Love

Unbreakable bonds …

Question
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.

What is faith?

20160512_174438“Faith is confidence of things hoped for and the assurance of what we do not see.”

-Hebrews 11:1


This song makes me wanna sing and dance, to proclaim His love for me. A song filled with a conviction of who I am in Christ Jesus, therefore I can only sing:

Holy, there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder
Show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me

I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken

Prayer for Generosity (St. Ignatius of Loyola)

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your most Holy will.
In Jesus name, Amen
