Beloved

Standard

I love the word “beloved.” It appears through scripture when God speaks to His Bride, to His church.  What an incredibly intimate and romantic God, that He would name you, me, us “beloved.” I love the way is sounds when I hear Him whisper it to me. I love the way it feels when I read it in scripture.  It literally means “to be greatly loved, dear to the heart.”

We are greatly loved by the God and Creator of the universe.  We are held dearly to the tender heart of Christ.

An ever-present desire and prayer of my heart it to be romanced by Him, to know the endless love that He freely offers.  Salvation, redemption, restoration–it’s all there for the taking. Life is in His hands and they are open.

What an incredible truth to cling to.

I recently realized that my life is somewhat of a beautiful mess. A "pollack-type-picture" if you will, of colors, experiences, and people that, despite the seeming disarray, is captivating & confusing; patterened & yet unpredictable. But most of all, it is mysteriously designed, purposed, and appointed. For what? I don't know yet... but I'm learning as I go.

  1. Thank you so much — I needed this today! Did you happen to choose a word for 2010? Maybe you’d like to keep this one going — “Beloved?” What a beautiful word and music!

  2. Wow..that is powerful. Juli Jarvis directed me here because she knows my one word for 2010 is love.

    This particular song goes along well with some Francis Chan sermons I’ve been listening to…the concept that we are Christ’s bride and what it means to live in anticipation of our glorious wedding day….what are we doing daily to get ourselves ready.
