The way I want to Love

It feels like i have been gone from my blog for so long, my life has been busy.  Being a mom, a caregiver, a sister, a daughter, a friend, so many hats for one to wear.  I recently watched a video on you tube.

 I found myself beginning to realize that my most important role, daughter of God, was being pushed aside.  I had worked so hard to build it up, speak to him daily, thank him for the good, and ask him to guide me in the bad.  I guess when things are so good i forget that he is a jealous God.  He wants me, cares for me, his heart yearns for me. 

Part of my new years resolution was to learn to love a little more like Jesus.  I've sat down and wrote half of i don't know how many blogs i wanted to post to share with my friends and family.  I'm living in a way i never thought possible.  After i made this resolution a friend posted "We as humans see people as worms, God sees them as beautiful butterflies!"  This made me take a closer look at how i view others around me, not just family and friends, the individuals i work with, co-workers, neighbors, people at the store, anyone i come into contact with.  As a human it is natural to take a glance and make a judgement or notice the undesirable, but thinking about how beautiful each life is totally made me see the beauty, the goodness, the heart of these people.  Just because i started viewing others as butterflies and not worms was just the first eye opener. 

1. God's love is merciful (full of compassion, providing relief).
"But God, who is rich in mercy because of His great love with which He loved us." - Eph. 2:4

2. God's love for us is beyond our human comprehension.
"May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height. To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; and you may be filled with all the fullness of God." -Eph.3:18-19

3. God's love for us is supreme, he sacrificed his only son for the us.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." -John 3:16

4. God's love for us, as His children, who he choose to create. He did not have to but He choose to.
"Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved." - Eph.1:5-6.

5. Nothing can separate us from God's love.
"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created things, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom. 8:38-39

Jariah is awake.....until next time please ponder how it is that you show love, weather its to our heavenly Father, your family, your your significant other.
