Let your dream be bigger than your fear.
Hold on to your vision and persevere.
The fuel for your journey is a spark.
By perseverance the snail reached the ark.

Love always perseveres.
a force strong and true.
It motivates your best interests
and brings out the best in you.
.

Don’t despise the day of small things.
It is the small thing that forms
the framework of our day.
Keep an attitude of gratitude
as the Lord leads you to do
all things His way.
.

Father Jean Nicholas Grou wrote:
“Little things come daily, hourly, within
our reach, and they are no less calculated
to set forward our growth in holiness than
are the greater occasions which occur but
rarely. Moreover. fidelity in trifles. and an earnest
seeking to please God in little matters is a test of
real devotion and love.”

Let your aim be to please our dear Lord perfectly
in little things.”

Open your front door-
Just stand there and listen.
Do you hear it?
Believe me, it is there!

 

This time, close your door-
turn off the television.
Listen to the sounds in your own home.
Hear it? Sure you do…it’s everywhere!

 

To be certain, listen to your own heart.
You hear that?
It’s unmistakable-
It’s coming through loud and clear.

 

“I want to be loved!”
But wait, there’s more!
“and I want to love!”
There is no need so dear.

 

The world cries out for love that heals,
unites, and inspires.
To love and be loved
is a basic need that every soul desires.

 

This is no news to God.
He created us for love.
Our love for God and our neighbor
Fulfills the law of God above.

 

Footnote:
“Love is like the five loaves and two fishes.
It doesn’t start to multiply
until you give it away.”

Day 21,

Real Love

1 John 3:18-20

 

Beloved,

 

Humans talk a lot about love. But do you know what love is?

Get ready to practice my definition of love so you’ll know when you see the real thing.

One of the big things you need to know is that being hard on yourself blocks love for you and through you.

Self-criticism, guilt, and going over the past to see what you’ve done wrong goes against my idea of love.

If I want you to know something about yourself, I will tell you, no need to dig around and hurt yourself.

My conviction is timely and gentle. It will come as a relief, not as a tirade.

I am so much greater than your perceptions, worries, and judgements.

I know everything about you and that’s a lot more than you know about yourself.

Once you start putting your thinking under my control and stop condemning yourself, you are free and bold before me.

That’s when you experience the presence of my Holy Spirit flowing through you and setting things right.

That’s when you begin receiving whatever you ask in My name.

That’s when you can love others without judging them.

The Curve in the Road

24 Mar

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

People need people.

That was God’s ultimate plan

when He created the earth

and related Himself to man.

 

To love and be loved

is the theme of every love song.

Open your heart to welcome it.

True love can heal a wrong.

 

God didn’t design us to live alone.

That’s why Adam was given a mate.

Open your heart to receive love.

You are robbing yourself if you wait.

 

We can support one another in all that we do,

and offer help when there is a need.

We all aspire to find that “curve in the road”

that satisfies the need to succeed.

Day 13

Love

1 Corinthians 13

 

Beloved,

The greatest gift is love.

Love never gives up.

I want you to learn to love yourself,

And love others, too.

Love is contented with what it has.

Love does not walk around with its nose in the air.

Love doesn’t force others.

Love gives anger to Me so that it doesn’t explode onto people.

Love keeps going and giving.

 

Love is Eternal

How do you describe it?
It is being comfortable with someone.
You don’t have to impress them.
Their heart you have already won.

 

Allow them to see your weaknesses-
they love too much to condemn.
“Oh, Lord, I am me, no other can I be.
Thank you for loving me as I am.”

 

“Just as I am, without one plea,
but that Thy blood was shed for me.
And that Thou bidest me come to Thee,
Oh, Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Amen!

The Epitome of Love

“One word frees us of the weight and pain of life, that word is “love”

The irony of that quote is it was written before Christ by a

Greek Tragedian.

 

We are so blessed to know that God came in the flesh to redeem
us back unto himself.
That was true love.

 

I thrive on love.
There is promise in the air.
I stand on the word of God.
I see Him everywhere.

 

He is in the air I breathe-
His promises fill my soul.
Without Him I can do nothing,
With Him, I am whole.

 

We are all so different-
still all of God’s own plan.
I marvel how He leads us
to support our fellow man.

 

I thirst to hear the words you speak-
I long to know your soul.
Tho diverse in our interests-
Our similarities make us whole.

 

 

God’s Plan About Love

11 Nov

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

We are here to love, to serve God and our fellow man.
What greater purpose can there be than to meet
with God’s ultimate plan?

 

His purpose is to conform us to the image of His Son.
It is God who works in us His will to be done.

 

It is human to question God’s purpose and will.
Have faith to believe, dear friend.
Soul be still!

 

It is at the end of the day when my work is done
that I have time to reflect on what God has done.

 

It was in my struggle to understand
God’s purpose in allowing death and sorrow
that led to the answer, by way of the spirit,
to face my tomorrow.
