You are so loved that someone took themselves from the abundance of a beautiful untainted life, to a world of poverty and ridicule.
If I had truly realized how loved I was and not spent so many years searching to be loved, how much anguish I could have spared myself.
We need to understand why people do what they do, instead of judging them.
For me, I kept looking for "love" in all the wrong places, leading to many unfortunate circumstances in my life. ...
Does that mean that God loves me less because of that?
Did Jesus not spare the woman at the wells life, beckoning her to Him, even though she had been living a life against his wishes?
Did he not spare Marys life from death of stoning, by showing that we are ALL tainted with sin..and unworthy to judge another.
Its a sad life, to search and search for love and constantly be left broken and in pain.
It doesn't just affect you either, but others around you.
If I could take the time I spent wasting, searching for love...and used it to love God, then sharing to others..wow I would have had ALOT of time with God.
Its sad, it doesn't just end with searching for the right spouse but also the right life or the perfect job, house, car,clothes...media..instead of learning more about how much He loves us.
I think life would be SO much better if we redirected what we think we want to what God wants for us.
If we but spend time in His word everyday, using it to learn more about Him, then also redirecting it to others..helping them when they are struggling or need help, I think we would have a lot less problems in life.
We would be a lot happier also.
My life is in a bit of a mess right now..but I have no one to blame but myself.
I cant blame God..it isn't His fault.
So my words today of "wisdom" is to say several times a day..less me more Him.
Let me live my life for Jesus and not for myself.
Let me learn about this person who laid down His life for me...because no truer form of love is someone who would die on the cross for my sins.
YOU are LOVED.
