What’s Your Definition of Love?

…2 Young men jokingly confronted me on a sidewalk one night

  • God keeps no record of wrongs
  • God doesn’t rejoice in iniquity
  • But rejoices in the truth
  • God is patient
  • God is kind (1 Corinthians 13)

A friend sold his house and beloved orchard to buy a new home in a new state to begin his and his second wife’s new life.

Heard upon waking in my spirit last month: “To Make You Feel My Love” sung by Garth Brooks

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”                      1 John 4:18

 

Early Spring

Ask rain from the Lord
in the season of the spring rain,
from the Lord who makes the storm clouds,
and he will give them showers of rain,
to everyone the vegetation in the field.”              Zechariah 10:1 (ESV)

Sufferings

“Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”                                  1 Peter 4:12-13

Beautiful song, prayer with scripture from City Harvest Church, Singapore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CtugyJHPgg.    “Oh, the Glory of Your Presence” (God gave me tangible answer to prayer once after praising Him with this song)

Derek Prince said of Father God: Some things only come about by suffering…He’s interested in His sharing His sufferings with us

With God All Things Are Possible

“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”

26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Jesus in Matthew 19:23-26
