Real Love

Real love knows.

Real love shows.

Real love connects.

Real love rejects.

Real love sees.

Real love frees.

Real love hopes.

Real love envelopes.

Real love believes.

Real love relieves.

Real love restores.

Real love ignores.

Real love looks deeper

Than what’s others show.

Real love grips

And never lets go.

1 Corinthians 13:13 (TPT)

There are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.

Word Drop: Constant

During meditation this morning, I could hear the Lord whisper the word “Constant.” I am a math teacher and the word constant refers to terms in an equation.

Linear Equation Vocabulary

So, my math teacher mind thought of this equation.

Walking with the Lord = Daily Provision + His unfailing love

Some of you will get it, but let me explain it like this:

Lord, You are
Completely
Open
Never
Slow
To correct me, yet
Always
Near
To show me the path to take.

Lord, You have
Captured my heart
Opened my eyes
Now I can see.
Saved me from my enemies
Taken away my fears
Accepted me as Your own
Now I can
Testify, Lord You reign!

Psalm 37:3-7 (TPT)

Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes.
Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure,
feasting on his faithfulness.
Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life,[b]
and he will provide for you what you desire the most.
Give God the right to direct your life,[c]
and as you trust him along the way
you’ll find he pulled it off perfectly!
He will appear as your righteousness,[d]
as sure as the dawning of a new day.
He will manifest as your justice,
as sure and strong as the noonday sun.
Quiet your heart in his presence and pray;
keep hope alive as you long for God to come through for you.
And don’t think for a moment that the wicked in their prosperity
are better off than you.

Inspired by Psalm 32:11

Let today be the day
You let go of strife
Look to the Lord
For your life
Receive His
Joy.

Sing!

Psalm 32:11 (TPT)
So celebrate the goodness of God!
He shows this kindness to everyone who is his.
Go ahead—shout for joy,
all you upright ones who want to please him!

Heart Deposit #1

A deeper measure of love
Is available for the heart
That is willing to yield
To surrender to His will.

There is a deposit set aside
For the heart that is open
To what the Lord has spoken.
A heart that desires to set love in motion.

Psalm 85:7-9 (TLB)

Pour out your love and kindness on us, Lord, and grant us your salvation.

I am listening carefully to all the Lord is saying—for He speaks peace to His people, His saints, if they will only stop their sinning.

Surely His salvation is near to those who reverence Him; our land will be filled with His glory.
