Love is….

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (ESV ) 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.

Greetings to my wonderful WIFI ministry subscribers, family and friends all around the world….  I awake

today with “LOVE” on my mind… When I think about how Jesus gave his only begotten son that we may have

life…. That’s enough right there to let me know that Jesus loves me, oh yes he does…

Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that “I’m in Love with Jesus and he’s  in Love with  me….”  This is the only long term relationship

I’ve  ever kept in these  46 years outside of my family… I’m so happy to report that there has never been a

break up between us, and our love just keeps on getting  stronger and stronger..  Even the times when I did

not do right, he just kept right on being God throwing his loving arms around me, and for that I say “Thank

you”   When we come to realization and realize that ‘Love” is really all we need… Everything else falls in

place… I love some of the finest of things, but I’m convinced that only what you do for Christ will last…

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)  17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed

away; behold, all things are become new.

 

Everyday as I  walk around I see all of his great creations and how he made everything so beautiful and so

unique…  I amazed everyday that the sun comes up, when the stars and  moon comes out at night…  I’m

amazed with  man in general how we are all different, but yet all the same…  Our animals are some unique

and beautiful creations also..   I’m fascinated with all the beautiful flowers, plants and trees… When I look all

around I see nothing but Love letting me know that there is a God that sits high and looks low.   Everyday, I

take the time out to just say Thank You Lord for showing me what Love really is…

New Direction– I’m in Love with Jesus
