns of my soul, the innermost recesses of my mind, and with every thread of my strength... ("Father, I CRAZY love You!!!")
A dialogue between Jesus Christ & Peter, His disciple, is recorded in Scripture in John 21:15-17. That conversation forever changed my life and honed my purpose for being on this planet. To paraphrase, it went something like this: Three times, Jesus asked Peter, "Do you love Me?" Each time, Peter replied, "Yes, Lord, You know I love You." Jesus drove His point home by His repetitious response, "Then, take care of My sheep [My people]."
THE QUESTION: How can I most effectually demonstrate my love & devotion to my Beloved?
MY ANSWER: GIVE MY LIFE AWAY... to bless, serve, & love humanity. (Hence, the song "Given Away" is my heart's anthem sardine-packed in 5:38!)
