There is someone out there that you love.
Whether that be in a romantic way, familial, or brotherly.
There is someone, who you will sacrifice for every day. A person you are willing to do anything for just because they are who they are.
Here are a few example you might relate to:
-A child who studies really hard day and night because he or she loves his or her parents.
-A girlfriend who drives hours to surprise her boyfriend.
-A mother who doesn’t sleep in to make sure her children’s clothes are ironed.
-A friend who calls you even though they are having such a busy day
Love makes us do crazy stuff. Crazy awesome stuff.
Love is the energy. Selfless giving fuels us.
Last night, I thought a lot about love. I thought about how easy it was for me to understand what it means to do things out of love for those in my life I care about.
Like my parents, my cousins, or siblings…
Then I related this thought to Jesus.
And everything got a little simpler.
Do everything for the love of God.
Jesus is our Lord. Jesus is our best friend. Jesus is our father.
Yet, sometimes we forget we can do everything because we love Him.
If we change our intention, we will change our mindset.
By doing this, I can assure you motivation will take you over.
A great book on this topic is the book, The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence.
Highly recommend, it is also super short so it can be read pretty quickly.
In this small book, Brother Lawrence talks about falling in love with God’s Presence and having it take over your life.
By constantly being aware of God’s love, the world changes.
The darkness may still be around us, but we can more easily focus on the light.
This week let us focus on loving God the way we love the important people in our lives.
If we do this, we can do the impossible.
