Abiding Day 16

I was struck by the truth yesterday that abiding in love is abiding in God because God is love.  So I wish I would have thought of this earlier in the month but there will be days (like today) that I simply have a verse.  Something to meditate on because meditating on God’s truth isContinue reading “Abiding Day 16”

Love and Fear

Last week I wrote that this 31 day challenge was harder than I thought.  I never imagined just writing once a day for 31 days could be so difficult.  It has stretched me in a lot of ways and the last four days have been especially difficult. I spent a wonderful weekend out of stateContinue reading “Love and Fear”

Grace in Love

So yesterday I did not post. I failed the challenge. I didn’t forget. I had one of those “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” kind of day.

It’s so easy for me to fall into the bad habit of separating myself from the world.Continue reading “Gather Together, because No One is Called to Hermitude.”

Abide, 31 Days of Love: an experiment

“But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.” ~1 Corinthians 13:13 Over the last couple weeks I’ve felt compelled, although I’m not sure why, to join The Nester (Myquillyn Smith) and her idea to write a blog post every day for 31 Days. I’m really not a “blogger”Continue reading “Abide, 31 Days of Love: an experiment”
