Loved With An Everlasting Love

I have loved you with an everlasting love

I have loved you with an everlasting love.—Jeremiah 31:3

Do you ever doubt God’s love for you?
While reading this verse my eye was drawn to the word “everlasting.” Everlasting means enduring through all time, or eternal. God loves His children with this kind of love. That means there is absolutely nothing we can do to stop His love. When we are faithless, He remains faithful. When the world turns its back on us, He draws even closer to us. When we fall, He picks us up.  Continue reading “Loved With An Everlasting Love”

When I Am Afraid

The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?

What do you do when you’re afraid?

When I was a child, if I was ever afraid at night, I would turn on the light. This went on for years . . .
Imagine a fearful child laying in bed and saying, “Mommy, please turn on the light, I’m scared.” The mother gives her child a warm hug and walks to the light switch to turn it on. Then one day, Jesus stepped in and said,
“Dear Child, I am your light! Why should you be afraid?”

The Way of Love [and 10 Inspirational Quotes about God’s Love]

Faith, Hope, Love

“Now these three things remain—faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love!”— 1 Corinthians 13:13

The word “love” is often used and misunderstood along the journey of life … and countless hearts are broken along the way as a result.  Yet this doesn’t have to be the case. God’s Word has clearly shown us the way regarding love.

I love the Message translation of 1 Corinthians 13. May God’s Word shine light on your path as you seek to love family, friends, and all who cross your path ❤️

1 Corinthians 13 The Message (MSG)

The Way of Love

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.
