Maybe that is why He made us with a vulnerability that is as much a part of us being human as our senses. Maybe being vulnerable isn't a bad thing? It helps us remember that we are *not* and weren't meant to be Him. Maybe it allows us to see (if we listen to our hearts) that He made us out of such a deep, deep love. Maybe we aren't *meant* to be "perfect" that He loves us inspite of our imperfections.
If you get still and listen *real* close - you will hear more than your own heart beat - you will hear the cry of your heart. If you really are honest with yourself, you'll recognize that cry is for your Creator. There is a part of us - a very large part of our hearts that knows that it cannot be filled with anything but Him. That emptiness you are feeling? Have you tried to fill it with something else? That is only a substitute. It was meant for Him and ONLY Him. That part of us is reserved for Him. Whether we admit it or not - it is part of who we are. Part of who we were made to be.
My soul cries out for my Creator. Although sometimes the sound of the world around me distract me (as it does you). But as round about things as we may go - we always come back to the need inside of us. The need for Him.
There is a thirst that can only be quenched with the recognition and acknowledgement of WHY we were created and for WHO. Deny it, ignore it, drown it out - but it will always, always, always be there. Testimony of Him is all around us. HE is all around us.
Our bodies are frail. They were made to be temples which house who we *really* are. They are a shell. Sometimes we don't realize how fragile they are until something happens to draw our attention to it. For me, it was breast cancer. Why is it that we don't see what it is that has always been before us? That is why it is so important to respect your body. To take care of it. To praise Him for we are truly wonderfully and magnificiently made. What a God we serve? What a Creator... Every part of us was thoughtfully and lovingly put together. Think about all the physical enjoyment He has provided our bodies to experience. TELL ME that is NOT love? He didn't have to make us that way. Eyes to see, Noses to smell, fingers to touch, ears to hear.... We were made like a love song. And each time a life is created, it is a new song. A one of a kind song. How could you not love a God who is so full of love? No wonder the Heavens rejoice in praise and worship. He is WORTHY of honor, glory and praise. And I for one am glad - that no matter where I am in my journey. No matter how many mistakes or "wrong turns" I make. No matter where I feel I am spiritually. There is a song in my heart - that is meant NOT for man. But for HIM.
