Perfect love?

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
Wow. Harsh reality.  We are very much in love,  but immediately we know that it is imperfectly.  We’ve been through love. .. we’ve been through incredible loss.  We FEAR. We are not God. He loves perfectly and try as we may, we do not. God shows us His immeasurable love for us and wants us to spill that love over into other people. It’s better to be loved imperfectly than to never have been loved at all.  

Love Your Enemies “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,  that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.  If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?  And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?”
In the best and worst of moments you can look to His word and find these nuggets of truth.  God is not asking us to go into our daily chaos alone.  He gives us a life manual to follow and even WANTS a personal relationship with us.  How crazy is that?! The omnipotent God of this universe wants to be our friend, walk with and guide us through the muck of this sinful world. We don’t always love what he tells us…love your enemies???Pray for those who persecute you???  I promise you can do this with HIS help.  He will free you from the prison walls that others and you have built, that hold you back. #HIS

Finding Wisdom

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. ”
There are so many times in life when you just don’t know the right thing to do. There are difficult decisions to be made…Pray to the God of infinite wisdom to show you His ways and be blessed with his knowledge and peace in decisions big and small. He will give you insight.
