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. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13
Written by Angie Liu
As I sat and felt a bit of sorrow creeping up to me, I opened my heart to God and let Holy Spirit pour in to show me what was in front of me. My children laughing, playing with their father. My husband being playful and spending time with them. He was ignoring me and didn’t react much a long as I watched and reacted gently whenever my kids engaged in eye contact or asked me a question. I smiled and would reply quietly with a smile. These are moments that, despite my circumstances, are snapshots I’ve saved in my mind forever. They are moments still be cherished with all of us in a room together. God brought a joy into my heart. Tears to my eyes as I write this. Memories to keep. Blessings that my eyes are opened to. I lost the anger. Sadness is in my heart. But my heart is also filled. That is what God does. He fills me when I need. Not always the way I want. But in the way I needed. Love is not just an emotion. Love is God and God is Love. You can have love even when you are angry, sad, mad..
Or sometimes devoid of an emotional attachment to someone who you should be intimate with. God showed me his Love, how he sees us. And now I strive to see the hearts of others to feel God’s joy. That is why we are here on earth.
