Switchfoot have this great new album, Interrobang and on there is a song called, Beloved.
Here are some lyrics:

Oh, if only I could open up my eyes / Would the truth be what would set me free?
If only I could open up my eyes / Would I see that maybe I need You / Like You need me?

It’s weird to think that God needs us.

But I rather see it as, God longs for us. He longs for us to not do life alone and without Him.
Maybe we need to open our eyes and return to that truth. You are His beloved.

1 John 4:10 (



All You Need is Love

Today’s soundtack is a golden oldie by The Beatles called “All You Need is Love”. This song speaks about the fact that through everything and anything, all you need is love, to get through the good and the bad in life.

This reminds me so much of 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 ( It especially reminds me of verse 13 that says, “…the greatest of these is love”.

For the rest of the week I hope you remember love is powerful, it brings change, and that anything you encounter can be won over with the One who is love, Jesus Christ.



Love is a verb.

Read John 13:35 (

Could people look at us and see that we are Christians?
How can your life be about loving others?
Love is not just a noun. It’s an action word.Loving others could mean putting others before yourself.

On a daily basis, there are so many people we can love better. Our parents, our siblings, our friends, others at school (even the bullies!), our teachers, our neighbours. Imagine it was spoken of you and i: “That (insert your name) really loves people. You can see it in how they live their life.”

What a good challenge, a good way to live!
Start today.



My heart belongs to You

Who really has your heart?
Like the one person who practically lives in there?

As people we have a need to love and to belong to someone special. Lady Zamar, in her song Collide, says her lover is ‘a citizen, a resident in my heart’. It’s a really cool song, I love dancing to it!

But one day I stopped to think a little. Can another person really fill our deepest need to be loved? No. Only God can. Other people will disappoint us from time to time. God, who is love, laid down His life for us. Now, that is love that we can depend on.
