Read: Deuteronomy 6

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”
Deuteronomy 6:5 ESV

The song “Voice Memo (Heaven on Earth)” on Heaven is the closest to my heart — it’s a simple, broken-down moment of worship between four people and a piano.

We sing:

You are all around me
You have always seen me
You are my protector
With heart and with soul
With every breath you compose a symphony
What beautiful hope believes in me
I will always love you
Heaven on earth is life with you

Every person I know cried when they listened to it for the first time.

It feels so rare that we open ourselves up to express such deep truths about God and our relationship with Him so clearly and without asking for anything in return. The scriptures say that our first commandment as God’s people is simply to love Him. This song and these words strip away anything that could get in the middle of us doing just that.

To fall in love with Jesus and make your life into a conversation with Him is a beautiful, difficult, eternally rewarding journey. Engaging in moments of remembering all that God does and has done for us reinforces our foundation of faith and trust in Him and where’s He’s leading us.

Don’t miss these moments in your work day, your time of prayer, your car ride alone, or the three minutes you decide to listen to a worship song – be vulnerable with God. Open up your heart and your fears, your anxieties, your gratitude to Him. Free yourself to love Him with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength and you’ll find a deeper freedom waiting for you.

Set aside five minutes today just to worship God and have a conversation with Him. Play “Voice Memo” and let yourself be vulnerable to be honest with Him about how you’re doing and how much He means to you. Talk with someone after about how the conversation went.

God, thank you for always being with me, protecting me, and seeing me for who you made me to be. Please show me new and better ways to love you and the people around me with all that I am. Amen.

We would like to thank Mosaic MSC for providing this plan.
