  1. A Living Example of Love

    And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

    – Romans 5:5

    Don’t ever worry about not having enough love inside you. The Word says God’s love is shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost. God’s love is in you. What you need to do is make a decision and let it flow.

    Pray this prayer today.

    In Jesus’ Name, I make a fresh and strong commitment today to live the life of love, to let the tenderness of God flow through me and heal the wounded hearts of those I meet.

    Father, teach me to love even when things go wrong. To be patient and kind when the children are underfoot. To overlook the spiteful words of an angry spouse. To rejoice when someone at the office gets the raise that I thought I needed. Teach me to talk in love, to lay gossip quietly aside and to take up words of grace instead.

    Lord, Your Word says that Your love is already inside me...that it has been shed abroad in my heart. So today, I resolve to remove every obstacle that would keep that love from flowing freely into the lives of others. I put resentments behind me, and I forgive all those who’ve done me wrong.

    In the days ahead, cause me to increase and excel and overflow with Your love. Cause me to be what this world needs most of all...a living example of love. Amen.

  3. I like that prayer, it is so easy to fall into the trap of becoming judgmental in this world.

  4. This is so wonderful. Thank you for posting this, Cturtle.

  5. God bless you and good morning, CTurtle;

    Thank you for our "Daily Bread." I'm blessed by this reminder. God's Word of His love is immeasurable. I feel we struggle with this when we don't feel the love from people, or a certain individual, so we end up dismissing God's ultimate love and the love in us.

    We all want to be loved by somebody but the closer we get with Jesus, the deeper our relationship with Him, the more we begin to feel secure that His great love supersedes all and allows us to pass the love in us to others.

    God bless you, CTurtle and FC Jim.
  6. Hi Doug,
    Brother you hit the nail squarely on the head with this one.
    People would be totally surprised at what the Lord calls judging and the consequences of it.

    Cturtle and I went through a very intense long series on this that lasted about a month. This is anywhere from 5 hours to 9 hours a day for at least 30 days.

    Changed our lives and we still have yet to master this but we sure can repent and change things a lot faster.

    Glad to have you aboard Brother
