Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

Five Minute Friday: Loud

It's time to write and join up with Lisa-Jo's crew at The Gypsy Mama. Today we're writing for five minutes on; Loud.


Whirling, swirling, pulsing star song, shouting out praise day after day. Blue whale, whistling, groaning, trilling, singing for his daily bread, depending on a heavenly hand. Waves and clouds, thunder clap, beating out a steady base praise, ceaseless applause.

An undercurrent of hate and groaning. Curse and lies try to drown out the glory, voices raised in angry rebellion. Smaller voices whisper pleas, calling for justice. A discordant accent to the song of glory.

Louder than everything else rings out a love song. A song with roots in time not known by mere mortals, birthed in forever, a holy Three in One song of perfect love. A song we've been invited to sing, Calvary taught us the melody, holiness perfects the tune. On this pulsing planet we are the loud song of love, sung back to the Father, sung out to the dieing. Love out loud.

"Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16


Truly it amazes me that God has invited us into the love song the Father, Son, Spirit have been singing to each other for eternity. His love is magnified to this tired old world by the fresh song of love sung by his children. It matters if we choose to live in love, to remain silent is an affront to the love we've been given.

What does the song of love you're singing sound like? Is it to your family, the co-worker that aggravates you, the widow next door. The song you're singing matters, live it loud!

{Just a quick note. I have the opportunity to share at my friend Ellen's amazing blog today, These Broken Vases. I'm talking about God's desire to transform our brokenness with his powerful truth. Hop on over for a visit and let Ellen know you dropped by!}
