“Lord, teach me to love. Show me how to care for others. Cause my soul to burn within for the fellowship of my brothers. Only You can break these chains that have held me for so long. Your my hope, my only hope. Teach me to love.”
The new testament is FULL of God telling us, in one way or another, to LOVE. Love others and treat others as you would want them to treat you. How can something so simple, be so hard at times? We make it hard. Loving comes easy for me, but opening up my heart to let others get close, is another story. I have the fear of being hurt. Therefore, I pray the above chorus, because it should be the way we all want our hearts to be.
Women are emotional creatures. When we love, we love deeply. When we hurt, we hurt deeply. Our thought process is 100% different from a man’s. If a situation happens that involves both, my husband and I, it will eat at me for days, while David forgets about it shortly. I really wish that I had the ability to let things roll off of me. It is like a chain that weighs you down and takes away your ability to breath deeply and easily. God doesn’t want us to feel that way. That is why He tells us that His yoke is easy and His burden is light!
We can not truly know how to love someone, unless God’s love is in us. It’s a love like no other and doesn’t cost a thing. God always loves us no matter what. Even if you choose to turn away from Him, He still loves you. God has an endless love.
As mothers, or those of you that are mothers at heart, it is our responsibility to teach the love of God to our children. Though the above is just a chorus from a song long ago, it makes a great prayer for you to teach your child or children. If we do not teach them Christ’s love, the world will teach them a cheap imitation of it. I for one, do not want my children short changed on Agape love!
Have a great day and love you all tremendously!!! =)
When you have a true anointing, Satan will try EVERYTHING that he can, to stop your ministry from flowing! You are a huge threat to him. I know that he has thrown lots of things my way to shut me up. I’ve allowed him to stop my ministry so that others can do what they are called to do, without me being in the way. Not that I’m this great, awesome singer or anything, it’s just when God places a calling on you, it is without question. I have lived by the motto: “I’d rather sit back in defeat because God has not called me to compete!” Many Christians in today’s society, have turned ministry, of every kind, into a competition of sorts. That is definitely NOT God’s will. That is another reason why ‘many are called, but few are chosen.’
We are supposed to be ONE body. To work together for the salvation of souls, not to put on one man shows or performances for mans benifit. When you ‘minister’ for someone to hear you or see you, you may need to do a heart check.
I’ve had to ask God’s forgiveness for letting foolish things block His flow in me. On the other hand, I don’t want to come across uncaring or hurt others feelings. I don’t want ANYONE to feel the pain that I have endured over the past year and a half. When you are not allowing Holy Spirit to work in you, it causes pain physically, mentally, and spiritually. It caused friendships to be ruined. Unhappiness in your heart because satan has stolen your joy. Bitterness because others are getting to do YOUR hearts desire.
The Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 1:6,
“Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.”
Remember the gift that God has placed in your spirit. Don’t sit on it, for time is short. I am preaching to myself. I had to eat this before I could feed it to the public.
I know Who has called me and I will do my best for His benefit. My desire is to be pleasing to God and to spread His word. Be blessed and allow God to flow through you.
