Love is Kind

Today was a pretty amazing day! I am thoroughly exhausted and thoroughly thankful it is Friday! Tomorrow is a day of solitude and my sabbath. Unfortunately I think I am going to sleep half the day since I have a cold.

Today I have been feeling overwhelmed by the future and the many changes that are happening in my life. I am transitioning within ministries at church, starting school and all my children are now back from Christmas vacation. I am bound to soon be busy!

A couple weeks ago, someone said to me, “You are going to have to get a thick skin!” in reference to some other writing that I have been doing in my life. I have been thinking about it quite a bit. I have come to the conclusion that I think God wants the direct opposite. I think God wants me to have a really thin skin. Maybe a better way of saying it would be a soft heart. I think a thick skin would automatically translate into hardening my heart a bit against my fellow people. I think God wants me to keep a soft heart. I believe He wants me to get my identity and all my approval from Him, so I can be criticized heavily by people and not become discouraged or quit loving them.

Today was filled with voices from my past and future. I am quite thankful all I have to do is live in the present! Celebrate Recovery was tonight. A brother shared an amazing testimony. I love it when brothers share amazing testimonies. It so humanizes men for me. Some days I could swear they are an entirely different species! But tonight I was quite glad to be part of the same species with them.

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. – I Corinthians 13:4-7
