As we come to a close on our monthly focus of love, I just wanted to encourage everyone that love truly does win. Most of my audience may know the familiar passage of scripture of 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, but for those who don't this is what it says: "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. "
Can the love that you have for your vision or business be described as the love that is mentioned in this scripture?
Can I be honest? Some days, I didn't reflect this form of love towards my business. Sometimes I was impatient with progress and a little jealous that other people's businesses were progressing further than mine. I started getting irritable and frustrated because I couldn't figure out what to do with marketing my business. However, God, in the most loving way reminded me that I couldn't give up because people needed me. He reminded me that I can't lose faith because HE called me to this area of service. His LOVE won me over to get back in the ring again.
I want to win you over with love today, and demonstrate love to you through this post. Be patient and kind to yourself and others. Don't be jealous or boastful or rude about where you currently are. Don't be irritable. I KNOW it gets tough, but hang in there. You are equipped for the vision. I pray that you open your eyes and arms to receive the love that God has for you, so that you can allow that love to overtake you. Once that love overtakes you, you will then be able to win others over with that same love.
Love is a powerful weapon! Use it accordingly. It ALWAYS wins.
I hope you've enjoyed our focus on love. Stay tuned for next month new focus. It will be announced on Friday!!
