As I grew older, I realize that not everyone knows Jesus or even hears of his story as a kid. It is later in life when I would hear the question, "who is Jesus"? Questions like who is watching over me and what is love anyway? A God who cares and shows us daily in little things of life would be my answer. Purpose to think about new thoughts about God and learn of his way.
1 Corinthians 13:4-13 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
GOD HEARS YOU ~
Never stop praying and believing in miracles.
One day God turned my thinking around and began a process of change inside of me. I wanted to know more about God and his power. I wanted to see a miracle and I've seen many. I wanted to share his love with others and I continue to do that. No, not everything turns out the way we want or even think at times, but God has a plan. I've learned to trust that plan and do my best daily to conquer my own thoughts and turn to his thoughts.
It might sound crazy to some people, but leaning to God is the best plan ever. After all, he created us unique and different for a reason. Each one brings his or her's own purpose into a new day. Even strangers can tell you are different by your acts of kindness. God's love shine through you if you let it. Purpose this a good day and let it begin now.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
