EVERLASTING LOVE

Most of us don’t go into a relationship thinking it’s simply temporary.  We think long term, from here to eternity, everlasting kind of love. The kind of love that never ends, because your love is special.

But every relationship here on earth is often peppered with self absorption, salted with selfishness, and seasoned with negativity and often times problems.  Those relationships are doomed before they even have a chance.

God doesn’t think like us mere mortals.  He’s God, remember.  He knows all about us and He wants us to be happy.  His love will never end, because of those feelings for us.  It isn’t because of our superior behavior, the amount of money we give to the church or charity, the volunteer hours we’re stacking up in order to feel good about ourselves.  It’s because of God’s perfect love – a love we will never be able to replicate.  Our good deeds are nothing but filthy rags to Him.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if other relationships were like that?  If people would open their hearts and hands to those they cherish the most – To put them first –  To be willing to make sacrifices – to forgive, forget, to love perfectly.  It would even be better if we were that way with our friendships, our co-workers, the waitress who serves you, the teller at the bank.  Think of how things would change if we could only love with the unconditional love God offers us every day.

Our world is only getting worse by the day.  We can sit and complain about it or we can do something to make it change.  What the world needs now, is love, sweet love!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Praise God that He doesn’t love like I do! His love changes people, while my love usually turns sour in an hour! Thanks for the exhortation!
