Good morning Lovelies. Father God, we are awed by Your grace, patience, and love. Give us the courage to face each new day with all its challenges. Remind us that you are greater than our perception of who you are, and in all things, you prevail. I praise You today for all that You have done in my life. You are faithful even when I am faithless. Your love pursues me even when I am unlovable. Your forgiveness covers my sin and frees me from its penalty. I praise You for your love and faithfulness to me. Your presence in my life changes everything, empowering me to live each moment of every day, content in knowing You are in control. As I face today, Lord, remind me that no matter what happens, I can praise You! In the Mighty, Matchless Name of Jesus, Amen!!!
When Jesus came to earth He brought a special kind of love. This love is unselfish, compassionate and unconditional. He loves us just as we are. Our condition is irrelevant to His love. It is a love that picks us up just where we are in life and carries us further than we could ever go on our own. He gives us His love so we can give it to others in the same unselfish, compassionate, unconditional way He gave it to us. He tells us that this love will be our trademark. It will distinguish us as His followers. “By this, all men will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” John 13:15
Your actions reflect Jesus to the world around you. You can choose to offer love or to hold it back. In situations where it is hard to show love, ask Him to give you an abundance of His love in your heart so you are able to give love. Especially when you find it hard to do. As you move through your journey in life, be reminded of the distinguishing trademark you carry as one that loves Him. Ask for His love to be evident in your words and actions as you interact with others. Seek to bring unity and balance into relationships or situations you encounter. Listen to people with sincerity and interest. Ask for a graciousness that comes from His Spirit as you mingle with those in and out of your circle. Wear and show the love of Jesus as your distinguishing trademark or imprint. Although it’s not usually physical imprints, we do leave imprints of our presence everywhere we go. Is your trademark visible?
“Everything God does is right – the trademark on all his works is love.” Psalm 145:17
Live life and give people hope. Share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 5.15.18
