What a Beautiful Name

For those that really know me can testify that my love language is music!  I know, I know it’s  not a chapter in “The 5 Love Languages” but I believe Mr.Chapman must have accidently left this one off the list because I KNOW it is mine! One of my favorite memories is the night Arvid drove into my driveway on Woodmeade to pick me up for our first date. I should have known from the moment I slid into the passenger seat of that little green S-10 that it was destined for us to marry and live happily ever after when I heard what he was playing in his cassette player. So with “Jock Jams” blaring from the truck speakers, we pulled out of that driveway not realizing that God had already written the next chapters of our lives filled with music, dancing, mountain tops, valleys, laughter, tears, and so much more but the best part of those upcoming chapters was that they would be filled up with us…until death do us part.

In the most difficult and painful seasons of my life, God has used music to speak to my soul. Those deep, deep crevices of my soul that long to be whole again. Music seems to wraps itself around my heart and into those empty places in a way like nothing else can. I am beyond thankful that our God loves us so very intimately and personally. It blew me away when I finally grasped that The Creator of the universe knows and loves every single detail about us so much that He even speaks to us in our own love language. Have you ever stopped and thought about what stirs your soul or calms you like nothing else can?  What does that for you? Soaking in His vast creation or maybe it’s the words in a book that reach those deep unreached places. Maybe it’s curling up on the couch wiith a cup of coffee…no children or the world needing you…just you and the stillness that doesn’t come often but you can feel the presence of God wrapped around you like a warm blanket. Maybe it is in the music and lyrics of a song like He so beautifully sings over me. If you are thinking I have no idea what this crazy lady is talking about, I challenge you to pay close attention to those moments when you are feeling overwhelmed, broken or even dead on the inside and then in a moment something changes…you feel a breeze of peace against your soul, your hopelessness starts to fade and you feel a strength stirring within you when you thought you may never feel anything again. Those, my friend, are the moments when The Lover of your soul sweeps in and breathes His love in you like nothing or no one else can! I pray you don’t miss Him. That you don’t miss out on those intimate moments…those miracle moments that only His presence can usher in. Just look and you will find Him there. He never leaves us and He will never forsake us, we only need to call out His name and He will come running! Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…What a Beautiful Name!

I will leave you tonight with this little taste of God’s sweet love He poured out on me this week. I have soaked in every word over and over and over again like a drought stricken ground does when rain finally falls. I pray you not only find the love language He uses to speak to you but that you will let it break down every wall so He can enter into every broken place within you and do what only he can do! Because He is enough, Even If…

Zephaniah 3:17 “The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
