People often ask me about the name of my blog... click here to read the story.

Last week I stumbled upon the singer/songwriter JJ Heller. After listening to bits of a few songs, I downloaded the entire set. This morning one of the lines struck me:

Falling in love with you was easy
You were always meant to have my heart

The song is obviously about her relationship with God. I believe God did create us with a "God shaped vacuum" as Pascal (or someone-it's origin is debated) wrote. So I do believe He was meant to have my heart.

But is falling in love with God easy?

For the few who read this blog, I'd really like to hear what you have to say...don't be afraid...there's no right answer. And honestly, this strikes me this morning because, although I feel guilty and somehow wrong saying it, falling in love with God doesn't feel easy or even natural. So, tell me, what do you think? What's your story? I'd love for you to post it here, but if you're more comfortable emailing me, that's fine too.

Oooh ... Good question.

For me, the falling in love was the easy part.

But I've gone through periods where the staying in love was really hard. I'm a fickle follower, focusing too often on the gifts instead of the Giver.

Grateful for His grace, and His constant pursuit, even when I turn my back to His love.

Thanks for replying, Jennifer. Yeah, after I wrote it I realized the more apt question is not falling in love but loving over the long haul. And I also am thankful that His loving me has nothing to do with my loving Him...I'd be forever lost if that were the case. By the way, great seeing you a little last night. :)
