Letting Love Win

snoopy.jpg

Love can win, every time.

It is easy to get lost in blame, anger, resentment, self-pity.

It is hard to let go, to forgive, to love even if the other person isn’t sorry or doesn’t realize they’ve hurt.

But love frees, forgiveness lightens, God works through sacrifice.

Light will always shine brighter than the darkness.

Kindness can sift through the hardest ground.

Love can win, every time, if I will be open and not let my pride stand in the way.

(officially ended sermon to myself….hope it encouraged you as well.  🙂  )

 

 

Wide Open

1086

Honesty can scare because there is no hiding

Words and feelings bare and exposed

Wide open

Honesty can heal if honesty is kind

Words and feelings showing care and concern

Wide open

Honesty is found in the face of Love

The One who died for us and all our words and feelings

Arms wide open

Mercy wide open

Heaven wide open

Love Does No Harm

A lion, tiger and bear who are best friends at a Georgia animal rescue home.  This touches my heart, and challenges me.  Blessings to you today, Lisa

Love in its Truest Form

“For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself.”  ~John 5:26

“For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me.” ~John 5:36b

“Jesus said, “It is finished.”  With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”  ~John 19:30

Jesus was not killed.  Jesus gave himself for me, and for you.  Out of the truest love, and the greatest hope that we would just believe that He did this amazing thing for us.  He’s alive, and listening, and still loving.  True love, in a form never seen before, and in a form never to be equaled.  Blessings on your day, Lisa
