Imagining a heartbeat

It is possible to lose our imagination, our capacity¬†to say that something lives, even though it doesn’t exist. It is possible to get our imagination back, but it will take audacity .

The Bible says, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work in us.” (Ephesian 3:20) God wants us to imagine. But do we dare?

I sometimes get scared of others’ opinions, and as night follows day, I lose my imagination. Other times I dare… Today I rode a comet with a flaming tail. Yesterday I sat with a depressed hippo in a lake. Tomorrow…

It only takes one idea to put an imaginary world into space. I do it through writing. What about you? What idea will you bring to life?

Toxic love

I’ve always thought that love is good...

The experts say that we all have a love language, and that each of us wants to be loved. A smile. A hug. A heart-to-heart chat. These are good.¬†But, there are also broken languages of love…

Some think that love will only come through manipulation: “If you love me, you will do what I want.” Others think it will come when they are worshipped: “If you love me, you will put me first in your life.” Should we risk it and fulfill their demands?

I have learned the hard way that it isn’t a good idea. It develops a toxic kind of love where both are destroyed and hurt… Only God can satisfy our deepest heart. Let’s point those we love to him.
