Do you know what Love is?

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

God is so GOOD! Hallelujah Praise GOD thank you JESUS!

Do you know? Do you know what love is?

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 1 Corinthians 13:4

There are many forms of Love, that we relate to. But I believe one of the most important Love is to love yourself. Truly…

To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” Mark 12:33

Well I had a great lesson in Love, by my lovely baby sister who is on the left. She’s so beautiful and at times she doesn’t know it. But my sister with the little or much that she has, always goes out of her way to cheer a friend up. She always remembers how someone has been there for her and she’s just awesome.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Corinthians 13:5

So she comes up, out of the blue mind you, with a gift to surprise her friend who is following her dreams in upstate NY where she plays College ball. I think also her friend, our friend 🙂  is such an inspiration and is also amazing.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 1 Corinthians 13:6

You know, I believe if it wasn’t for Jesus and the love he has given us well we’d be lost. Jesus gives us the freedom to truly love not only others but ourselves making it possible to love others in a unique way. With no barriers or fear. Love, allows us to fully be ourselves no matter what the consequences because…

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4:18

I don’t know if you have noticed, but in every step you take to better yourself, or to do good in some way shape or form there is always someone or something trying to hold you back or saying that ‘you can’t’. And without LOVE…

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:7

…That never loses faith and believes, than you may become nothing more than a slave to what is around you.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

And if this STRENGTH, This love is not inside you…Than what do you have?

If you crumble under the pressure of what you can and cannot do than is that truly loving yourself?

Or would it be Pushing the limits and truly finding out for yourself who you are in Christ, who you are in Love? Whether it is Love of a Sport or dream, Loving a Love one, showing Love to a friend or someone who has hurt you, finding out what Love truly means without letting the pressure of the box that people may try to put you in, why not just allow yourself to be freed by love.

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (- Jesus ) John 13:35

To the recipient of this Care package:

Love is the greatest gift you HAVE. Love comes from within yourself before it can ever be seen. There are many trials in life, and many obstacles that come in many forms including at times your own family and even friends (But not Baby and I hehe 😀 ),but take heart and know that the greatest power is inside you when you have JESUS in your heart, when you have LOVE in your heart. As long as you follow your heart doing the right thing and believing, having faith because all things are possible with GOD (Matthew 19:26). Nothing can stand in your way to living a rich life full of abundance and LOVE. Be strong & courageous.
