I’ve never met someone who didn’t want love

I’ve never met some one who didn’t want to be loved. Or wanted to be wanted and fullfilled. Accepted. Respected. Honored. Appreciated. Treasured.

I’ve been tempted to find love in people. That doesn’t fulfill. It disappoints. And while it has been years since I’ve ‘loved’ that way. I still see it. And I see true love rejected. That kills me.

True love still loves after its been rejected. It’s name is Jesus. He is relentless. And while His love make no sense to us. Many accept it by faith. (Saved by grace through faith Eph 2:8)

John 15:9 [NASB]

Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.

My challenge for us today: pray for those who need true love. And that is, pray for us all. Because though we know true love through faith, we still need His love that overflows…and fulfills…

God gave me a dream

Love Created. And everything Love created was good. Genesis 1. And Love is God. And everything He created was intended to reflect His love and goodness. It was created to reflect Himself.

Goodness cannot be denied when it is seen nor can it be ignored. And so here I am thousand of years removed from the beginning of creation, Creating.

Ephesians 2:10 [NASB]

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Replace it with Love

During worship tonight at Fusion . Jesus spoke to me about replacing my cares with His love.

Replace worry with His love.
Replace fear with His love.
Replace doubt with His love.
Replace rejection with His love.
Replace emptiness with His love.
Replace loneliness with His love.
Replace bitterness with His love.
Replace hurt with His love.
Replace failures with His love.

This list could literally go on forever…

He is a redeemer, who continues to redeem us with Love. It won’t ever stop.

My challenge to you, replace whatever you are dealing with, with Christ’s unfailing Love.

Psalms 138:8 [NASB]

The Lord will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O Lord , is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

By the way, if you’re in the Atlanta area come see what God is doing in the lives of young adults http://fusionatl.org!!!! We would love to have you!

What are you hoping for?? I have been praying for my work to sell and i’ve been trying to serve ever since I transitioned to my current church a year ago.. I hope that you get to experience some ‘firsts’ this coming year.

Psalm 84:11 [NIV] For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

My challenge to you today: Keep trusting
