Our God Is A Jealous God…

I’m reminded of how much God loves us.  He loves us enough to sometimes allow things happen to us that aren’t fun but bring us to our knees, reminding us of our need for Him.

God’s jealousy is being played out in someone who I love deeply.  But the cool thing is, I’m watching God’s love win over this person’s sin.  And I’m seeing God’s jealousy for this this person to love the One who created him, come alive and become reedemed.

Every time I have listened to the song, “Slow Your Breath Down” by Future of Forestry, I’ve thought of this person.  God will fight for you and love you even when you’re looking away from him and doing your own thing.  And if you do not believe me, go ahead and ask Him.  Pray to God and ask Him to reveal himself to you.  He will because, He loves you.  Won’t you accept?

Take a listen and read these amazing lyrics.    

This chest is full of memories
Of gold and silver tears
I’ll give you more to own than All of this
And I’ll give you more than years
For you were once a child of innocence
And I see you just the same
Your burdens couldn’t win or
Lose a thing
Oh, I’d tell you once again
But you’re always on the run
Slow your breath down Just take it slow
Find your heart now, oh
You can trust and love again
Slow your breath down, just take it slow
Find your smile now, oh
You can trust and love again, oh…
If you leave I’ll still be close to you
When all your fears rain down
I’ll take you back a thousand times again
I’ll take you as my own
I would sing you songs of innocence
‘Til the light of morning comes
‘Til the rays of gold and honey cover you
In the sweetness of the dawn
But you’re always on the run

Slow your breath down
Just take it slow
Find your heart now, oh
You can trust and love again
Slow your breath down,
just take it slow
Find your smile now, oh
You can trust and love again, oh

You’re not alone!
You’re now a part of me
You feel the cure
I’ll feel the toil it brought you
You’re not alone!
You’re now a part of me
You feel the cure
I’ll feel the toil it brought you
Good, eh?
