When I Love You

What does it look like when I love you?
What does my heart say?
Do my soul and mind and strength
reveal who I am in You?
What does it look like when I love you?

New words as I study this morning. They’re timely for me because I’m retiring from my day job soon, and I’ve been praying about what God has lined up next for me. So the question is, “For me, what does loving Jesus Christ look like in my life? What do I look like when I’m crazy in love with Jesus?”

The answer? Well, I’m still working on that. But it is taking shape and beginning to look like something. Just a few thoughts…

Music! I want to love The Lord with my hands and voice, and teach others to do the same. Expressing my love for God at the piano is in my bones. I’m excited about having the time to flesh out the songs God gives me.

Writing. I’m a verbally precocious person… Have always been, and I love to write my thoughts and feelings out. I’ve written my prayers for a long time. I itch to write every morning. I’m working on a couple of different children’s books, and without question feel drawn to this blog every day with what God shows me in the music as He sings over me.

Art. When I’m in my happy place and loving The Lord, I want to paint! It stills my anxiety, helps me make order out of chaos and brings me to a centered place. It’s a universal language and I want to help kids find this same sense of peace through art.

We all have different gifts, but one Lord. Whatever I put my hands and heart to, I want to glorify Him in it and through it. I have to admit that I’m more than a little nervous about this huge life transition. But I know God has already got it worked out. I just have to keep loving Him and letting Him show me His plan day by day, minute by minute.

What does it look like when YOU love God? I would love to hear your thoughts. Please leave me a comment and let me know.
