if you really knew

The book is coming along, dear friends! Thank you for ALL the sweet encouragement and love. Means the world and I will be honored if you take time to read it... it is my heart on paper and a love letter to you. More on that Wednesday :)

But today, I want to share a little somethin' with you... along with an outfit!

I've been thinking about how misrepresented the Lord can be. How people can say they are acting and working for God, but they aren't. How we can misunderstand who He is. 

When He is mercy. Grace. Love.... love, love love. 

Jesus loves you oh so much. And I want you to know that today. 

If you really knew - you would change your mind. 
If you knew the God I know, you would have the time.....

an old, old song. but i love it. 

"What you don't know can lead you to the extremes
Shunning help though you feel a need

You fear to be caught limping and you lose your place

And leaning on the everlasting arms is not your taste
Maybe you've heard those stories, laughed at what you saw on TV

Or felt disgust as He was used an excuse for bigotry

But I've got to tell you, that's not what it's all about

'Cause the truth I know will turn you around


If you really knew
You would change your mind

If you knew the God I know

You would have the time
If you take a chance
I know you will find

Everything you need in love of another kind


I too have been hurt by those who claimed to show the way
It was crazy, their two faces like night and day

But you don't stop believing 'cause you once been burned

In everything there's a lesson learned
Man is imperfect, there is just one perfect soul

So much more loving than than one that you've been shown

How long is it gonna take for you to realize?


I apologize to you on behalf of the untrue
Because the God I know would never do the things they do

Mercy and compassion on the right and on the left

Can you give anymore than your last breath?
Oh, too hard to see, well, put your mind aside
And stop using fear to hide behind


God's love is enough for you,
And it's waiting if you only knew."

  7. Hi sweet friend :D This was such a fun post. That song has so much truth in it. I think often times people who don't know Christ look to those of us who say we do, and we aren't always good representation of the kingdom. This is a subject near to my heart, because my mother was asked to leave a church when I was little. It's not easy being shunned by those who you expect to love you like Christ. When I look back on it now though I know they were just people..people who are imperfect, and people who make mistakes. Not excusing what they did, or calling it right..but remembering that Christ never turns his back on us. Thank you for your words today. Have a great week! xo
