Real Love

Saturday, June 26, 2010

Love never gives up.
I am thankful for God's faithfulness to me in every situation, even when I fall short.
Love cares more for others than for self.

I realize how selfish I am and how much I can work on putting others first.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
I am beyond blessed and have so much to be thankful for.
Love doesn't strut

Every gift that I have is given from above.
Doesn't have a swelled head
All the glory belongs to him.
Doesn't force itself on others
Gentleness is one of my favorite attributes of God and something I strive to have and be.
Isn't always "me first"
Less of me and more of you.
Doesn't fly off the handle
I never want my temper to get the best of me.
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others
God has granted me more grace than I ever deserve and I pray for this to be a part of who I am
Doesn't revel when others grovel
I want to be a part of the the right things in life, not the negative.
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth
The truth always sets you free.
Puts up with anything
Patience and Understanding is something I need more of.
Trusts God always
It's scary to let go and trust, but God will never leave me nor forsake me, he has never let me down.
Always looks for the best
I want to always see others as God does, and not looking for the worst, but the best.
Never looks back
I can only pray to learn to not look back but forward. My past has been erased because of his forgiveness. I am forever grateful.
But keeps going to the end
It's dependable, not conditional, and something I can trust. Regardless of anyone, or anything.

I have read this chapter in 1 Corinthians multiple times, but this week I was meditating trying to pray through some things in my own heart, and this verse was brought to mind. I opened my bible and was drawn to these high-lighted words in the Message translation. This writing is different than how I normally express my thoughts, but with each verse read, this is what was going through my head. I can only keep thinking how blessed I am that there is a God who loves me. Not because of what I've done, who I am, but just because he created me and he loves me. No strings attached. It doesn't change even though I have messed up a million times, it doesn't threaten to walk out, its constant.

I realize that I have a lot to work on & strive for when I really think about the biblical meaning and definition of love. I am blessed to be Loved by a Heavenly Father with this perfect love, and I hope in my life to demonstrate this love to others the best way I know how.

What can separate us from the Love of Christ?
Absolutely nothing.

For that I am forever grateful.
