This morning, it was hard for me to read the Word. I wanted to so deeply feel something as I read the truth spoken by God in Genesis, but I just couldn’t. The possibility of not passing this semester crossed my mind. The thought of missing a deadline for my job distracted me. The lack of time spent in the gym this week put me on a guilt trip. So I closed my journal and Bible, and played my Pandora radio. The song “This Love” by Housefires played, and completely broke my walls. Towards the end of that song, my Bible app notified me of the verse of the day, 2 Corinthians 3:17 — “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” God knew just what to say.
As the weight of the world hones in on me, as I’m swayed to believe I’m not good enough, I can rest in these truths portrayed in that song:
“This love, is an everyday kind of love. Every morning, I’m in it
This love, is an everyday kind of love. Every evening, I’m in it
This love doesn’t leave me alone; it never forgets its own
This love won’t leave me because my past is bad
This love lifts me up above the waves; I don’t need to be overwhelmed.
It raises me upon a rock so my feet can finally stand on ground.
This love is every moment, of everyday, always.
This love makes it so that you can finally be free.”
