HEART ~ inside one's heart, are many memories, wants and desires. Some of us have been broken very bad and the wonder of breathing again is hard to think about in life. There is a chapter in the Bible that speaks of love. Love can be a complicated thing, but also a great thing. A quick change in one's life can make people either better or bitter. Read the love chapter:
1 Corinthians 13 New Life Version
Love—the Greatest of All
13 I may be able to speak the languages of men and even of angels, but if I do not have love, it will sound like noisy brass. 2 If I have the gift of speaking God’s Word and if I understand all secrets, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I know all things and if I have the gift of faith so I can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give everything I have to feed poor people and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, it will not help me.
4 Love does not give up. Love is kind. Love is not jealous. Love does not put itself up as being important. Love has no pride. 5 Love does not do the wrong thing. Love never thinks of itself. Love does not get angry. Love does not remember the suffering that comes from being hurt by someone. 6 Love is not happy with sin. Love is happy with the truth. 7 Love takes everything that comes without giving up. Love believes all things. Love hopes for all things. Love keeps on in all things.
8 Love never comes to an end. The gift of speaking God’s Word will come to an end. The gift of speaking in special sounds will be stopped. The gift of understanding will come to an end. 9 For we only know a part now, and we speak only a part. 10 When everything is perfect, then we will not need these gifts that are not perfect.
11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child. I thought like a child. I understood like a child. Now I am a man. I do not act like a child anymore. 12 Now that which we see is as if we were looking in a broken mirror. But then we will see everything. Now I know only a part. But then I will know everything in a perfect way. That is how God knows me right now. 13 And now we have these three: faith and hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.
LOVE ~ can be a hard work to understand. Especially when someone tells us they love us, but show different actions. Let us remember that true love is KIND. I felt to share the above scripture on a weekend where people sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Memorial Day is Monday and it is filled with memories for many people. As we continue to learn about love, let us pray for those who hurt on this weekend of reminders. It is not actually just one day, one weekend but a everyday process for many who missed family and friends. Loved one's who have gone way to soon from our lives. Families that are broken and trying to start a new normal. Lives that changed suddenly by one phone call or notice of their family member going to Heaven. Let us give thanks daily for these men and women who sacrificed the greatest thing in life, their lives.
ONE HEART ~ is filled with many memories and emotions on a day with a title. We give thanks, but also takes us back to a hard place of life sometimes. I would ask that you pray for people who hurt and count blessings of your freedom in America! My prayers continue for each one who reads this and your families/friends. My heart is thankful for our military and each of your lives as well. Purpose this a good day. Giving thanks to a God who continues to show us love and kindness daily.
