Love Tip: Love is a choice, but oftentimes when we don’t feel love, we stopping choosing to love. Love is something we do, even when it’s not something we feel!


Noteworthy: Like Jesus Does

I love how songs are able to express what can otherwise be so difficult to articulate. The carefully selected words mingle with melodies, and magic seems to happen. That which was once just a sentiment deep within suddenly is unlocked with the turn of a key, and like a dam broken, all of those unspokens come flowing forth in a beautiful release.

One such song made its debut in my life a few months back. My family and I had all rendezvoused in Virginia for my sister’s college graduation, and as we wound along the picturesque country roads, a song came on. At first I didn’t recognize it and nearly turned the station, but thankfully, my sister, Erin, stopped me. She and her husband said, “This is an amazing song! We love this song!” Considering my sister has been a musician most of her life with an excellent taste in music, I decided that I better listen a bit more carefully. So, I perked up and tuned in.

The song told of a love that was true. A love that was the real deal. A love that was inspirational and sure to stand the test of time.

The best part is that this particular song didn’t romanticize or water things down. It didn’t speak of lofty, head-in-the-clouds kind of love. It spoke of commitment … commitment that possessed true grit and determination. Love that emulated the supreme example. The example being that of Jesus’ love.

Country musician, Eric Church, hits the nail on the head when he sings of being loved by his lady like Jesus would. The lyrics are honest and raw. They pierce through the fluff and pleasantries, and paint a picture of sincere, Christ-like love that bridges all gaps, overcomes all evil, and cultivates thanksgiving in its “undeserving” recipient.

If there is one thing I would love to be said of my love for my husband, it would be that I love him like Jesus does. There is no higher compliment or achievement. That is the ultimate goal – to love our spouse like Jesus does!

This might be one of my favorite songs of all time simply because of its humble yet profound message. Every time I listen to it, I get chills. Really the only way for you to understand what I’m talking about is for you to hear it for yourself, so take a listen here, and tell me what you think …
