Thought of the day (5)
5. Thought of the day: God is Love. So it makes sense that you have to KNOW God in order to know and be able to Love others. I can see now why it is SOOO important to keep God in the center of all your relationships and to constantly push each other toward Him, because you want each other to know love, feel loved, and know the one who created Love.
So often we chase after the idea of finding "love" in other people or other things when the truth is that we will only find those we truly love or things we love when we are pursing God who created love. God then becomes a vital part of everything we do.
My prayer for you today is that you may know the almighty and caring God who created and perfectly demonstrated this thing called unconditional love. I pray that you will pursue God with every beat of your heart and every breathe you breathe so that He may reveal to you the true love that you seek. Finally, I pray that you will realize that God's love story for you is immeasurably more amazing than anything you could ever dream up, and that you can commit and trust that story that He has written no matter how many trials are thrown your way.
1 John 4:16-19
"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us."
