“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love” (1 Corinthians 16:13-14)
Be strong and do all things with love. Have you noticed that all things seem easier when completed with love, when instilling love? Simply put, all things sealed with love never seem as difficult. The lord instills his love in everything he does and creates. You can see that in nature, in his miracles, in everyday life. I find beauty in the smallest things because I see my lord in all things. I am grateful to him for allowing me to live, to smell the beautiful flowers he created for us, to be able to look at the beautiful sun that rises every morning, to be able to feel the rain drops when they descend from above, I am grateful to be able to embrace my kids and feel their kisses. I am grateful for feeling emotions of love and compassion. I am grateful for the difficulties as well as the victories because one would not be as important if I didn’t experience the other. Simply put, I am grateful for God and his mercy in providing me with everlasting life, after this life has ended.
Be strong. Stand your ground. Live in faith for your lord and see the beauty in all things. Do all things with love. Not half ways and simply because you have to, but with full blown love.
Have a great week!
