“Show me how to love like You.”, a young man prays. “Are you sure?”, Christ whispers. “With all my heart, Lord. Well..with all that’s left of it.”, he replies. “My love never seems to be enough for anyone…”, the young man adds. “I feel you.” his Maker replies. “You do?” the man whispers. “More than you can imagine.” the Son replies with a soft smile.
“I have to tell you, there won’t be anything left of that heart of yours when I show you how. The only way I can show you how is when you surrender to me all of your heart and receive mine in its place.” He said with a soft voice. “but if I give you all of my heart, won’t it kill me?” the young man, replied with fear in his voice.
“Yes, It will.” He replied.
“won’t it kill You,too.” the young man asked.
“It already did…”
“but, now, you have nothing to fear because when I did, I conquered death and the Spirit that brought me back to Life will bring you back too. you have to believe, surrender, and let my heart take over.”
“Okay… I surrender.”
the young man lowers his head, folds his fingers together, closes his eyes and let his heart beat its last.

My Dad and I brought my car to the shop for its 1st 1000 km oil change this morning. We left it there so we had to commute home. As we were crossing the street, my dad instinctively held my wrist as we crossed the road. I’m 24 years old and in that moment,I time traveled back to being 4 years old,crossing the street with my dad. I am grateful he is still with me. I may not be his little boy anymore but I will always be his son.
