“Therefore, so that I would not exalt myself, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to torment me so that I would not exalt myself. Concerning this, I pleaded with the Lord three times to take it away from me. But he said to me…My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness. Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me. So, I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions and in pressures; because of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 12: 7-10)
Due to the judgmental world, we all have become masters at hiding our weaknesses from our friends and families in order to avoid being judged by others for not being what they may have expected. The funny thing is when we confess our weaknesses to the Father who truly loves us and even to others, then HIS LOVE gives us HIS AMAZING STRENGTH to do anything. So, no matter what you are facing, remember that his STRENGTH is sufficient enough to get you through anything.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
We have been blessed with a kind of undying love that never, ever gives up! This lost sheep is so grateful for that. I know that it has been a while since my last post, but along with being busy I have also been feeling a little lost and wondering if I am the person that God wants to use to share his loving messages?
This morning, I was reminded of how much he loves me and wants to use me to spread HIS LOVE to others. So, I am back to remind each of you to love one another because this love changes everything!
We all spend a lot of time trash talking others for their faults and I am as guilty of this as anybody. What I have begun to notice lately though is that things are so much more peaceful and the whole world seems to be a happier place when we show our love towards one another. So, today I encourage you to show your love to another in need. Like the Beatles said…”All You Need is Love”.
