The Greatest Command- What SHOULD define Christians and set them apart from others. I've learned that so many let "rules", "stereotypes" and "judgments" replace these commands.. I've learned this bc I was guilty of such. But I am now at peace, bc that is no longer the person I am. I will not allow the world's idea of Christianity to define who I am. Instead, I will live by these commands all the days of my life, and let my Lord and Savior critique, mold and shape me along the way. <3
Whether it's a close friend, relative or lover, I believe God assigns specific people roles and abilities that they use to impact your life. It's hard to detect these people, but once they enter your life, they leave a sense of fulfillment that only your heart and soul can recognize. So don't be closed off to those who are repetitively in your life or simply just show you compassion.. bc you never know if him/her may just be "that person".. Or better yet, you could be "that person" to them.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless (Psalm 84:11, NIV). God is our provider and friend. He will never leave us and force us to carry our burdens alone. Instead, He's constantly at our side asking us to give them up for Him to carry, so that we can peacefully enjoy our journey through life. <3
