Love

 I have a hard time understanding what the word love means.  At times I have not loved people. At times I have competed with people. At times I have withheld things that would have helped others. At times I have thought I was more important than others. I have struggled to understand that God loves me.  

Humans cannot change the meaning of the word love. They can represent (or misrepresent) it. 

Would you be satisfied if all you did was help other people succeed? 

Would you be willing to be made a spectacle of to help? Would you be willing to loose all sense of dignity to help? Would you be prepared to loose the dream or purpose  that is you to help? 

Could another's prosperity be more important than yours? Could another's emotional well being be more important than yours? Could another's dream or purpose be more important than yours? Could another's promotion be more important than yours? Could another's idea of improvement be more important than yours?


Would you give up your dream or purpose to see another's dream fulfilled?    Would you give up your job so another could have a job? Would you give your house  so another can have a house? Would you give your education so another can be educated? Would you give  your career so another can have one? God Himself would reveal Himself to you. He would reveal that He loves you so much that He would. He would bring you to a place of understanding of Him that you would know that nothing to God is more valuable than you


There is no obstacle, no lack, no hurt, no past mistake, no grievance to great to the one who fully understands the extent of God's acceptance. If you and I are struggling in life we are struggling to understand how much God loves us. He willingly gave up Someone of greater value than Himself for you and I.     

. In my failure to understand Who You are I ask You to reveal Yourself to me
