Recently we were memorizing/learning the verses most often used at weddings, the Love Chapter, 1 Corinthians 13. We only did verses 4 thru 7 which was plenty for the youngins'.
I always enjoy the conviction and admonition that comes to you when you are least expecting it. These verses did that to me, and they haven't stopped for over a week. I feel like someone dropped a ton of rocks on me.
I pray they are burned in my soul.
The big ones for me:
Love DOES NOT behave rudely. Ouch!
Love is NOT irritable or resentful. Double Ouch!
Love Bears all things; Believes all things; Hopes all things; Endures all things. (painful moaning).......call for help!!!
I have not shown love as I should. I am working on it. This will take my lifetime I am sure. Until then please forgive me.
I praise God for our new day so that we may begin again. I praise God for his Son, Jesus, who already paid for my sinful selfish lack of love. I praise God that He forgives me daily. He knows I would never be able to do this EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER. Whew! I am so glad he KNOWS me.
