~~~How do I LOVE? ~~~

In my quest to keeping it real today
I forgot to stop first thing
 to take time with my

But guess what, He was still waiting for me
when I decided to stop and come.
And today I'd like to share just what he
had on HIS mind to share with me.

I am still reading Psalms.
(on my i-pad, luv!!!)

Psalms 7: 9b, 10, 11, 12 (NIV)

For you look deep within the mind and heart,
O righteous God.
God is my shield,
saving those whose hearts are true and right.
God is an honest judge.
He is angry with the wicked every day.
If a person does not repent,
God will sharpen his sword;

Now you might ask,
How do I love...
what does that have to do
with this passage.
Let me share with you...

Do you have those people in your life
that are just plain hard to like or love?
who have messed their lives up?
they don't live as GOD would have them?
or have you been hurt
 or has someone
you love been hurt by another?

God asked me do I LOVE the unlovely in my life?
Hmmm...many times I must admit a
big fat NO.  I'd rather run in the
opposite direction than to have to deal
with an unpleasant person or situation
that *I* don't approve of.
Sound familiar?

If God  looks deep into my heart and sees
this unwillingness to love in is sin.
God loves the unlovely and
wants me to so as well.

Doesnt mean it will be easy...just love.

Leave the rest to Him. 
He always has a better way
of dealing with anyone than we ever would.


Be Blessed,
