I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

~Ephesians 3:16-19

I’m coming for your heart.

And you should realize, especially after having watched me this past month, I have come to win.

You should realize, but I’m not a particularly impressive person to look at, and you don’t seem to know anything about the power behind me. So you’ll probably underestimate me. Again.

I don’t know why it’s so important to me that you know love. Really. I don’t know why I care. After everything you put me through, I really shouldn’t.

But I do. And I’m sensitive enough to know that when something is important to me, I need to go for it. So I am. Going for it, that is.

You’ve been so in control of what happens in your heart for so long – you haven’t felt much, you haven’t cared much, and what you have felt and cared about, you haven’t expressed – like your heart is something you get to turn on and off at will. Like nobody else needs or wants your heart.

Maybe that’s why I care. Because I’ve operated there, too.

Doesn’t matter. You’re not going to be able to control your heart that way anymore.

Because I’m coming for it, with every ounce of power I possess. (That’s considerable power, if you were wondering.)

And I’ve come to win.
