You're required to love God and love yourself whether or not another single soul loves you. You have only one self and you’re required to love that self.
When is Love Real and When is Love for Self? Everything plays into our deep desire for true love. So when is it real love and when is it just about self?
To receive love we have to be vulnerable to Love. To receive love from God we have to come open handed and not sullied by thinking we know anything.
Love will force out and bring to the surface all that is not Love. Love is so holy that it finds all that is unholy and exposes it to make way for Love’s procession.
A lover isn't motivated primarily by self-satisfaction but by relationship. A lover is focused on the one they love.
Love is actually the most powerful force that can be wielded in this life. Love is an offensive assault on all that isn’t love.
True love is only experienced by casting yourself upon the mercies of God and allowing Him to uphold and keep you. God is the only way we can live in Love’s integrity.
His goal for my prayer life is connection with Him who is my Answer, not the answer in itself. Prayers don't equate His obligation to answer.
As a believer, I'm not given the opportunity to live without being open-hearted. I must walk with my heart fully exposed to Him & to those He died for.
Our world is steeped in the pursuit of romance. We long for it desperately. We want romance because we were made in the image of a romantic God.
To open-handedly receive what God supplies and not resenting Him for what He doesn’t, we will dwell in God’s goodness as a reality.
It is only Christ's Life that has the power to live with open arms and exposed heart to the Father in chaos and crisis. He wants to do this in all of us!
