 Be a door with me in 2014

There's this song, and in its profound simplicity -

it is my heart. 

My heart for 2014.


There's a line in it that brings tears to my eyes every time.

"…God put a million, million doors in the world
For His love to walk through
One of those doors is you…"

His love is alive in this world, right now, through us. 
I want to represent Jesus well this new year.

On Christmas Eve I was singing one of my all time favorite Christmas Carols. I felt so moved, almost in grief, as I sang these words,


"Truly He taught us to love one another, 
His law is love and His gospel is peace. "


Because, really? I don't think we have that love one another thing down any better than we understand His gospel of peace. 

And I can't change the world but this year, in 2014, I'm going to be that door. 

One of the million million.

May His love flow through us easily this year, friends.


And oh, if you think that you are too

young/old/uneducated/
simple/fearful/inadequate
busy/unequipped/poor

to be one of the doors that His love can walk through -

well, I've been there done that (yes to all of them).

And His incarnation, death, and resurrection changed that game. It's a complete game changer, so erase all of the labels you put next to your name and just write "door".

One of the million million.

Let's do this.
