Love Aware: Day 2

Awaken me, O Lord
early in the day,
Allowing a special time
for just You and I.

Keep my thoughts anchored,
Set a Foundation for this time.
A pace and place that will resonate
With each turn and tide.

If my thoughts stray,
Or cease to glorify –
Awaken me from my stupor
So I may refocus my purpose.

Towards you, I desire to live
In your service and setting
Whether alone – or in a crowd
Give my thoughts a secure path.

Let not my foot fall outside of it.
Protect me, please, if I stray
And gently align me again
So that I may be always aware…

Of your presence,
Of your power
Your enduring love and faith
With gratitude and love in return.

Love Aware: Day 1

O Lord, I know you’re there,
Actually here, and always. Everywhere.
And yet I desire, as you must too,
for me to draw and grow ever near to you.

In your word I read,
By Spirit’s guidance I feel,
And all evidence shows
How Jesus lives for real.

I’ve fallen short many times,
to show my faith and wonders.
I’ve made mistakes big and small,
Some permanently damaging blunders.

This morning a gut-check:
Your voice says, “Do these 100 days,
Do so unto God as audience,
Make a joyful noise with praise.”

“To shine a light so others can see
What comes out from me to you
Provide an obedient example,
So others might love me too.”

To grow in love, draw immediately near
God is and always had been hear
Abide vulnerably without fear.

Love Aware: The 100 Day Project

Love Aware Day 1

Today begins The 100 Day Project, a celebration of making.

Reading about #The100DayProject, this caught my eye:

A process of surrender, a practice of showing up.

Quickly and crystal clear, as if hearing God’s voice, I knew what my project would be.

Surrender and Show Up

I love the Pslams. A combination of prayer, praise, confession, and love letters to God. Looking at Psalm 100:

  • Make a joyful noise
  • Serve the Lord with gladness
  • Come before Him with singing
  • Know that the Lord is God
  • Enter with thanksgiving
  • Bless His name

My project? Love Aware – 100 days of love letters to God.

With great anticipation, I am looking forward to the transformation sure to take place during this love affair I call Love Aware.
