Love Always Wins

 

1 Corinthians 13

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues,they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Perfect Clarity

How many times have you wanted this?¬†I know I have…many times.

Things don’t always make sense in this life. The answers do not always come when we want them to and it can be pretty confusing and stressful sometimes.

The longer I am around this place we call Earth, the more I believe there is only one way we’re ever going to find perfect clarity.

1 Corinthians 13:12
Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

Even though I don’t know what’s ahead in my life down here, I believe that God does know up there…and I believe that He has something good planned, whatever it is.¬†That belief has always been enough for me, no matter what the situation. The more I trust in Him and the less I trust in anything else, the better off I am.

If you’re going through a time where things don’t make a lot of sense in your life then I hope you will read the verse above and the one below to see that your happy ending is being written right now, no matter what the trial is that you might be facing at the moment.

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Good things are ahead ūüôā

Believe in a better tomorrow and in the meantime, don’t forget to celebrate what you have today. Chances are if you take a minute to think about it, there is a lot more in your life that is worth celebrating and being thankful for than you might have been allowing yourself to realize.

God bless.
