Just take a moment to read it.
To really let it sink in.
Are you already skimming?
That’s me too.
I’m using the minutes for the most…
While often missing the–
Come out of the shallows.
A deep breath and–
Take a Selah moment and let it sink in:
“to pause and value”
What is love?
Love is patient and kind;
Are you sifting-shifting?
Stop. And drink. down. every. drop…
Love does not envy or boast;
It is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
It is not irritable or resentful;
It does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
But rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things.
Love never ends…
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three;
But the greatest of these is love.
~ 1 Corinthians 13
“If we’re not completely convinced that His love is ours right now–
fully and unalterably ours– we’ll always hide in the shadows,
focusing on our performance, fearing His wrath…
His love doesn’t fluctuate from day-to-day.
It was settled the moment He set it upon you before the foundation of the world.”
(Elyse Fitzpatrick, Because He Loves Me)
Pause with me for a moment…
And give thanks.
