So… remember the word of the year for me? GROW. I feel like I am. Slowly at times, and drastically at others. But this past week, we (hubby and I) have finally started to be able to obtain closure about a situation we’ve been dealing with for a few years now. Through it all, I’ve discovered what true love is, what true grace is.
Love is easy to talk about, easy to think you feel it towards someone.
But true love will be lasting, unconditional, and without manipulation.
I Corinthians 13:4-8 “Charity (love) suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth…”
Love isn’t manipulative- because it doesn’t seek it’s own. Love is extending grace, allowing people to grow- because there is no envy and it is long suffering.
So here I am… just sitting over here… G-R-O-W-I-N-G this year. And I kinda like it…
