True Love

Love is best seen as devotion and action, not an emotion. Love is not exclusively based on how we feel. Certainly our emotions are involved, but they cannot be our only criteria for love. True devotion will always lead to action—true love.

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with ACTIONS and in truth.
I John 3:18 (NIV)

Someone that says, “I love you” and just gives you words with NO ACTIONS is not TRUE LOVE. Nor is it how God planned us to love one another.

Christ was devoted to us enough to give his own life for us (Romans 5:8), even when he didn’t feel like it (Matthew 26:39).

It’s time to clean house….

Sometimes in life it’s time to clean out your house. Not only do we need to clean out our house we need to clean up our heart and mind. You know how you feel great when everything is organized and clean in your home. Well, our hearts and mind work the same way. There comes a time where you need to give it all to God…free your mind of all the junk (worry, hurt, fear, sadness, etc.) and free your heart from all the brokenness. Sometimes we have failed relationships, lost our job, lost a loved one…whatever has happened it takes over our minds and heart. When this happens you can’t love like God wants you to love others. You can’t live the life HE has planned for you. So “clean house”.

God will restore your mind and heart.

Strive to have a heart like Jesus and you will have a clear mind.

Love and Blessings,

Cheri
