Beloved Fellow Travelers of the blogosphere, come and eat. I think every human being on the planet is hungry for Love. Deep down inside we all want to be known and loved. We all carry around scars and unhealed wounds. I believe that is one of the hallmarks of being a person. Here at Disarmed by Love, I want to share the power of that Love and hear from those of you who have experienced its life-giving force.
I’m passionate about life and I have a great desire to be known and loved. The problem is I’ve believed the lie that I couldn’t have both. And Love is still doing its best to seep through the deception and bring about the truth, that indeed one can be known and loved. It will take a lifetime of coming to believe that hatred, apathy, and resentment can all be disarmed by Love and that Love can rescue a soul from despair. Most of my life, I have lived with people. It is not an easy undertaking but when Love rules home can be a place of peace, joy, and comfort.
I want this blog to be a place where you can find some ingredients for your own Love Feast. Love only happens when it is shared. It does not happen in isolation. To be alone with an unseen Loving God can be a rest, a refuge, a place to be refreshed. But the assurance of that Love comes through people who we can see, who can touch us, feed us, and in turn we can do the same for them. Love is most often found in the stream of Life in the midst of relationship.
