Love Made Me Love

baby-1884898__480I have found that I need to be careful not to fall into the trap of trying to appear as if I have my life “together” in the hopes of being a better example for God.  Since I am human and not without fault, I will never truly have a handle on everything.  If I did, I might not seek out God’s help.  The most important thing I can do in an effort to bring God glory is to let others see His love in me.  That is what drew me to Him.  I saw His love expressed through a friend who chose to accept me as I was at a time when she could have passed judgement instead.  The love she showed me not only glorified Him, but it made me more curious to know the God she loved.

Love takes your hand
and walks beside you
in silence
Love invites you
to climb onto its back
and be carried
Love owes you nothing
but wants to give you everything
Love says, “let’s do this again tomorrow,”
when you feel like giving up.
