Inside Out


128       Today I want to love you from the inside out. Today I will love you from the inside out and shout to the world my undying love for Christ.

Today Christ is my all in all and is my everything. I can do nothing without Him, nor do I want to try. This is my prayer as the day goes on and activities seem to be distracting, I still want to love you from the inside out. From the inside out is were I will show my love for you Oh Lord, because the outside has nothing for me.

    This is how we are to live as Christians with love from the inside out, everlasting love for Christ and other people. If this is how we are to live, my question is why do so many Christians not live this way? If we are to honor God, show love, and give love, why do we fail? I have seen many Christians that I know, well they say they are anyways at church, but out in public, they act like you don’t even exist. I have been ran away from by other “Christians” for no apparent reason and I will continue to pray for them.

    The thing is its sometimes unsettling because it makes me feel less than I know I really am. I to am a new creation with the fundamentals and beliefs of other Christians, but I missed the memo that you also have to be apart of the “cool kids club” even at church to fit in. Yes this is true even at church, if you don’t look the part you don’t get noticed. The most important thing I have ever learned is we don’t go to church for other people, we go to church for God, period. We go to hear what He has to say to us and bring our requests to Him who loves us dearly, and the fellowship with other people is an added bonus. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love seeing my friends at church, but their not the reason I’m there.

   This is were I have learned to love Christ from the inside out, and everything else is just an added bonus. When I love Christ from the inside out, I am able to do more and be of more service to Him and other people. When I love Him from the inside out I can love other people and do what He has called me to do. When I am more concerned with the petty things of the world, or if I go to church just to “hang out,” I have failed God and myself because I put Him at the bottom of the list. Today I choose to love Him and obey Him with all that I have, from the inside out..

Romancing under the Stars.

I ponder the future, thinking about what it would be like to finally find my one true love. Whispering in her ear, candle light dinners, late night conversations and romancing under the stars. Wake up to a priceless gem that God blessed me with to care for and nurture her with love and affection. Praying together and long drives and walks on the beach on a warm summers day are things I think about often. Unfortunately, these things don’t happen enough in today’s society with woman getting involved with “wanna be men.”

Too many times I see wonderful woman with men that don’t respect them for the beauty they truly are. Woman are a gift to men, in their natural beauty and sparkles in their eyes, they long to be loved, but the men don’t know how. Woman long to love like crazy only to be subject to violence, rape, and treated like an object. We live in a culture today that says woman are the leaders and the men just sit back and play video games. Though there is nothing wrong with a woman working or even making more money than the man, but the man still needs to step up and lead their family.

I used to be this way myself, chasing woman and committing adultery like it was a sport, only to be left alone wondering why? My perception back then was the more the merrier. We had drunken orgy’s and affairs till the sun came up trying to prove we were men, only to find out we were just boys.  I dated a lot of wonderful, beautiful woman in my days, and in the end, it was my own selfishness that brought my demise. To often I wonder what it would be like if I had committed to one of these woman and been the man they longed for instead of just a one night stand. But I couldn’t love because I didn’t know how to love. I didn’t know how to love myself let alone a woman.

When I came to Christ on bended knee and confessed my failures and sins, he said “Scott, will you let me romance you under the stars?” This was the begging of a life changing process that only Jesus Christ could carry out. I needed Him and still need Him to teach me every day how to love and how to love woman like the priceless diamond they truly are and not an object to be tossed around and seduced. All men, I believe, need to be taught this lesson every single day; We need Christ to teach us to love, so we can love our beauty’s that stand by our side through thick and thin.

Today, my heart’s desire is to love to the sky and romance under the stars with one that will let me. This is all possible because Christ loved me and has taught me and continues to teach me.
