Unlock & Unleash


Unlock and Unleash

spotted spirit
blinded beauty
unseen sight
hidden heart
locked love
ignored intelligence
unknown knowledge
sweet surrender
beauty unleashed
healed hearts
redeemed thoughts

Sometimes the best things aren't on the surface, sometimes you have to look through the facade and past the blinking gaze; past the hurt and ache. That is when you see the inside, the radiant glowing inside, just waiting to get out. Love dying to be shared- held in check by fear. Unlock and unleash others with your love... you'll never regret it.

I know sometimes I am holding onto my heart so tightly that I become a “Love Scrooge.” We are so often told to guard our hearts and while that is important, sometimes we get carried away and build walls and suffocate our hearts in the process. If we give our hearts to God’s care he will protect them while allowing them to breathe and give life to us and others. If you are truly following the example of Christ then you will pour love out of yourself and onto others. Elie Wiesel once said “The opposite of love is not hate. The opposite of love is indifference.” It is when we wall our hearts away that we become indifferent. Indifferent to hurting people: people who need us to be Christ. When we love others with pure love, Christ's love, we unlock them: freeing them to love and live. Don't be afraid to love others! Don't lock your heart away! Love is what gives life… give the gift of life to someone today!

“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.” 1 Peter 1:22 (NIV, emphasis mine)
