Perfect Love

It can cast out fear!

But to know love we must first be love.

To be love we must accept the love we didn’t deserve but grace gave it any way.

God gave His only son out of love for us.

The word of God is Gods love letter to us. The greatest command is to love!

So, the question becomes…

Have I accepted the full magnitude of the love that was provided for me?

Have I taken that love deep within?

Am I that love?

To be perfectly honest…No!

Maybe on a good day I can show some of the love thats been given to me. On a good day I can be some what that love to another. On a good day I can take in that love that was given.

Human love is conditional and limited.

Gods love is eternal and limitless.

Well atleast it is within myself. As I can only share from my perspective is that I see my limitations when it comes to receiving love and giving love.

There is all kinds of love that God spoke about (Agape, Phileo, Eros, Sorge,etc) and books have been written about it and to further break down the love demonstrations has even been written on in book the 5 Love Languanges (Yes I have it and have read it).

To be love and show love and receive love I must grow my fruit of love that came in at my salvation.(Galatians 5:22)

To grow the fruit of love is to exercise it. How do I exercise it? Daily we are given opportunity to show, walk or accept love in some way. It is how then when it is continued to be exercised that the perfect love comes in and fear begins to flee.

I still have to work the fruit of love in my life as it is a command to love and to be obedient to that truth is submission to the word and what it has commanded as a life for Christ to be and show in the world we live. His love in us can be a light and salt to the world. It compells and causes those who love is shown to, to be drawn and to thirts appropriatley for the love of God.

Life’s Adventure

The simple life pleasures!

Saturday I took a ride down to the beach.

Standing there listening to the waves crashing on the shore was relaxing. What wasn’t so relaxing was how crowded it was. So I basically enjoyed the sights and sounds for maybe 15 minutes, picked up a few shells, petted a sand crab, got my feet wet in the cold ocean then made my way on down the road.

Found a little coffee shop if it was on the beach that would so have been a dream, but it was close enough for the day. Sitting out in the beautiful sunshine taking in the beauty I was able see and enjoy. One thing would have made it better the more would be spending time talking to a good friend.

Journaling, praying, writing notes, and lesson plan prep for when I teach is what my time at the coffee shop consisted of for the time I was there.

Found Jockeys Ridge state park went dune climbing for a little while that was fun too sand in my toes, wind in my hair and for fall it sure was a hot day…LOL I believe it was close to 90s in temperature.

My Pastor has taught us that learning to quiet our soul is needful to hear the spirit of God in our life. I have found for me the beach, by sea, or any body of water I can get into that place to quiet my soul. I can sit there and cast cares, pray and quiet down my inner person of the soul. As I traveled home later that evening God did speak cause I had quieted down my soul for him to speak to me what He wants of me to do. Rest in Him and trust him! That’s the living and loving God I so greatfully and humbly serve.
