Love is patient and kind: love does not envy or boast: it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice
at wrongdoings, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends....faith, hope, and love abide,
these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE..
In Crazy Love, Chan task us to replace love at the beginning and insert our names. I.E. Garrett is patient and kind...
After doing so just from the beginning how does it make you feel?
Are you truly patient and kind, do you not envy or boast, are you not arrogant or rude, etc. Maybe today we should strive to become those things.
Remember God loves us, he made us, but at the same time that means we are not perfect, we are human. We are going to mess up time after time, but we must learn from mistakes and seek to be better.
My mom has always told me that my Great Grandmother would always say. "Some of the best lesson are the bought ones." For a grandmother she was very insightful. So much in her saying, God feels the same way. We are going to fall short, but that doesn't mean we fall short and forget about it. We have to learn from it. We have to repent our sins, and keep on pushing forward to do better. Just remember we will never reach the place of perfection but we must strive to get as close to that level as possible, all while doing it the way that is pleasing to God.
My prayer for you today is to look at your current situtation and rise up from the ashes, dust yourself off and strive to live up to your potential.
Have a blessed day.
