Unbreakable bonds …
What does it mean to love self and neighbor with the love of God?
We are all broken beings. We can’t love God fully but only with what He’s given us. His love transforms. Allows one to give birth to a greater love. Acts of charity- love of the neighbour. Because how can we say we love God when we fail to love our brothers and sisters who make up- The Body of Christ?
Love, a sacred unity between person or person(s). It is neither a feeling nor slight affection or attraction but rather a decision based on loving the other whole-heartedly. Regardless of the desired outcome or a change of situation that arises. Checking our emotions will be a good gauge if we truly loved another with pure intent.
Loving means to let go. To detach ourselves and to love another for their good. Only because God purifies our hearts so that we may learn to love more fully and completely like Him. Without any pretense, but with a genuine love interest for another.
There are so many ways we can connect with God.
Just to share a few:
- Spend time in nature (Just you & God)
- Listening to songs (that Glorify God)
- Reading His WORD (Reflecting on words that speak to you)
- Take time for YOU (Yes you! Spend time to know you)
- Doing things you love- Bask in God’s complete freedom & joy
- Love your body- Exercise, Eat well, Sleep well …
The possibilities are endless. Look to God. What is it that you love, enjoy doing the most?To sing? To dance? To make art? To create? To write? To inspire? Within us are the powers of God manifest through the working of the Holy Spirit. If only you knew the power you had within you, you would be awakened with new strength.
I love this song, it speaks to me a lot.
Especially when Jesus has risen! Halleluja! It speaks of the beauty and wonder of God I can’t even describe. Creation. He created us. How amazing is that? When you begin to tap into the source of light, you receive light. God is all good, how can He give us something bad?
Look at ourselves. What are we afraid of? Truth? or Lies? God’s word is truth, and in Him there is life. Take a look at our choices, are we really choosing God or ourselves? Pray for grace, ask for wisdom, and when you do not know how to pray, the Holy Spirit will guide you.
Have faith, & Believe in Him.
