Well Hello March…You are finally here!
I have to be honest, I say that with pure raw mixed emotions. You see February was a good month. No actually it was AMAZING! Right down to the very last day. So how could March top it? Only God knows.
February is a month popular for being the month of Love because of its main holiday, Valentine’s Day. I don’t really ever celebrate the holiday itself because I believe love should be something that is celebrated everyday! For the past few months, God has had me on a roller coaster of emotions again, molding me and preparing me for what he has to come in my life. The great part of it has been the knowledge that God has imparted on me, the sense of determination that has taken over me and the pure joy and love that has filled me completely spiritually and physically. I AM ALIVE! I feel alive, awakened and completely renewed in my heart and soul.
Love has a way of curing all. As it says in Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”
God imparts wisdom and knowledge but that can go. What will never fade is Love. One of my favorite teachings in the bible is about love and how amazing it is and how strong God created it to be.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV)
I love love love these beautiful words in the bible! If you break down each verse in itself, you begin to see how wonderfully pure and rare love is. I say rare because in the world we live in, love is taken for granted. If we all including myself would remember these words daily, and try to live by them, wouldn’t the world be a better place?
My goal in life as the person God created me to be is to live out these virtues in the above verses daily and in the last few months in the strangest, unconventional but yet in the most comfortable way, God has been bringing out each quality in me. His unconditional love has been present like no other time in my life. The Aha moments God has brought to my life have been trying, confusing, enjoyable, pleasurable, painful, peaceful and raw all wrapped into one. But the love that God has allowed me to experience through it all compares to none and no other and truly makes me want to be a better women. When God’s love is present truly, you are seeing the mountains move and if not you are filled with the strength to move them with no excuses.
God has placed in my heart that this next month and the months ahead will be the test of time. A time to let go and let God. A time to cherish moments, family, friends and come to the realization that God wants to give us the desires of our hearts if we are only open to receiving JESUS’ unconditional love into our lives purely without doubts or fears. If God continues to call me like that again, I will surely continue to answer.
God bless you all,
