Love Like You've Never Been Hurt: Chapters 2 & 3

LOVE NEVER FAILS! I wish I could scream this from the rooftop. This is my mantra and I have tried to live by it. As a matter of fact- I have it hanging on the wall in my office. Every time I face a hard situation, I remember that Love Never Fails! You may not see it immediately, but love will win.

You may think, “But you don’t know what I have been through. That’s impossible!” If you remember from last month’s book, it is possible! When you became born again, you were given the very nature of God. Your old nature is gone and the new nature that is God’s nature is now in you.

Love is large and incredibly patient. love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best of others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. Love never stops loving. - I Corinthians 13:4-9

He has given you His nature, His ability to love, His ability to forgive, and His ability to overcome any and all hurts. You cannot walk in love without forgiveness.

The book explains some of the steps to let go:

  1. Choose love over hurt

  2. Choose to love always

  3. Choose to press forward

  4. Choose to heal your wounds

  5. Choose to keep driving

Is there someone in your life you need to forgive? Is there someone you need to reconnect with? Is there someone you need to love? Why not start today?
