We Belong Together

We Belong Together

For I am Yours and You are mine.

It’s a line of the song Oceans, by Hillsong United — a song that encapsulates the ideas of facing big struggles, turning to Jesus, and resting in His embrace. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the month of May, God-sized Dreams is exploring  these issues as presented through the lyrics of the song.

I’m writing there today.

For I am Yours and You are mine.

When I read or hear the lyric above, it resonates deep. This mutual love, this perfect possession of each other’s hearts — it’s what I crave most with God…

For I am God’s, and He is mine.
For we give ourselves to each other fully.
For God loves me, and I love him.

When I see a Christian living out her faith vibrantly, I know she’s got it bad for God. And, she can’t stop thinking about Jesus either. In fact, I bet she’s totally wrapped up with the Holy Spirit. Love, the way it glows in her heart, outshines the dark confusion of a world that tells her that her love and faith and hope make no sense.

Like her, when it comes to God, I can’t be concerned about logic. Because, if I was, I’d know our love story doesn’t compute.

For I am Yours and You are mine.

The God of the entire universe knows me better than I know myself. He has planned all my days, and holds me every second of my life, wanting nothing more than to be close to me? {Really? Doesn’t He have better things to do than hang around with flawed, sinful, selfish me? He does have a whole cosmos to run.}

Join me for the rest of the story?
