Loving You MOST, Jesus {day 16} : Belonging

DSC00481“I don’t like those verses.”
“Why?”
“Because they’re impossible… They sound great. Sure it’d be great to be all those things. But I can’t do any of them. I’ve tried. So, when I hear them or read them, I just feel bad about myself.”

A mom’s bold honesty.
Quickly, 3 others chimed in, exhaling relief – and the burden of SELF expectation.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13.4-8a)

God is love…
God is this love.
He pours this love into us.

To love us.
And for us to pour into others.

DSC00486We love our children deeply.
We want to be patient and kind, never lose our temper, never bring up past offenses or say ‘I told you so’. We try to trust, hope, persevere, and never fail them.

Known by God, we belong to Perfect Love …
Do you live like you belong to Him?

Loving Jesus MOST, we focus on His love. His love fills, heals, and builds us to BECOME reflections of his character. What seems so unattainable, so impossible, He brings near.
