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.
WORKING ON ME ~
Love is described in many ways in life. We look for love and want it in our lives. But let us take a look inside of the word love. In the Bible, God speaks of love being patient, kind, it does not boast. It continues on listing things in the verse above. Love is a factor of life that doesn't go away. We were meant to be here on earth to spread the love of God daily. Once we feel the love of God, we grow daily in change. Life doesn't become all about you (me) anymore, but others.
I sometimes get the wrong attitude and find myself working on me. I go back to the scripture above and find what love really means. Other do let me down and I do expect too much at times. I think that people should know what goes on inside my head and that's impossible. Only God knows our thoughts and our desires of a heart. His power is real, but we must be real too. Looking deep inside to see what is best for our own lives.
Daily, I do work on me. I want to understands so much and I just don't at times. I want to help more people but find my dollars lacking in doing that. I do my best to spread the love of God to others and help when I can. I share my time by writing this blog and sharing hope of a new day. Good deeds are daily done by people. I saw my son give a girl money because she lost her money and wasn't able to buy an ice tea. As he began to talk to her, she said, "oh I can not except that". My son said, "it is called a blessing". She said, "I will pay it forward". That was a nice thought and kindness does matter in this life.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. That's means in love and caring for each other. Looking beyond to see what is greater than a want. An act of kindness and love is important. My prayer continue for you, your family and friends. I know that some of you feel very loved today and others not so loved at all. God's love remains the same for each of us and he wants you to know that you are loved beyond words.
Take some time out today for you and give yourself some corrected for all the good things you do in life. So many times are lives are full of loving others and helping, we forget to love ourselves. You are important and remember that.
