He Stole My Heart

July 23, 2012

in the generous life

I just finished reading Beautiful Outlaw (aff link) by John Eldredge. It totally wrecked me (in that lovely profound way that only God can pull off).

It’s subtitled “Experiencing the Playful, Disruptive, Extravagant Personality of Jesus” and it lives up to that. When you get done reading, you want to play in the sprinklers with Jesus (or any number of wonderful, playful, intimate activities). Jesus is so sweet and approachable. You can’t help but fall in love with Him all over again.

I would encourage y’all to read the book (check your local library or borrow it from a friend if funds are tight). It’s refreshing and life altering.

He is the playfulness of creation, scandal and utter goodness, the generosity of the ocean and the ferocity of a thunderstorm; he is cunning as a snake and gentle as a whisper; the gladness of sunshine and the humility of a thirty-mile walk by foot on a dirt road.  John Eldredge / Beautiful Outlaw
