Each day is just the beginning of something greater!
We can hear great speakers, teachers, preachers and leaders on TV or in person. Some of us go to a Church on Sunday and hear a message of hope. We connect with others lives for reasons and a purpose far greater than we might realize. In all seasons of life, we need each other. Time of change and times that stay the same.
1 Peter 4:10-11 New International Version
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Each morning I am excited to sit down with a cup of tea and write you. I open my front door and listen for the birds to sing. I don't always hear the birds but I totally love the freshness of a new morning. Even in the season of rain, I love hearing the rain. I know that one gift God has given me, is writing you on a daily bases. I am faithful over writing and caring with a big heart. I have moments of life just like anyone else that are hard, but I feel God in the middle of my heart.
1 Corinthians 13 New International Version (NIV)
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
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.
I was 19 years old when I first heard about the love Chapter ~ 1 Corinthians 13. I didn't understand life or the words on a page of the Bible. I would hear teachers and try hard to understand about love. I always wanted love in my life. One of my hearts desire was to teach others to be kind and live it. I find it a little hard to help someone else see themselves the way God does. Each of us have gifts God gave us and we must keep pressing forward in sharing them. I know amazing people who allow God to use their lives totally and others who struggle against the plan of God.
We are each different but each have a purpose. My prayers are with you today (reader of my blog) and also for your family/friends. I value your time in reading this and planting hope into a new day. You are important and never forget that. Your example goes further than you will ever know. If you are waiting on a prayer to be answer, keep holding on and I'll keep praying too!
