Loving Thoughts

This week we’ve had more contact with friends from our long ago past, than I can remember having in a long, long time!!  What memories we have had in the contact!  Sweet, golden, ripe memories of love and laughter and the richness of sweet fellowship.

However, some of our sweet friends are enduring terrible trials—and I am asking you to pray for them.

I am writing this blog to encourage those who read, who are undergoing trials right now.

God is love, therefore—

God is patient with us. 

God is kind towards us.

God is not jealous, or boastful, or arrogant,

God does not act unbecomingly or demand His Own Way.  (Think about that for a moment– God who has all the power in the universe and could make each of us, do what He wants, chooses not to—chooses to give us a free will, and does not force His will on anyone.  This is what love does.)

God is not irritable with us and He keeps no record of being wronged. 

God does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

God never gives up on us, never loses faith in us, and God endures with us through every circumstance.   God never fails.      I Corinthians 13

So– Be– Encouraged!!

  1. Time with old friends is a gift…especially when you pick up as if no time or distance has ever separated. Saying a prayer for your friends tonight. So thankful for God’s love which you reminded us is amazing and unfailing.
