MORE LIKE FALLING IN LOVE...
Its gotta be
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
Its like I'm falling
Its like I'm falling in love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made me a believer
In more than a name, a faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me
This song really resonates with me at the moment. Especially a particular phrase, IT'S GOTTA BE MORE LIKE LOSING MY HEART THAN GIVING MY ALLEGIANCE . I have been a baptized believer for many years, but really LOVING him, really experiencing the joy of my salvation is what I'm wanting. Then there's that word - allegiance - makes me think of the hundreds of times I have pledged my allegiance to the flag of our country. Is my Christianity a rote one? Have I have been GIVING MY ALLEGIANCE to him, but not LOSING MY HEART to him?
I think about when I "fell in love" with my husband. What did I feel? How did I respond? Giddy. Eager to be with him. Wanting to please him. Put my best foot forward for him. Sometimes I was up and down the emotional roller coaster. So when I think about falling more in love with Jesus, I have to ask myself: Am I eager to spend time with Him, in prayer, in His Word? I am not always able to slow down and take the time to do these things, even when I have it "on my schedule" to do it first thing in the morning. Excuses, excuses. A convicting thought. I know that our Christian walk is going to involve ups and downs. We are not always going to be having mountaintop experiences. But I can still work on the relationship, as I do with my husband.
Think about falling in love with Jesus today!
