Today’s Scripture: - Jeremiah 10:24
“Correct me, LORD, but only with justice - not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.”
God is love! Above all things, God is love and has always been love. Our definition of love is much different than God’s definition of love. Our love is not only conditional, but it is also mercurial. We love based on feeling sand emotions that can change from one moment to the next. But, God’s love is unconditional, which means that His love is expressed towards the objects of His love despite their disposition towards Him. In other words, God loves without placing any conditions on the loved ones. God loves because it is in his nature to love. Let us aim to be more like God in not just being loving, but in the very way that we love as spiritual beings having a human experience.
We thank you for you being who you are. For surely if it had not been for you being who you are, we would not be who we are and we are thankful. We are thankful for your agility to turn pain into purpose, trouble into triumph, opposition into opportunity. You are a God who chooses to love us past our insecurities and shortcomings. Your kindness and mercy is irreplaceable.
Safeguard our hearts and the hearts of those we love with your type of agape love. Safeguard us in love that will help us to worship, honor and thank you for all of your good. Safeguard our hearts with the love that it takes to hodld on to faith and remain true to our hearts and the callings you have placed in our lives.
Clear our heads and fill our minds with expectation. Awake our slow body and energize our heart with love in action. Ignite our spirit and set this day on fire with promise through love. Make the ordinary extraordinary.
In Jesus’ Name
