Life Motivated By Love


Life Motivated By Love

Living a life motivated by love
Is not about you and a lover holding hands or about getting the money you possibly can. It is about knowing what love is.
Simple answer: Jesus Christ.
Harder answers... Everything but.

What keeps us from living in love?
Money and selfishness.
Society and pleasure.
Everything but.

Society has changing and reformed the idea of love.
It has been tainted. God says
"My son"
"My daughter"

"If i cannot judge you no one can. Who's court could ever sentence you?!"
So God,

I am a broken pottery work,
Shine your light THROUGH me!
I beg of you,
Let me shine my love upon this evil world!
I will not break! For I am already broken!
Perfect, you said.
Perfectly imperfect.

All evil,
There is no more wrath!
My God will tear you apart in the process of loving you!
You don't think that God see all of who you are!?
God knew you'd be messy! That you would Fail, stumble, feel dirty, judged, self loathing, awkward.
He knew you'd be tempted be what is wicked!
THAT'S WHAT THE CROSS IS ALL ABOUT! The redemption of your soul, "who'd save you" BUT NO ONE CARES!
He is so powerful that he makes each of us



It is God's love that justifies!

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
