On the 8th I wrote a message for my Breaking Bread with Natasha blog reflecting on the scripture from 1 Corinthians 13:13. My aunt Valerie (aka “Princess”) wrote such a beautiful, powerful, and moving note to me that I just had to share it with everyone on that blog as well as my Paradigm Life blog; of course with her permission. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Remember my rules on this blog: Please post uplifting and encouraging words here. Refrain from advertising, promoting, or recruiting. Let us find ways to unite rather than fight!
Now let’s begin:
Valerie’s Reflection 1.9.11
There are so many benefits received from knowing God’s love. God’s love is true. A forgiving power filled with mercy and grace. Its power gives us strength when we need to be fulfilled, sustained and motivated. It is impossible to imagine where I might be without God and his amazing love. I know he loves me and I want to please him. I have struggled with so much fear, fear to be me, fear to venture out into the sea of possibilities. I know God has a plan for our lives. Plans to prosper us, to do good and not to harm us. I also know that no weapon formed against us shall proper.
So, I say to myself and to you, let’s please God. Let’s please God by believing his love is the greatest force on earth; greater than any pain we will endure and definitely greater than fear that will never captivate us. Shalom!
