Yesterday I discovered an unknown fact about myself…I have impatient tendencies!
God is Love and Love is God, they are interchangeable! Boil down all the ways that God has moved in your life thus far, and you will be left with a power substance, love.
I’m going to go out on an audacious limb and say that Believers wrestle with God’s Love for them as a result of their own imperfect interpretations and not because they don’t believe it.
The manifestation of love can be equated to a recipe for baking cupcakes. Patience, kindness, humility, one’s composure are much like the sugar, flour, eggs and extract flavoring needed for an edible outcome. If one of the ingredients of love is missing or expired then the spiritual result will be subpar, just as buttercream frosting made without butter will be lacking in taste.
Note: Psalm 136 and 1 Corinthians 13 are great places to hone in on the most successful recipe for love.
My countless loses in the boxing ring against God’s affection for me were all due to my penchant of impatience as I couldn’t comprehend a love that I wasn’t even displaying to myself and others.
It’s true, your loved ones bring out the absolute the best and worse in you. Special thanks to the four beats of my heart for showing me the beautiful and needs-improvement pieces of my life.
Until Sunday & Happy Love-Baking,
