I Love You!
” I was Thinking that one morning I may not wake up and I asked myself…..
Do all my family and Friends including my Blogging Friends know that I Love them, have I taken the time to tell them?”
Although I look forward to each day and I’m very thankful for them I was wondering….. If I died today, tomorrow or next week, are there any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that need rekindling, relationships needing to be restored or three special words needing to be said.
So I decided to let everyone of my Family and Friends know I Love them and given the chance also those who consider me their enemy or judge my weakness and shortcomings critically and cannot Love me back.
But my family and Friends and even my enemies, need to know my Love for them is not based on what they do or don’t do or if they meet my needs or agree with me, it does not depend on how important they are in Society or how much wealth they have, nor how they look and it is not based on sentimental feelings that come and go.
My Love has a solid foundation which is unchangeable and constant it’s source comes from the reality of who they are in the Lord and how He sees them, so it’s not their acceptance and Love it’s His that keeps my Love constant and growing.
When I’m rejected by others through their words or actions and I choose to forgive them, The Lord gives me the strength to forgive and than to move on in Love not with bitterness and resentment and seeking revenge.
Although at times this may mean Separation which is never my will, I still continue to Love the person and forgive them even if I can’t accept their actions and because of negative influences this may mean although it is not as it should be, that we may not be able to continue sharing our lives together until there is genuine heart repentance and a willingness to change so our Unity in The Lord can be restored .
Although I endeavor to Live each today to the fullest without regrets seeking ways to show Love and kindness to others, I sometimes fail and need forgiveness and encouragement to keep trying and not to give up, to keep aiming to be Perfected in Love.
Sometimes I will also need correction or to be warned or to warn and correct someone else when they are heading in the wrong direction or are in error but this is not based on theirs or my own understanding, feelings or needs but always on God’s Truth.
On this earth Tomorrow is not promised, only in Eternity can we be sure
of a Tomorrow that promises, Hope, Peace and Joy
which will be never ending and truly fulfilling.
So just in case God calls me home before I see you again
I’m taking the opportunity to tell you personally now…..
That I Love You and always will but remember this does not depend on you or me forcing ourselves to Love but on God as we choose to Love and
allow Him to Empower us and than to show
His Love in Words and Actions.
Christian Love Always Your Friend Anne.
