Being 20-something part 5: The Love revolution

This the final post in my being 20-something series. The post is inspired by a Joyce Meyer podcast I listened to this week called ‘The Love Revolution’. To summarise it talks about being focused on looking for ways you can add value to people. To be the person who looks for reasons to help, taking action to do what is right and has made giving their lifestyle. I was moved to review my life and the way I have become used to thinking.

Ok… so let’s back track a bit. A few weeks ago I started making some of the final preparations to start recording songs I had written years ago during a very painful time in life. It was a season of change, growth, heartbreak and renewal. I wrote about the experiences because I did not want anyone else to feel as alone and lost as I did. I spent a lot of time reading the Bible and letting God’s Word sink deeply into my mind, heart and soul. I let God take me through the painful, yet strangely liberating growth process. That happened, I wrote my songs and got on with life.

Only problem is I let myself become hardened and lost that raw connection I had with myself and the songs I wrote. That is the position I am in now….Trying to re-connect again. To show my love for others by helping renew minds and sharing my experiences.

In conclusion the one thing completely obvious is we need a love revolution. We need to stop being in our little cocoons  of self pity and obsession, to be able to reach out and love more.

Love will look different to different people but being open instead of closed is a good start.
