All My Love...
I'm richly blessed. And not because today I received roses and candy and breakfast in bed, but because I get to walk with the man of my dreams every. single. day. I'm a part of a "kingdom dream team." I'm "about my Father's business" alongside the best partner anyone could ask for. It's an honor and I'm humbled every day that I'm worthy of being yoked to such a man as this. We are trying to run hard each day after Jesus and the things He has called us to. I've seen this man, my husband, come alive more this past year then any other time. Through the hard times, the struggles, the victories and humbling provisions...he has come alive.
I celebrate love today. Love from a man that leads me to greater depths of the love of my Father. A man who knows that the only way my heart will ever be truly satisfied is at the feet of my Jesus. Love that "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things"(1 Cor. 13:7).
So, today, as I thank God for the love of this man and for the greatest love ever known through Jesus...I'm heavy hearted for those who know neither of these. For the girl who has never received a kind word from her father or known the gentle touch of a husband, or heard soft words of encouragement from any man in her life. I hurt for those who don't know the love of an eternally kind Father. The overwhelming flood of the tangible presence of a holy God. I want all to know the love I know...the love of the Father and the love of the Body of Christ.
Jesus, teach us to love others as you love them. Let us give fully of ourselves with every person who comes into our lives. To love our husbands, children, friends, family, and our neighbor selflessly and fully. Bring new revelation of Your love for us, so that our love for others would flow clean and pure.
