“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Today’s Destiny Word: LOVE
Today’s scripture passage is taken from 1 Corinthians 13, a.k.a the “Love Chapter”. We usually read this chapter at weddings, and at anniversaries, but we rarely, if ever, read it for our selves.
Today. Read this chapter for you! We are only to love one another as we love ourselves. If we love others, but hate ourselves, we have a contradiction within ourselves. Only a full vessel can pour out into another!
Here’s a simple note of encouragement to you today: Love thyself.
Be patient and kind with you – You are on a journey, each day taking a step towards your desired end. Have a little compassion with you.
You need love on the way to destiny! Why? because your destiny was birthed in love – God’s extreme love for you. He put together a vision for your life with thoughts of good for you.
Appreciate, value and honour who you are. Embrace your yesterday, today and tomorrow.
God has lavished so much love on you. If God loves you, and He certainly does, please love you too!
You are not your mistakes. You are not you wrong decisions. You are not what others say about you. You are a child of God.
Wherever you find yourself today remember all is not lost. God still has a great plan for you and He desires to make you into all that He designed you to be. Remember, Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.
You can make it!
So come on, find a way to show some love to you today!
I leave you with this quote from Boyd K. Packer:
“You are a child of God He is the father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in you mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God.”
