"May the love of God simply ooze out of me, that others will know His love." -SDB
I have my word ... loveprints what's the next step? How do I live it? What does it look like? How do I walk in love, each and every step, leaving loveprints on the lives of those I touch. How do I ooze? What is His love?
Digging deep, I'm heading straight to the source. The Word of God, filled to the brim with perfect love. Examples. Life lessons. The hows, whys, and yes I can do this encouragement that I need to step out and do it.
1 Corinthians 16:14 challenges me, in a good way, in the best way "Let all that you do be done with love." My God is good. He wouldn't give me something to do that was impossible in this life. Therefore, this must be possible. I must be able, wired, filled with a God given ability, to live it loud. To live love out loud each and every day!
God is love. His perfect love never fails. When I walk in love, He is with me! Goodness, do you know what this means? My faith is bubbling in eager expectation. This could change my life. Scratch that. This WILL change my life and the lives of everyone around me.
Step by step, I'm walking. Leaving little loveprints in my path. It's a journey. I'm not all the way there. To be honest, I would have to say I would give myself an F in the past for walking in love. No grading on the curve. No condemnation over here, only rejoicing in what is to come.
His hope. His life. His love. Filling me up. Imagine. Be encouraged today and blessed bunches as we splash in His love together.
"Let us love one another, for love is from God; and he who loves is born of God and is progressively coming to know and understand God." - 1 John 4:7
