Good morning ladies-
I just wanted to write today about a topic that I find often falls off and isn't broadcast as loud as it should be. The word is love. Love is never failing and yet, when we think of love, we think of it as a feeling. It so isn't a feeling. It's a commitment, a covenant of the most magnificent kind. It heals like no other medicine, pulls people together and reminds all of us that we are very special. Feelings change with circumstances, arguments, and just life. Love remains constant and is not a term to take lightly.
If our God loved us today the way we loved, then what would happen? Have you thought about it? You know how your feelings are. They go up and down with the sun sometimes. Well, that is not a God love. A God love given by the father is a commitment. He loves us. He lets us wander, He leads us by still waters, He heals hurts no psychologist could. He is love. So what is love? Love is what 2 Corinthians states it is. It's kind and patient and it never ends. A love that never ends. Many don't know what this means because today love is fleeting and often very unkind. What seemed like the best guy with all the right stuff turned into a man with inner darkness and yet, God still loves Him too. Why? That's a good question and it's the first I'm going to ask Him when I get a chance.
Looking for a man to fulfill that hole in your heart won't work. They can't. They can be our partners but that hole is where the Lord wants to be in your life. He wants you to remember that He is love and although this world is very cold, He is the light. No matter what you've done or think you've done, God holds all the keys to the heart and when you ask Him in, He unlocks that hole and fills it up until its overflowing. It was planned before you were born. You were born with a purpose and He wants to show you how much he cared by showing you what love really is.
You may be in a place right now where you are seeking this magnificent thing called love. Seek Him first and ask Him to show you the way to love again, not like before, but with a renewed spirit of commitment. Consistency is the key. You will have to read a lot to see what God intended love to be. It's a relationship and it's stronger than any feeling we have ever felt. Be patient, pray and read His word and you will see how much He loves us, forgives us and lifts us to Him.
Seek Him first and He will show you the way. He has for me. It's a journey that takes commitment on my part too. I have to remind myself daily that He is love and that I have been chosen for such a time as this. Be well my sisters and please pray for the women in the Middle East that have lost so much and who need Him desperately. The wars in Syria and Iraq are real. Remember that.
I am nothing without His love.
2 Corinthians 13:11 NIV
11Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.
