And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
Even when we have doubts and fears, and our faith and hope in life’s situations flickers on and off, one thing is constant and that’s God’s love; this is the one thing that should remain a constant for us also…our love for Him, our love for ourselves, and our love for other people…despite their faults.
Love your family, love your friends, love your neighbors, love your associates, love complete strangers, love your service providers, love your bill collectors, and love your enemies. Then watch as the world begins to look different as you begin looking through a different lens.
I love you all.
Father I am so thankful and grateful for Your love, for it is like no other. I can rely upon Your love remaining constant for eternity.
Your love is infinite, unlike anything a human can give because You give freely without keeping track of my wrongs, without expectations, without ultimatums, and without game playing; Your love is simply an “Is” without explanation.
I have faith in You that You will always provide for me, and that You will protect me from harm. I have faith in You that You will place the right people in my life at the right time, and You will remove those individuals that don’t belong in my life now or in the future.
I have hope, and I continue to hope for the best. I hope for an enduring, loving, respectful, caring, honest, faithful, faith-filled, committed and monogamous relationship with a person who also loves and has faith in You, and never loses hope in You or mankind.
My faith and my hope may be tested, and I may sometimes waver- but one thing You know Father is that my love never leaves and is never rattled or swayed. I love You Lord.
If I didn’t love You I couldn’t possibly love myself- for You created and care for me.
Thank You for Your love Father. In Your son Jesus’ name I pray to You with an abundance of love, hope and faith. Amen.
