I was driving yesterday, and I came across a song that has from time to time been very emotional for me. I want to share it with you.
I built another temple to a stranger
I gave away my heart to the rushing wind
I set my course to run right into danger
Sought the company of fools instead of friends
You know I’ve been unfaithful
Lovers in lines
While you’re turning over tables with
the rage of a jealous kind
I chose the gallows to the aisle
Thought that love would never find
Hanging ropes will never keep you
And your love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind
Trying to jump away from rock that keeps on spreading
For solace in the shift of the sinking sand
I’d rather feel the pain all too familiar
Than to be broken by a lover I don’t understand
‘Cause I don’t understand
Basically, we all do this. We are all guilty of neglecting our first love. We all have put our affections into other things. God isn’t just a part of our life. He is our life. We forget that God is jealous to the point of anger. He doesn’t deserve five or ten minutes in the morning or before we go to bed. He deserves our whole day.
God has blessed us more than we could have ever dreamed. I for one, have the most beautiful family in the world. I have wonderful friends and an amazing life. God loves me. He favors me. I am blessed.
I want nothing less than to give Him everything I am. God, forgive us for our unfaithfulness. Help us to be fully surrendered.
