Love is…..


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

We all know this scripture. It’s pretty scary. And haven’t we been told, repeatedly, that ‘always’ is one of the words you ‘never’ use in relationships dialogues. Apparently Papa God disagrees. This is what love is…always. I was disqualified at patient and well, there you go, nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Facing all my fears and failures once again.

And there is my answer and my hope and my joy. When I search in me I do not find the perfection that is God’s love. When I search Jesus, I do.  He is our most excellent way.

love is patient and kind
