When my husband goes out of town, I go c-r-a-z-y! Crazy, I tell you! I don’t make my bed nor don the pretty pillows. I don’t wipe down the shower with the squeegee. I don’t make a nice meal with nice dishes. I don’t put on make-up.
What I do do is play music….really loud! I don’t know if I just never got enough of that as a teen or what my issue is, but I love to play music and I love to turn it up until the bass starts thumping!
Today, as I made breakfast for my girls, my worship music was cranking and I felt a flood of joy, peace and anticipation. Starting our day with praise to my Love set my heart rejoicing. It made me realize just how desperately I need Him. As I danced around my kitchen and sang as loud as I could, at first I thought “My girls will think I am crazy!” But then I thought, “No, my girls will just witness a mom who is crazy in love with Jesus!”
I went on to read Isaiah 55: 1 – 2. Click here to read it as it is written. I took this portion and made it my prayer for today:
Lord, I am coming! I am thirsty and I am coming to the waters. I have no money, but I am coming to receive from you what you freely give me. Lord, I do not want to spend my emotions and energy on what doesn’t satisfy me. I am listening to You; You give me what is good. You give me the best that this life has to offer. I am coming, Lord, so that I can truly live! Thank you for your promise, Your promise of a love that is faithful and goes out to me for forever. Amen
Friend, we don’t have to wait for our husbands to be gone or for anything else in our lives to be different before we can go crazy! Today, we can run hard after Jesus like He is running after us!
Be an example of a woman gone crazy to your girl. If you aren’t crazy about Him or your girl is not crazy about Him, go crazy together! “His Revolutionary Love” is a great resource to help you do that! And I’ll help you…just shoot me an email at Lynn@LynnCowell.com and I’ll send you a free guide!
Be sure to stop back by on Friday. I’ll be giving away a signed copy of Renee Swope’s new book, “A Confident Heart”.
