Brr. The temp dropped last night. Hope our creek friends are cozy! Anyway …
“If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up.” 1 Corinthians 13:3-5
“But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 MSG
“There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”
Philippians 1:6 MSG
Good morn, LovedOne,
Once you taste love, you taste a certain whirling power. Something beyond reason kicks in and like the “I think I can” Little Engine That Could, a new anthem sets in … “whatever it takes, whatever it takes, whatever it takes, …”. However long it takes.
An unexpected blast of bitter cold may send you running for cover. You will take a few hits on your journey. They may even come hit after hit. That’s just an assessment point … how much do you burn for what you love? Your strength comes from the Spirit of the Holy – when you’re doubled over catching your breath, He becomes your new lungs.
Will you hold back, take cover, put up walls of protection? Or, even if you can’t imagine how it will work out, will you let yourself want this with all your heart?
You can trust Him here. If He planted love in this, He will complete it.
