The Language of the Heart

God, do you hear the language of my heart?

Beating away
rhythm to an intelligent pulse
sometimes fast, sometimes slow
sometimes loud, sometimes soft,
Whispering “I love you, I love you.”
“I live for you, I live for you.”

Words cannot express what it is saying,
it beats to a rhythm, to a purpose higher than its own.
It sings the songs of angels,
it tells of great wonders.

With every moment in time,
it weaves a tapestry of voices, of emotions
From deep within my soul and spirit,
reaching up and touching God’s heart.

It speaks of a language far away
a country often spoken of
a wondrous people,
a kingdom,
heaven.

The language of my heart…

The significance of the kiss

Have just been thinking recently about the significance of the kiss, and why movies end with a passionate kiss, as if it symbolised everything..

Wikipedia defines the kiss as such:
A kiss is the act of pressing one’s lips against the lips or other body parts of another. Cultural connotations of kissing vary widely. A kiss may be used to express sentiments of love, passion, affection, respect, greeting, friendship, and good luck, among many others.

Is there a deep human longing for something more? something intimate. what can we learn about movies that often end with a tremendous kiss infront of a sunset?

Some quotes to think about:
Soul meets soul on lovers’ lips. ~Percy Bysshe Shelley, Prometheus Unbound

A kiss seals two souls for a moment in time. ~Levende Waters

I think its the longing for intimacy, not just of a physical nature, but a spiritual nature as well.

I’ve come to think that the significance of the type of kisses at the end of the movie have been trivialised in the sense that kisses are just for anybody who comes along whom you happen to have an amazing chemistry with..kisses represent far more than an emotional high and a sudden feeling of love, let our kisses be in proportion to our true love and commitment to others..

Only God can offer us that true deep spiritual union which we seek. In the security of god’s love, let’s not kiss others parasitically, but kiss others lovingly, whether be it a romantic kiss, a friendship kiss, a family kiss, and so on.

Let’s be authentic in our kisses, let our kisses mean what we are committed to.

Sex is sacred

As christians, do we honestly believe that sex is sacred?

I can’t help but think that it is easy for us not to actually believe so. The moment we step out of our doors we are bombarded with images and words that sex is something you do with whoever whenever it feels right. not something solely exclusive to one person for the whole of your life, and does not have many strings attached.

If I am not wrong, I believe that sex is one of the most esteemed and  symbolic activities that God has granted human beings to engage in. Sex represents a union between the man and the woman. It also represents, in a much deeper sense, the union between the leader and the follower. Even more subtly so, it represents our union between God our King (the leader) and his people (the followers).This is because this theme of union has run through the bible mainly concerning the union between God and his people. The Church is described as the bride of Christ, while Jesus is the groom.

When i talk about union, I mean union of body, mind, spirit and soul. It is no wonder the bible says that  “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24. In other words they become one person..a single unit/entity. Of course God desires unity with us in that way as well =)

That is why sex carries much more meaning than a  pleasurable sensation accompanied by romantic rushes of hormones and thoughts. (In some cases, only a pleasurable sensation!!)

I actually think that God could have made sex ”a garden for pleasure” partly because it represents the essence of what we live for – our relationships with other personal beings, including God.

This suggests how much more joyous our union with God will be especially when we meet him face to face in heaven. Surely it will be exponentially more than the pleasures one gets from sex! 😀
