I don’t want to LOVE only when someone loves me back. Or when everything is going well and everything’s roses and lilies.
BUT, I want to love when it’s most difficult. When it hurts, when it’s uncomfortable, when it’s the least expected.
I want to surprise others with Love.
It’s not from my own strength but I know that it would be the Love of the Lord within me, that would allow me to do such a big task.
And I don’t want it to be a chore, but an HONOR.
I know that I would be “dying” to my fleshy desires and doing the will of my Father!
And I all want to do is please God with my obedience.
For God said, If you LOVE Me, you’ll keep my commandments!
I challenge you my brothers/sisters in the Lord: LOVE BEYOND THE SURFACE!
