Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something that I think is important to everyone. Love.
With this week having Valentine's Day, I thought it was a good time to discuss... love.
To me, love is very important. I believe love is also very important to many others.
Being human, and thinking only in human ways, many people would think that I have no love. In the human aspect, I believe this is true.
After all, I am no longer married, because my husband, Gordon... passed away more than seven (7) years ago. I have never once gone out on a date, with anyone. So, you can see that I have no one in my life that I could fall in love with.
In another human way, I can say that I'm not important to many people.
In fact, there's very few that I'm important to. Even though I love them.
Yes, I'm referring to real life friends... and even some family members.
Some real life friends and family members avoid me.
Some have even 'unfriended' me on Facebook (FB), if they are members on FB. Why? I can't say for sure, but I believe that they have not liked the fact that I post mainly for God, on FB.
Has this made me not love them?
If there have been circumstances where I was hurt by what anyone did to me, I have done what God would have me do. I've forgiven whoever has hurt me.
By forgiving them, it clears my heart and mind of being hurt. And, I've continued to love them. Even if they don't love me.
I know that this has been part of me, because of my relationship with God.
Just as we read, in 1 John 4:16, "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
Yes, love remains inside me, because of knowing and believing the love that God has for us.
God IS love; and as today's Bible verse tells us... he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. In other words, love is in me.
For this, I am truly grateful. And, always will be.
For I always feel love.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
