on a crucifixion type love…

I thought this would be the perfect way to end of November. Click here to view on YouTube…

My biggest prayer is to love her right

I want to…

Love her like Christ loved the church

Love her like her Father in Heaven loves Her

Love her like the Holy Spirit loves her soul

And love her like she was created to be loved

But sometimes….

Sometimes my flesh tries to intimidate me with that kind of love

It’s like my spirit cries out from the depths of this corrupted prison

With the voice of Abel screaming that

I have not yet loved her to the extent Christ loves the church

I want a crucifixion type love

Everytime I hug her I want my arms to be spread out on the cross

And I want to die to my childish ways

Everytime I look into her eyes

I want a crown of thorns to be placed upon my head and surrender my thought life to her honor

To be nails driven into my feet so that they will lead her with the authority of Moses

I want a crucifixion type love

I want my side to be pierced every time we laugh together

so that I’ll always remember that she is my rib

Everytime I sleep and dream of her

I want my back to be beaten with a catonine tails

so that I’ll always carry her burdens for her

Everytime I’m not with her

I want to stand before Pilate and stand true to my relationship with her

se,  I want those who have seen me to have seen her in ME when we are apart

I want a crucifixion type love

I want a love that will cause dead men to rise

When people gaze on us, I want them to know who is this Christ that we speak of?

And everytime she falls I want to take her in my arms like my cross and carry her up to Calvary

I want men to mock me for not wanting to be like them

For not wanting to squander my love on various women

But to have the passion to pour out my love onto one soul for all of eternity

I want a crucifixion type love

I want a love that was predestined before eternity

I want a love that was birthed in my mother’s womb

I want a love that is willing to give up this world for her

I want a love that is immaculate

I want a love that makes angel’s wish they were in our shoes

I want a love that will make me pray to God and say

Who am I that YOU are mindful of me to bless me with her

I want a crucifixion type love

I want a love that bleeds purity

I want a love that people will lie on us just to see us split apart

I want a love that will make me run away to a far village,

build a mansion for you with my bare hands

and send you love letters every day reminding you of me

letters that you can keep in a book and spend time reading them every day

I want a love that will make my spirit pray for you

I want a love that will make me walk on water in the middle of the most dangerous storm for you

I want a crucifixion type love

I want a love that my friends will betray me because of my affection for you

I want a love that after we’re gone,

that for centuries to come men will aim to follow in our legacy

Everytime I rise in the morning

I want it to be my cross being raised upright for you

To stand on the hill of my life and portray a beautiful sacrifice

I want to be placed in the tomb of your heart

The Tomb that your mother and father built

I want a love that will rise with all power over adversity

I want a love that people will flock to see if it is real

I want a crucifixion type love

I want a love that shows my yearning for you

I want a love that even when we argue,

I still have a burning passion & desire to be with you

I want a love that heals

The kind of love that covers the wounds that were dug deep by the knives of infidelity and insecurity

I want a love that makes God get up and dance around his throne every time he sets his eyes on us

I want a crucifixion type love

So with all of that said

Lord, give me the strength to love her like you love me

Like the way you didn’t consider being equal with the Father a thing to be grasped

But you came and gave up your throne for the filth of this world

And in love, you served

So, In the same way

Let me serve her unconditionally infinitely

Let me MAN UP

And quit wasting time playing games

and pursue her like you pursue your church

Because you have chosen me to be entrusted with her heart

So let me cherish it like a jeweler cherishes a diamond

Let me examine it and find out every minute detail about her worth

I want to love her

like Abraham loved Sarah

Like Isaac loved Rebecca

Like Jacob loved Rachel

Like Boaz loved Ruth

Like Solomon loved his Queen

I want a crucifixion type love

So into your hands I commit this relationship

Because I want to love her like you Love your church

I WANT a Crucifixion…type…love…
