God IS Love. 

 

My life is, and always has been based in and on love. I do not know how or why, and I certainly did not make a concerted effort to ‘be’ in love with life.. in fact I can say openly that I made a concerted effort NOT to be in love with life as a teenager and young adult. I was a great actress however, so very few people really knew what was going on inside at that time. But this overwhelming sense of love would always manage to rationalise my mind in my deepest despair (yes love can be rational). I had no idea at the time where that love came from as I was wholly intent on that decision I had made- that I was repulsive and completely unlovable. Now I know where it came from. Thank you Jesus.

Love – really does give you the answer to all things. Love is the strongest emotional state you can put yourself in because God IS love, therefore you are ‘being’ in the state we were created in. In Love.

The smallest candle outshines the darkest of black. Even a pin prick of light outshines the deepest despair. What is Light if it is not hope, if it is not Love? I, like you, have lived through some dark times; have put myself in some dark situations; and occasionally found myself surrounded by darkness in what many would call out of my control.    Can you relate?

What gets me out of these predicaments? It is not my incessant whining and complaining. I have found the more I give in to the situation, the more I complain, worry, cry myself to sleep feeling sorry for myself and talk about it in a negative sensethe more I feed the darkness.

I can pull myself out using my own effort and then with the help and encouragement from others- this gets tiring quickly and only works on the surface. But when I give my burdens to Jesus... they are taken from me and I walk in His love and can then tirelessly give His love. This is easy, yet not so ‘popular’ in society today. Its quite unpopular to be a Christian these days- in fact- its cooler to anything else. Clearly, I don’t run with the pack,  nor care what is popular. There are already far too many fashion victims out there, broken and confused.  I am not going to add to that pile. Obviously, I am a Christian, and love every minute of it. :)

god says

By finding the Light; finding that pinprick of hope, that pinprick of love in my heart and focusing in on that; by listening to the still quiet loving voice within, I am given the answers and I am given hope. This is a huge difference to ‘searching’ for answers and hope. Step by step, my love will grow and step by step the stronger I become. You see ‘The Joy of the Lord is my Strength” Neh 8-10 and as God IS Love, the more I choose to walk in Love the more strength I gain In Him.

Love is strength. Love is power. Love is NOT weak as marketed to us by the world. We will NOT come out on top by being crafty, lying, and cheating our way to the where we want to be. That is a dirty life, the way of the world. Do not think getting there fastest means you stay there for long. There is a price to pay, and often more costly that we could EVER imagine.  Love is honour and respect.  

  • What is Love in the year of 2013?

  • Is there even such a thing as Love?

  • Has it died a quick death along with our demand for a ‘here and now’ lifestyle?

For some perhaps – but for me is it as real as it was when it was created:

What is Love?

Love suffers long and is kind: love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

does not behave rudely, does not seek it’s own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love NEVER fails!!

1 Cor 13: 3-8

Yes there is a thing such as Love and it Lives in your heart. Every single one of us has the capacity to love. No matter what.

It is up to you as to what you feed your Spirit- be it the White Wolf or be it the Black Wolf- you will feed one or the other. It will show in your actions, the words you speak and how you conduct yourself in this world of our today. It will show in your face- the eyes are the windows to your soul.

You were made to shine bright. Each and every one of you. You are here for a reason. You are an important piece to this jigsaw puzzle of life. You have a particular place designed just for you. There you will shine bright and grow. Walk in Love. Walk in Lovingkindness. Laugh at your troubles and give them to God, Christ Jesus’ Father- your Father if you so choose. He will give you the answers you ask for- then you take the action needed.

When life gives you lemons- you make natural, wholesome fresh lemonade. Don’t make a margarita! You choose – live life with the stealth of a leopard, the power of a Lion and the heart filled with love as if it has never been broken.

A little love goes a long way- so imagine what a LOT of love does! Don’t look at the negative. Focus in on the positive. Give it your all, in all situations.

“Without love, I am nothing; I have become sounding brass or a clanging symbol” 1 Cor 13-1

I hear a lot of noise out there in the world today- unplug from that and plug into the love in your heart and BE the change you want to see in your world.
