wishing i am more desperate than i am now after reading this:

"Desperate is a strong word. That's why I like it. People who are desperate are rude, frantic and reckless. Desperate people are explosive, focused, and uncompromising in their desire to get what they want. Someone who is desperate will crash through the veil of niceness. The New Testament is filled with desperate people--people who barged into private dinners, screamed at Jesus until they had his attention, or destroyed the roof of someone's house to get to him. People who are desperate for spirituality very seldom worry about the mess they make on their way to be with Jesus."

let it be forever

it's been awhile since my last visit. i am just dropping by with this old song that my cousin's and me loved so much 12 or so years ago. keeping this on replay for 4 days now :-)

In a world of broken hearts, love is just a word
Used so often, what it means is blurred
People grow so hungry for a love they can believe
Will they find it here in you and me?
Oh, you know you must be careful
If it's love you're promising
You can never, never, ever speak it lightly
It should cost you everything
Love has come from God and in this love we share
People see an image of Him there
It can be an invitation that leads to deeper truth
The kind of love they find in me and you
Oh, but we can be a witness
Right before their eyes
A living love that's rooted in
The very love of Christ

I don't know what this world may think of love
Oh, but let our hearts remain true
To the notion that love goes beyond just emotion
Into faith, into hope, into trust
