It All Comes Down To Love!
So this is my command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have loved you. For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. And this great love is demonstrated when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.
God Is Love
Those who are loved by God, let His love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of Him. The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. The light of God’s love shined within us when He sent his matchless Son into the world so that we might live through Him (1 John 4:7-9).
This is love: He loved us long before we loved Him. it was His love, not ours. He proved it by sending His Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.
Delightfully loved ones, if He loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!
LOVE softens traumatic memories. Memories of being loved that we can access or create help us tolerate suffering.
It all comes down to love!
For all my friends who are overcoming being traumatized; there is no shame in being traumatized. God’s Love is so amazing, we need to focus on giving ourselves credit for being resilient enough to survive our adverse experiences along with surviving our difficult childhoods.
Our hidden wounds are healing now that we have the courage to address them with understanding, compassion and skill.
Cheers to viewing this suffering as a challenging experience that called us to acquire new inner strengths and coping skills. That’s part of the healing process in being the courageous, transitional person in our family tree that breaks the cycle of suffering. Hallelujah!
Daughters raised with a father’s love are more likely to feel worthy of love, and less likely to seek love in unhealthy ways.Tweet

Jesus wants to know, “Will you be mine?”
