Learning to Love

by Miss. Johnson
(Mason, MI)

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.

My thoughts...
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

It's a lifetime's journey of seeking to love God and our neighbour, failing, repenting, starting again, failing, repenting, starting again, until our dying day.

I don't necesarrily think it is about succeeding but about telling God how much we need Him EVERYDAY and recognising that everything we do depends on Him. When we fail, He also wants us to recognise we have fallen short and wants us like little children to go up to him in perfect trust and love and just admit our failures to Him.
