Day 14: Love Day


I didn't want to

but I had to

because it is what HE asked me to do.

So I didn't say what I wanted to say. So I didn't do what I wanted to do.

Instead I did what HE asked me to~

"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone..."

Because it is what HE DOES~

"Forgive as the LORD forgave you" (Colossians 3:13).

And LOVE replaced Bitterness

because that is what

LOVE DOES.

I didn't want to

but I had to

because it what HE asked me to do.

"Love one another..."

Because it is what HE DOES~

"...As I have loved you, so you must love one another" (John 13:34)

I didn't want to

but I had to

because HE IS the ONE I follow~

"the one who says he abides in HIM ought himself..."

Because HE SHOWS me~

"to walk in the same manner as HE walked" ( I John 2:6)

I didn't want to

until I had to do

because what I was doing wasn't working anymore~

"What a wretched man I am!

Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?" (Romans 7:24)

And there HE WAS like HE always WAS yet I never wanted to admit

that I needed HIM because

pride pushed HIM aside,

but it was time to push me aside and listen to the ONE who never gave up on me~

"Humble yourselves before the Lord..."

And HE DID what HE SAID HE would do~

"...and HE will lift you up" (James 4:10).

Therefore I did what I had to do~

"If you declare with your mouth, 'JESUS IS LORD',

and believe in your heart that GOD raised HIM from the dead...."

And HE DID what HE SAID HE would do~

"... you will be saved" (Romans 10:9).

Oh "What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?"

The ONE whose LOVE LANGUAGE goes beyond just WORDS~

"...Thanks be to GOD, who delivers me through JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD!" (Romans 7:25).

Have you experienced

GOD'S LOVE LANGUAGE~

"Relentless GRACE would chase this rebel down. Crawl into this prisoner's cage.

Take my hand and pull me out" (Casting Crowns, "Love Moved First)

Because HIS LOVE chased me down & chases you down

because that is what HIS LOVE DOES~

"We love because HE first loved us" (1 John 4:19)

"LOVE MOVED FIRST" (listen to the song below)
