It's All About

"The way to freedom and escape from being condemned is to love. A person who is acting in love is always looking for the best in others, never gives up on them, never keeps records of their sins. A person who is acting in love never hopes the person gets what is coming to them. They aren't happy when another person suffers in consequence.

When you're looking for someone else's best, you hide your worst. When you never give up on someone, you will not be given up on. When you erase the sins of another in your mind, your sins are not remembered either. When you push through for another person, you get to go through, too. When you lift the weight of another person's consequences, you satisfy the Law of Love."

How hard of a reality are these truths?
Oh, they are so much easier said than done.
I hope that one day I satisfy the Law of Love.

Happy Weekend!

"Forgiveness is probably the most powerful weapon for extinguishing the fire of evil intentions.

The destruction stops at the point of love.

Forgiveness is not only a denial of the impulse of your own flesh it's also a denial of the intents of another's flesh.

It's the ultimate middle finger to the very entity of evil."

Just a few random thoughts that I loved....

χαρις: Greek for grace

Words of wisdom for the day:

"I can't mess up God's plan.

My failure doens't ruin me and my achievement doesn't elevate me.

This whole thing, life, is not about me or you, it's about Jesus.

The story of His love is reflected in the lives of His people,

not by what they do,

but by what He does with what they do.

Grace twists sin into something that reflects God's love and mercy."

Running Away...

I've learned a lot of lessons this past year and one of the most important is to not run away from your problems.
You can try and run far away, but they're going to catch up with you sooner or later.
I read these words today about avoiding problems and they spoke so much truth...

"You can't ignore the damaged places in your life because every time you try to move forward, and leave them behind, He'll bring you right back to them.

If you've glossed over and given them the seal of 'redeemed' even though they're not, those areas will bleed through your white wedding dress and let everyone know what you've been hiding.

You already know what area I'm talking about and you can push it down with all the authority of human stubornness, but you'll never win this battle.

You can go over this and over this as many times as you choose.

Being stubborn and seeing yourself through is not a virtue, it's a disease.

It's submission He wants, not strength.

God doesn't care how messy it gets, and He's in no hurry.

When you finally break down and face your demons, you will not be alone.

You'll find the strength and wisdom you've been striving for and it will come in your brokenness.

It's what you've wanted all along.

Grace is the photo op.

Grace is the only thing you should have on display.

All of the other things you want to pour out of your life will effortlessly flow from the well of grace by no stubborn striving of your own."

If there is something in your life you're running away from, please re-consider. Let me tell you, it is not going to make it go away.
He has a way of chasing us down, and He is ALWAYS faster than us...
