Humility vs. Pride

The more I spend time here at Covecrest, diving into scripture and into this rhythm of life that flows out of prayer, the more I am realizing why God has lead me to this holy place. I am prideful. I somehow have managed to make my heart believe that God can love everyone to the fullest, but that love can’t really apply to me. His love is so unfathomable, His sacrifice so great, His mercy so infinite, that my mind can’t wrap itself around that. Come to think of it, why would I need to even wrap my mind around His greatness? If I could, God would not be who He is – the Alpha and Omega, the great I AM. I need to realize that just because my mind can’t wrap itself around His love for me, does not mean that His love for me is not real. All He asks of me is to just embrace that love, to rest in His love – to let Him be who He is. I can’t wait for the day when I can fully surrender to the love He has for me. So God has lead me here, to love me. So simple yet at the same time so radical. I can’t wait. Whew :)

How He Loves

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…
