While corruption in our nation on every level is being exposed, I have to meet the wave of offense with His sea of forgiveness.
When I am involved in being offended, I cannot be engaged in loving my Lord. Could all these offenses have a more sinister aim afoot.
If there’s any hunger in my mortal frame, it's because God is allowing His desire and passion to reverberate like an echo within my frame.
I always had a narrow view of sharing in the sufferings of Christ. Today I’m seeing an expansion in the suffering His Love endures.
The Love of God is intended to stir up the atmosphere. When the presence of God's love is in the air, it's like throwing chum in shark-infested waters.
Once you’ve seen Love and been captured to love, it is in you. You cannot do otherwise…because the love of God compels you to sacrifice to love
God's love can be found in the unlikeliest places, even a simple mailbox. And seeing that love reveals the Heart behind it!
I believe that it is much easier to love (or hate!) a stranger than it is to love your neighbor, someone you actually know.
You cannot love anyone unless you love your self. Love must enfold your every relationship, including your enemies.
Rightly loving your Self, as obedience to God’s second command, is something entirely different than self-worship. To love and respect your self honors God!
This world’s cold love stems from a failure to love God and self. Our cold love is the byproduct of our lack of love for God and self.
I have learned that I can’t close off my heart to the world in self-protection and not also close it off to God, who created that world. That's cold love!
