relationships and love

Luke 22: 50-51" When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?" 50And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51But Jesus answered, "No more of this!"

and that was what ps preston shared about during radical conference. i sure have cut off many ears, hahahaha!!!! :p and that's what Jesus will probably say to all the broken relationships in my life[usually broken by me].

"no more, yining!!!"

ahh! it sucks to the core when you have broken relationships and you're the reason of the crumbling of it!!!! i guess john was really right when he said that those who do not love do not know God because God is love.

my God sure is a love of God:

Zeph 3:17 "The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."

it's so hard to imagine God as a God who's always cheerin' you on and quieting you with his so awesome love!!! 1 john 1:9 tells us that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness!!!! where can we find sucha faithful God who forgives!!! i was just singing "East to West" by Casting Crowns once and suddenly when i sang this part and it hit me hard:

"Cos you know just how far the east is from the west, from one scarred hand to the other."

true ain't it!!!! man, i pray that God give me love, compassion and sensitivity!!!
