Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

L is for…

Someone remembers, someone cares; your name is whispered in someone’s prayers. Keep bright hope of the future in view; someone lovingly is thinking of you.
~ Unknown Author ~

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

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 its 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 Corinthians 13:3-8 ~ (NKJV)

Hello friends. (smile) Love and longsuffering are spiritual fruit. Everyone wants to be loved and accepted. Everyone. The ability to receive love starts from within.

To experience love, from within, requires a spiritual connection, to God, through His Son, Jesus and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, as well as, choosing to let stuff go.

To know the depth of God’s love is to understand His pruning process will fill any emptiness within resulting in emotional wholeness that is transparent.  

Emotional wholeness is a loving heart that is open and complete. We can love whether others love us back! Praise The Lord.

It’s a powerful life style to love without conditions as illustrated in 1 Corinthians 13.

Twelve years ago, I fell in love with the New King James Version of 1 Corinthians 13.

It’s beautifully worded and provides a deep understanding of love without conditions. (smile)

This love has no fear.
This love gives life.
This love blesses and encourages.
This love forgives.
This love adapts.
This love nurtures.
This love lets go.
This love never fails.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and appreciate those who love us.

Enjoy your day and the rest of the M to Z challenge! (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts.
