Spark friends love and God's love...

Friday, January 29, 2010

I was just reading some blog entries and notice how many of us have such emotional times right now. In those emotions emits a sense of honesty and truth about ourselves, and I am loving that these are being shared on blog posts in the Spark world.

As I prepare for Sunday's sermon, reading about love from 1st Corinithians and the rejection of Jesus at Nazareth, it reminds me of how close those scriptures lie in the real world today... in our own lives, in our homes, in our hearts. Rejecting ourselves for who we've become, attempting to share love with others... but not realizing that we have forgotten to love who we HAVE become. Who we are right now, in this time of transition, will be a huge chapter in our lives. Accepting it will also be the climax of that chapter. And what we do next, will be a great lead in to the next chapter in our lives. Embrace who you are... reject the negative things you feel about yourself and replace them with some, possibly surprising, things that you love about yourself.

If there was one thing I could share with my Spark friends today, it would be that God loves you. But not just that... that the community of Spark, near and far, all battling and struggling with somewhat similar issues in life and body, feel that loving connection to you too. Don't be afraid to reach out to others on the journey to better health. It may be more than health that saves you...

Jan - just enjoying the journey...

    I have never seen anything like this! Everyone on this site (those that take it seriously anyway) are so friendly and so willing to offer motivation, encouragement, words of wisdom, support and love and no one even knows anyone else. That just proves that though there are people out there that really could care less about someone else, the vast majority of us are all on the same page and all willing to offer help where we can! It i a great feeling to know the world is not all that crazy after all! Great job sharing this information with everyone. You are truly an inspiration!

    You are so right! Right now we are Doing Crazy Love by Frances Chan in small group and we forget that we may feel unloved or unhappy we forget to be happy and grateful for every moment our loving Father has given us, and the gracious sacrifice he made for us! God's love is great!

    It does help knowing there are others out here that are battling the same challenges and also knowing there is a God that loves us and wants to help us. All we have to do is open up and accept both. Thanks for the thoughts Jan.
