Love Month: 14 days to a life of Love

Ok Ladies! February is LOVE month!!! The bible says a lot about love. It says that God is love and that we are to love like God loves. In 1 Corinthians there is a verse that describes love. It gives 14 characteristics of love and we are going to tackle one of those every day! Hopefully it will draw each one of us closer into a life of love!

"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." 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Day 1
Love is
Who in your life really test your p
atience? What are some things in your life that make you impatient? I am probably one of the most impatient people around, but I had a little boy 1yr ago and boy can I say I am learing to be patient everyday! I have learned that life doesn’t just happen NOW I have to be patient and deal with every situation as it comes. I have to pray and seek God about how He wants me to handle all of the situations that come my way. How is God wanting you to love with patience? If it is a person that test your patience ask God to help you see how being patient with that person can show them God’s love. If it is a life situation ask God to show you how to wait on his timing! If it is your child ask God to give you creativity to deal with them patiently in love.

Today focus on someone or something that test your p
atience: Allow God to come into that situation or relationship! He will help you to be patiently loving in the situation or with that person.

Here are some scriptures on p

1 Thesselonians 5:14-15
And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.

Ecclesiastes 7:8 The patient in sprit is better than proud in sprit

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap, if we do not grow faint.
