God is Love. God created us in His image. We are love.
The greatest commandments given us are to love God with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
It is difficult at times,
Most of what we think about or perceive as truth may infact be false.
You cannot believe or rely on everything you think.
There are misconceptions so small breeding within our minds that can have catastrophic consequences when verbalized or acted upon.
There were and probably are circumstances you are living in right now fueling those misconceptions but take comfort in knowing you have the choice to change.
Repentance is defined as the action of repenting; sincere regret or remorse. In Biblical terms it is a call to persons to make a radical turn from one way of life to another.
This can only happen when your mind will and emotions are submitted to it and in your heart you believe in the choice to change.
I don’t have all the answers and above all else I know I have to work on picking up my cross daily to live in love and be a light for others.
We all have a created value. We must decide to be the change in order to find that created value in ourselves and to see it in others.
Heck, we may even be able to help others find it in themselves.
Philippians 4:4-4-8 NIV
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Think on These Things
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.
