Sunday Talk: An Expression of Pure Love
When it comes to women, I get it. From an early age, I have always known how to express my feelings in a way that was both crystal clear, and that spoke directly to the sincerity by which they were said.
I have that down pat.
It’s because of this gift that I often find myself growing increasingly frustrated when I’m unable to express the love that I have for God with that same level of conviction. I find it a bit ironic that I get tongue-tied and flustered—especially when you consider that it was God who gave me this gift of expression in the first place.
I sometimes find myself just looking up at the heavens with an exasperated look that says, “I don’t know how to phrase this perfectly, but I just want you to know that I love you.”
It’s that same type of hesitation that hamstrings many of us when it comes to expressing our true feelings to our loved ones. We torture ourselves into believing that if it’s not JUST RIGHT, then they won’t accept it.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth…
In my case, I’ve come to learn that as long as my words were sincere, then God would welcome them with open arms. The same goes for you, and your expressions of love. It’s time to push away the anxiety, and let the purity of your feelings lead the way.
One of my favorite singers, Mali Music, figured this out long before me, and he offers a great example in one of the most heartfelt love songs that I have ever heard. I couldn’t let this Sunday pass without me sharing my thoughts as well as this song.
Lord if I could buy You a gift
To show You my love, tell You how I feel
It wouldn’t matter what I have to give,
I’d find a way to get it for You
But, fortunately that’s not the case,
And we both know that I don’t have bank anyway
But I won’t let it affect my presentation to You
Cause this is what I bring:
Here is my heart
Lord, here’s my life
Oh Lord! (It’s all that I have to give)
I give You my all
Every song that I write
Every song that I sing
Every day of my life
Every breath that I breathe
You gave to me
Lord I rededicate it right back to You
The love of my life
So Faithful, so True
I get goose bumps just thinking of You
And there’s nothing that I will not do for you*
I give You my best
Cause I Love You
