    I was reading in  Exodus 15 1 – 21  where Moses and Miriam and all of the Israelites were so happy for the children of GOD who had been delivered out of Egypt that they began singing!!! Verse 13 states ” In your unfailing Love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In your strength you will guid them to your Holy dwelling.” GOD is Good!!!

   You must know that the Israelites were extremely happy at that moment!!! They had been brought out of bondage; they had found a freedom previously unkown.Glory to GOD!!!

     Real and true Love , such as GOD’S Love , Agape love, has  direction. There is a purpose in Life for Love , therefore a definite path by which that Love can travel!!! As we go through this life and find our own purpose in Life it is never without the Love of GOD which we can strive for that purpose. Love is not just an emotional response to a given situation. Love is a real and valuable tool in which we should use to help us deal with life itself on a daily basis. As GOD has Loved us we should reach out ,in Love , for all of those in our possible grasp.We should even go as far as loving those who do not feel as though they need our Love, and , even those who consider themselves enemies. We should live in Love!!! Amen!!!

    What a BEAUTIFUL day today!!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

" Without your love, a love I need, it’s ...

    I was reading in John 13 34-35 where JESUS was giving a new commandment before HIS heading to the Cross!!! HE stated ” Love one another . By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you Love one another”!!! Amen!!!

    JESUS hit the nail right on the head . It is so easy to tell who is HIS disciple and who is not. In my daily walk with HIM I am surrounded by so many who , for selfishness , pride ,or some other reason ,are not capable of Loving in a manner which would edify GOD .  It seems as though so many people have been consumed with concern for no-one other than themselves. Selfishness is the shame of our day!!!                                   

                It is the sin of unforgiveness which allows humans to become trapped in “self”. If mankind can not learn to immediately forgive others we will never know forgiveness of ourselves , [ how can we forgive others when we can not forgive ourselves ? ], thus never learning to Love ourselves for who we are and thereby blocking our paths which would lead to Love for others!!! As a whole mankind must overcome every obstacle which would stand in the way of allowing us a deep personal Love for CHRIST JESUS and an impersonal Love for the entire human race. We must Love one another ; regardless!!!

       When I want a picture of Love I look no further than the Cross!!! ” For GOD so Loved the world that HE ……” !!!  Thank GOD for JESUS!!!

               If you have not heard these words today please allow me to be the first ; I Love you !!!!!!! Mark
