It’s love week yall…
I know many singles hate valentines day. I really don’t. I mean I don’t really celebrate it, because well– i am cheap and don’t really want to buy myself chocolates- but I do celebrate that I am loved.
On a retreat I worked this past weekend, we talked about how the word Love is thrown around with all kinds of different meanings. I love my family, I love my husband , I love God but we also use the same word for I love carrots (ok I don’t but I thought I would convince myself that right there)
My chalkboard markers which are so much fun to write with on my awesome chalkboard window my sister and her husband made for me. It makes me want to be all artsy.
So I love all these things. But there is another definition of love in the Bible . It’s the AGAPE love, the unconditional love that goes so deep that Romans 8 promises us that nothing will ever separate you or me from that love IN Christ Jesus. Glory!
I want to love deeper, more unconditionally. I want to pour out love on others without the selfish motives of being loved back in return.
It hit me afresh today.
Freedom to love is found in His freeing love.
His love that answers every question I have, every insecurity, every deep need.
His freeing love frees me to love.
