Day 9: Love Beyond ourselves


What if instead of making a

RESOLUTION~

I LOVED GOD with ALL my HEART?

Would I let go of the burdens that are laying heavy on my HEART? Would I "Cast all of my anxiety on HIM because HE cares for me" (I Peter 5:7)? What if I LOVED GOD with ALL my SOUL?

Would I take care of this temple where my SOUL lives?

Would I not put any unwholesome foods in my temple?

Would I move my body temple in a way that brings

vigor and strength and stamina to my SOUL? What if I LOVED GOD with ALL my MIND? Would I "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ"? (2 Corinthians 10:5)~

All the negative, all the lies, all the unwholesome words

that fill my mind about myself and about others?

What if I made

RESOLUTIONS

to eat better

to exercise daily

to obey in all things~

would I be motivated to stay the course?

Maybe for a milli second

as I fail over &over again when I try to

LOVE myself with my whole HEART, SOUL, and MIND. But what if I & what if you

LOVED THE LORD GOD with

ALL our HEART and with

ALL our SOUL and with

ALL our MIND~

Would we then be LOVING ourselves as HE LOVES us? Oh THANK YOU GOD that

JESUS is MORE THAN A RESOLUTION

as HE is a RELATIONSHIP

that begins with being

STILL IN YOU

which is

LOVING YOU

with our

ALL

so that

JESUS will take us places where we are in awe and living as one who is

LOVED by the LOVER of our SOUL

because of the

"GOODNESS OF GOD" (listen to the song below)

that never changes but changes us.
