"I don't know where to put my books, I don't remember where anything goes," He said with tears in his eyes.
Now who was the foolish one?
Oh to have God's love sweep the cluttered rooms of my heart, filling each shelf with patience, kindness, and joy.
There would be fewer tears and more understanding in my life.
God's love toward us reveals itself in this prayer. If you struggle with self-loathing, bitterness, anger or any sin, put your name in the prayer.
Your love that is patient and kind with Cherrilynn...not rude, irritable or resentful toward Cherrilynn.
Try it with your name.
The result of praying this prayer helped me to love others.
"I could never forgive that person!" I thought to myself, "and God wants me to love them?
Enduring abuse as a child wreaked havoc in many areas of my life. I knew God wanted me to forgive...but how?
I did not have the strength or desire to love that person.
In my eyes, that person deserved the wrath of God not forgiveness.
I turned to Scripture.
and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:5
Knowing that I have God's love in me gave me hope.
love the unlovable,
forgive the unforgivable,
and pray for what seems to be a hopeless situation.
The Living and Active Word of God has gone deep into my bitter soul and eradicated the hate and replaced it with love.
I shed my rude, arrogant behavior and replace it with kindness and patience.
Is there someone you need to love more? Someone who has violated you, hurt you, lied to you or slandered you?"
Will you join me in aligning our hearts with the heart of God?
God wants us free from the burdens of bitterness, guilt, anger and pain.
Let's leave bitterness and anger beind.
We no longer need to be jealous when someone gets the job, car, or relationship we want. We will be happy for them because we love them with the love of God.
This will happen when we pray THE PRAYER.
What do you struggle with?
Will you pray for me as I pray for you?
