And now these three remain:faith, hope and love.But the greatest of these is love.
I’m sure you’ve heard the above scripture quoted in church, but have you allowed them to truly speak to your heart?
When all else fails, remember the three things that remain:
Faith – When your fears try to take over, allow your faith to prevail. Let it speak directly to your fears and tell them to leave as it has no place here. Our God is bigger than your deepest fear, and He holds you in the palm of His hand.
Hope – God has instilled hope without our hearts. No matter what we’re facing, there’s always a glimmer of hope if we only grasp on to it and cling to it with all of our might. God provides hope in the mist of devastating circumstances or situations.
Love – Is there anything sweeter than to know, feel, and to be told that you are loved? Without a shadow of a doubt, you can feel yourself wrapped in the love of your God. No storm can rage against you that God isn’t going to be there shielding you with His great love. I believe that with every ounce of my being.
If you’re going through a hard time, cling to that scripture – allow faith to take over and leave fear in the rear view mirror. Cling to the hope that is in Jesus Christ. And feel His love wash over you. There is no greater love than the love the Father has for His children.
Imagine how you feel when you look at your children. They are little angels sent straight from Heaven above to make our hearts dance wildly and feel unconditional love like never before. Realize that how you feel about your children and how you look at them is exactly the way our Father God looks at us and loves us – only a thousand times greater! Can you imagine that? Believe it, because it’s true!
When things of this world pass away, when people disappoint you and hurt you, know that God is right there with you every step of the way. He wants to restore your faith, give you a new hope and love on you like never before, if you will only allow Him to do so.
