I was reading Philemon this morning, and came across this verse Philemon 1:7 Your love has given me much joy and comfort, my brother, for your kindness has refreshed the hearts of God's people. Love can do so much more than we realize!
Love can bring joy in our times of sorrow. Love can bring comfort when our hearts are in pieces. Love can lift us up when we feel low, love can bring peace to the chaos, love can make our hearts feel full and refreshed. Love can soften us when we get hard. Love can bring hope when we feel like we have none. Love can bring new life to us! Love can give us strength when we feel weak, love can help us endure the difficult times, love can help us to get up when we fall! Most of all love set us free!!! Jesus love for us is why He went to the cross to set us free from our sin!
The next time you wonder how important love is, I challenge you to sit back, relax and remember all of the times you have felt loved, truly loved. How did it make you feel? What did love do for you in those times? Love is so powerful, do not underestimate it!
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
