I am an encourager. It is one of my spiritual giftings and I love to use it. Today, I want to encourage you. Last night, I was catching up on my 365 day Bible and I read these words:
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4: 9-12, NIV
I want to love. I want God to live in me. And oh, I want to be complete. Sometimes I lose sight of the greatness of God's love for me. I get bogged down in guilt. I start weighing things on the proverbial scale and just feel that things are not measuring out quite right. The things that are wrong cloud my vision so much so that I cannot see the millions of things that are going right. I get so internal and so self-absorbed that I forget God loves me. When I am remiss in absorbing this love, I am then remiss in loving. And when I am remiss in loving, I am not complete.
So today, I want to remind you of God's love for you. His love is free. His love is pure. His love transcends all sins, all faults, and all failures. It is yours to receive, fully and completely. Allow yourself to be loved today and then, pass it on.
Please spend 4 minutes reveling in His love for you.
Please, after you reveled, go visit these amazing ladies.
