What God’s Love is Like….

What Love Is All About
.
Love 3
.
It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 a.m., when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb.
 
He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.
 
On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. While taking care of his wound, we began to engage in conversation. I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.
 
I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.
 
I was surprised, and asked him, “And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?
 
”He smiled as He patted my hand and said,” she doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.
 
“I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought…
 
“That is the kind of Love I want in my life.    Love 3

 True Love or Agape Love includes all three types of Love – unconditional, Phileo- friendship, and Eros emotional or physical intimacy.
 
We find this Love mentioned in the Bible, it is God’s Love and when we are Born again it is in us too, we have His seed or Nature and  His Love is not lukewarm, it is Pure, Passionate and Focused.
.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance: against such there is no law.

1 Corinthians 13:4- 8 Love suffers long and is Kind; Love does not envy; Love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the Truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

.
We cannot have this type of Love without the Holy Spirit working in our lives. God asks us His Redeemed Children to choose to have this Love for others even those who call us their enemy and He will empower us to Love them, one day they may be our friend in the Lord, only God knows their heart.
 
God's Love 3
 True Love never gives up and doesn’t count the cost of caring”
 
True Love asks for forgiveness or forgives then moves on in Love, it doesn’t keep a record of wrongs.
 
True Love learns from the mistakes of the past and then puts then behind.
 
True Love seeks the best in others and themselves but cares enough to warn others when needed, and when in danger appreciates correction too because True Love accepts and Loves the person but hates the sins and yet is tolerant of weaknesses and overlooks shortcomings.
 
 True Love puts others first serving them with a humble Spirit.
 

.
Sunrise 3
.
 
True Love includes Thankfulness, like when  seeing a Sunrise or Sunset and knowing who to Thank.
.
JesusWorld3
.
The happiest people are those who express True Love, they don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have and are thankful. This is because their happiness is not in the things of this world but in the Creator of it.
 

  True Love, Peace, Hope and Joy comes from Friendship with the Lord.

  6. A lot of times, God speaks to us through the people we meet everyday. When you wrote, “He smiled as he patted my hand and said, “She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.” I felt guilty knowing God never gave up on me while there are so many times in my life that I got so preoccupied with worldly concerns that I forgot why I am here in the first place. Thank you once again for sharing a story that reminds us of our faith. God bless you both.

      Hi island traveler, thank you dear friend for your honesty, a heart that acknowelges wrong and corrects the error, is a heart that pleases God. King David did evil things but he repented and rejected the evil and then did good and God always looks on a heart that has repented and chooses to forget the past.

      Christian Love Anne.

    Hi MERLINBLOGSS, thank you for the reblog, it is good you feel such great love for God our Awesome Creator and yes He Loves us greatly. God is Loving, Merciful and compassionate to those who are His heart Children and as you shared it is also True we reap what we sow.

    God gives us guidlines to protect us and one I didn’t know for a long time and so got into big trouble, is that only He knows the future and He tells us not to have anything to do with those who say they do and He also tells us in the Bible He alone knows a persons heart and what they are really like.

    Take Care – Christian Love from both of us – Anne

  9. Words can never express the awesomeness of God’s love, but we who experience it, know the REALITY of it. No matter what circumstances we face, we KNOW that His love is constant and that He only wants the very, very best for us.

    What an amazing God!

      Hi Angela, how very True what you shared, God can be no other way, He is Love and all good things come from Him not bad, even when we walk away in rebellion because we are the Children of His heart, He draws us gently back by showing us just how much He Loves us, yes we suffer for the wrong we do but God does not keep a record of wrong when we repent from the heart. His Love also is so much more powerful then anything eles in the Universe and we can Love Him and others the same when we ask for His empowering, then as we walk in the Fruit of The Spirit it deepens and nourishes our souls and our hearts cry out Abba Father what an amazing God you are!

      I noticed Angela that you have posted again, I will visit soon, there is just so much more to do with Ron away, even with the shopping, also settling in Mo Joe takes time and with still having hacker problems needing to be resolved, there has been little time left to Blog .

      Take Care my dear Sister in The Lord and God bless you greatly now and always.

      Christian Love Anne.

      Very True Shenine God knows the Children of His heart and my life shows this so very well, when I was not focused on God He kept me within His sight and He never stopped Loving me, of course I did not have His full blessings and I also reaped the bad I sowed, this is His discipline and chastising but He never abandoned me and He grieved for the pain I needlessly suffered.

      Thank you Shenine you are a blessing, I Love your heart focus and it’s Melody.

      Christian Love Anne.
