Can feelings turn into that thing we call love?

I haven’t blogged in a while, but perhaps the coffee is just a little stronger to be inspired to jot something down. Yesterday, while browsing through the feed on Facebook, I came across this quote that has been haunting me since I found it:

“To think you can love God without being changed by Him, is to think you can jump into the ocean and not get wet. To really love Him, you must understand that your life is going to be wrecked by Him, and built again into something beautiful, something lasting.” ~T.B LaBerge

In every chapter in life, God places people at the middle of your life for a reason. I’ve learned in this chapter so far, how beautiful it truly is. People who affirm, people challenge, people who teach you to be more understanding of every prodigal child that come through our doors and then you have the people …. who ….  totally turn your life upside down … knowing God is working in the middle of all of it, fashioning our fragile lives into something remarkably beautiful, into something worthy of praise, no matter how different our lives may be.

Maybe that’s why pictures are amazing. I started this little map journal inspired by my baby sister, in a little corner of my office, as a way of constantly reflecting on where God has led me. It’s far from being complete, but it’s off to a good start. More pictures still to come.
