Ordinary Love

Posted on Updated on

I’m here at Morningstar Ministries and am blown away from so much vision and anointing. I am being immensely blessed. I want to share a small portion from the conference with you today. Julie Joyner spoke on being uniquely created and designed by God. She also spoke about ordinary love and how important it is to love one another and honor each other and each other’s uniqueness.

I am going to start a series on here about identity but for now I want to say we must embrace who we are. Who God create us to be and walk in it. God created us to be in His image,yet we each of us is unique. Like sand, at first glance we all look similar.

But with a closer look, we truly see our uniqueness.

Each of us are unique. God created us that way. We can only be who we are. We need to embrace our uniqueness and love one another. We must love with the love, that Jesus has loved us with. We should wear Gods love.

We should at least have ordinary love for one another. Even when no one is looking. Do we still have ordinary love? Who are we when no ones looking? How do we treat that grocery clerk, the waitress or the maid who just cleaned our room?

If we don’t love one another what else matters?

Julie said she found the lyrics to Bono’s song Ordinary Love inspiring and so do I, so I want to leave you with these lyrics and video from Bono. Really think about them and let them sink in.

The sea wants to kiss the golden shore
The sunlight warms your skin
All the beauty that’s been lost before
Wants to find us again

I can’t fight you anymore
It’s you I’m fighting for
The sea throws rocks together
But time leaves us polished stones

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

Birds fly high in the summer sky
And rest on the breeze
The same wind will take care of you and I
We’ll build our house in the trees

Your heart is on my sleeve
Did you put it there with a magic marker?
For years I would believe
That the world couldn’t wash it away

‘Cause we can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

Are we tough enough
For ordinary love

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love

We can’t fall any further
If we can’t feel ordinary love
And we cannot reach any higher
If we can’t deal with ordinary love
