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.
