Love

love is

Love is an amazing thing. The love you feel for your spouse, the love you feel for your children, the love you feel for your friends. They are all so unique and so very fulfilling. I have found that in order to enjoy these types of love that I must first truly love myself. This can be so hard sometimes because we are our biggest critic and we often see faults in ourselves that aren’t even there. Accept yourself for who you are, the good and the bad, and love yourself! You are an amazing person with unbelievable gifts! You have so much to offer the world! You are such a blessing! You are AWESOME! Have faith in yourself and love yourself for without this you cannot truly enjoy the blessing of loving others.

Then there is the greatest love of all…the love that God has for us. I have the hardest time comprehending this love. It is so deep and so large and so perfect. He loves me…even when I fail Him (which is often). A friend of mine said something to me about God’s love that blew my mind. She said that God cannot love us anymore than He already does. I always had thought that the more I did for Him the more He would love me. He loves me so much more than I could ever imagine and nothing I do will make Him love me more OR love me less. His love for me is unending, complete and constant. How amazing is that?!

I hope that today you will feel His perfect love and transfer that into a love for who you are. When you are filled with that love it will bubble over into all the other areas of your life! You will be blessed and in turn you will bless those around you…what a beautiful thing!
