Day 17: Reckless Love



I have been striving to be SEEN and HEARD for most of my life,

because I never felt SEEN or HEARD.

Therefore I took that to mean that

I was insignificant, insecure, and unacceptable.

So what is a child to do?

Oh do the dance of performance,

because you believe that if you dance perfectly then you will be SEEN and HEARD.

But oh how exhausting that is

when you are striving to get what you want

yet you don’t get it,

because then

you just strive harder and harder and harder

until you go splat.

And then you are left with yourself

with no more striving left.

But then you have no choice

that turns into the best choice

to LOOK UP

because there is no where else to look when you are on the ground

but up~

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD the MAKER of heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2)

Oh it just takes a split second to take your eyes off yourself

because when

IT'S NOT ABOUT ME

then you make it all about

HIM.

THE HIM who not only SEES & HEARS you, .

but lifts you up

off the ground

that is so supernatural

that it feels as if you are flying~

because when there is nothing left of you

it is all about HIM~

"those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

Oh I don't ever want my eyes to be so fixed on me

that I forget about HIM,

but I know I will

because I am way too human

and GOD knows that

because HE made this human human

and you too,

yet HE never gives up on us

because who gives up on someone HE created?

Oh just look up because

HE is looking at you

no matter how

human you may be

feeling, being, or doing

because

no matter how humanly reckless

we may get

when we make it all about ourself

HE finds us

with HIS

"RECKLESS LOVE" (Listen to the song below).
