Living the Life of Love

Living the Life of Love


Living the life of love

 that is from above

will cost you dearly

Stretch you daily.


It’s not a matter of feeling

But a matter of action

Based on a quality decision

It is Holy Spirit-induced

And God-propelled

And sustained

and maintained

It is sacrificial

And self-less

You cannot do it

in your own strength

But in the strength of the Lord.

You must die daily

to do it sincerely.


4     Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

5     does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

6     does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

7     bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8          Love never fails.1Cor13:4-8

God of the Summer and the Winter

winter wow

God of the Summer and the Winter

Remains the same; He never changes

But He is Lord over all and changes things

Allows adversity and prosperity

In the changing seasons;

Allows pluses and minuses

Crosses and losses,

Gains and pains, deaths and births

Rise and fall of big and small

He is altogether righteous

Bounteous, plenteous,

Precious and fabulous.

Therefore your night will be greeted by day

 In the fullness of time as you wait on Him

Your winter will be replaced by summer

As you hope and pray and trust in Him

17   You have set all the borders of the earth; You have made summer and winter.
