So no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do; I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others then for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first”, doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end.
1 Corinthians 13
Lord, teach me how to love deeper in the purest of ways. Expand my heart to those who have hurt me and who have betrayed my trust. Bind my heart with grace and forgiveness. Help me to heal and to open my arms wider to You and the journey You have for me. Help me to see myself with love and respect as your chosen child. I am set free in your love and I choose to trust in You. I will look for the best in myself and in others, even those who have done wrong by me. Help me to see these people through your eyes instead of through my feelings. Thank you for setting me free and for giving me a fresh start today. I am actively choosing to not look back and dwell on the past, but to embrace my future with hope and to keep going until eternity. When I am done this race, I want to look back and know that I ran with God intended love.
