Learning to Love
by Miss. Johnson
I am a 26 yr old single mother my son is 3 yrs old and I was engaged to a wonderful man that i have been with for 2 yrs. He left me after I quit my job because we planned to move out of state now I am in a really tight situation but I learned from this I realized what kind of person I was and it wasn't a very nice one I was very selfish to a man who treated me like a princess and my son like his own. I realized I didn't know how to love so I have really been doing all the studying I can to learn how to love. I have been learning so much from the bible, applying it is the hard part. My ex and I are currently working things out I have really been trying to change to be a better person mostly for myself and I think he has seen that, more importantly I hope God can see it.
Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient love is kind; love does not envy or boast; its is not arrogant or rude. love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
When I think about this verse of what love is I feel like I dont match up to even one of those things. I have been known to be very impatient, mean, conceited, stubborn, very irritable. I know the only way I can learn to love is with Gods help and strength.
Questions it brought to my mind...
My closing prayer...
I pray that God will give me the strength to be a better person and to see my faults. I pray he helps me to see when I am doing these wrong things and guides me to do the right thing. I pray that I learn to love others and stop being so selfish
