“Everyday you live, you step into your future. Everyday you love, you invest into YOUR future.”
“Love begins with faith…ends with trust.”
“More than a feeling, love is a choice.”
“Love is the wealth of Heaven.”
“God is Love”
Don’t be fooled, love is not mocked! Love never fails…it’s people that fail to love. I believe that people are as ignorant to love as they are of God. God is Love. The same way it requires faith to know God, it requires faith to love. Faith is the building block of love. Within us all is the capacity to love and be loved. We all love to love because that is the essence of who we are. God is Love. We were created in His image and likeness. When we live outside of our identity in love, we become something we weren’t created for. Hatred, jealousy, bitterness, unforgiveness. These are attributes Christ taught us to let go of because we were not designed to live with these attitudes. You can never live a full and free life without love flowing freely in your life.
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32
Love is the indication of freedom. Where there are limitations to love, you’ve identified places you are bound. As God loves us unconditionally, that is the level of grace and freedom we are to give to the world around us. Freedom from Heaven‘s point of view is the ability to love someone even when they don’t deserve it.
I know, I know…you’ve loved and have been hurt before…really badly. But is that good reason to keep YOURSELF bound, unhappy and hidden behind the walls of your pain? NO! We have to grow beyond offenses and learn to deal with them healthily. Jesus even taught us that it’s impossible to not be hurt or offended in this life. (See Luke 17:1-5)
LOVE is spelled R-I-S-K. When you are afraid to love, you are in bondage to something. Fear imprisons us. Fear and security are not on the same team. Fear is a false security. When you look to feel safe through fear, you put up walls. The good thing about walls is that it keeps the bad things out. The bad part is that it keeps the good things out. All you will see in fear are threats and potential threats. Even if the perfect one comes your way, the answer to your prayers arrive…Fear sees everything as an attack and not an act of love. You see beloved, you have to see from Heaven’s perspective of love. The Jesus Mind allows you to see that all things are working together for your good. Love never fails. Even if that relationship failed, you’ve walked away with wisdom, experience and a lesson learned. You can never fail in love. You always walk away with a win! When you abide in love, you remain powerful and free. Love is the indication of spiritual maturity! Immaturity…is hiding from love. Grow up in love. It’s your destiny.
