Ok…so my one goal to myself for this year is going to be to write something every day…That is about the only thing I will set in glue. The rest are just going to be plans…
My true goal though I have decided is to LOVE – that is what Corinthians tells us to do. Seek the best and Love is the best.
That is what I posted on Facebook for New Year,
so that makes it public and I am accountable, right? The funny thing was I met two amazing women at the local pub here on Eastern Shore in Virginia on New Years’ Eve (only place open and didn’t want to sit out in the cold until 10pm to watch the crab pot fall…more on that later). I had posted about love that day and guess what we talked about for a couple of hours…you guessed it LOVE.
One girl has just divorced her husband and was feeling the pain. I mentioned about the love Paul the Apostle talks about in Corinthians 13! It turns out that was the verse they read at their wedding! More pain for her right there, as she felt that she had definitely not been walking in that realm of Love in her marriage.
Love is patient, kind, does not envy or boast, not arrogant, or rude. It does not insist on its own way; It is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing; but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Love never ends.
The next morning on the first day of the year whilst attending a gorgeous little Baptist church here in Cape Charles, with a couple of new friends, the pastor preached on – you guessed it, a call to duty to LOVE.
So I think what I will do in the next few blogs is dissect just what love is, how we get it, and how do we walk in it.
We are fed so many lies from the world on love eg. It’s a feeling. It goes away. It makes us completely happy – if it doesn’t it mustn’t be right; have changed; have no hope so time to move on.
So I am going to dissect all of the above thoughts on love and see how I fare this year as I endeavour to walk in the Fruit of the Spirit one of which is love and just see how that is worked out in my life.
Trust you will enjoy the journey with me..and comments will be welcome!
Until next time Narelle
