If I could cradle you into my arms
I would cradle you tight in my arms - always
So don't be scared of all the hurtful words
Cause in the end they'll hurt themselves much more

You are my joy - you are my joy
You are my joy - you are my joy
You are my joy - you are my joy
You are my joy - you are my joy

"So that these actions will become natural, spontaneous, without being diluted by thought, right? Compassion is the same way," said Joshua. "That's what {he} knew. He loved constantly, instantly, spontaneously, without thought or words. That's what he taught me. Love is not something you think about, it is a state in which you dwell. That was his gift. Who took care of him? Fed him? Looked after him? Did you have to think about that before you did it?"

--Joshua, Son of God and Messiah.

radical

We will evaluate where true security and safety are found in this world, and in the end we will determine not to waste out lives on anything but uncompromising, unconditional abandonment to a gracious, loving Savior who invites us to take radical risk and promises us radical reward.

But I found myself becoming uneasy. For one thing, my model in ministry is a guy who spent the majority of his ministry time with twelve men...So how was I to reconcile the fact that I was now pastoring thousands of people?

Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.
