You may be feeling like this rock or maybe you know someone that does. Life has dealt you a blow that just left you feeling dumped on or beaten up by the waves. From where you are on the rock, you can’t see anything good coming out of what is going on. Stand firm on what you know is true about God, not the circumstance, I’m sending out some rescuers.
We all know people that need help in their situations. We know when we are going through hard times it is difficult to get our focus back on where it needs to be. We need someone to come along the side of us and speak truth to us and that truth is love.
Love is how we build each other up. Love is the foundation of forgiveness. Not just any love but God’s love. The Agape Love of God that is not connected to any emotions. The love we think how on Earth am I to love like that? It is blind to any wrong that is done to us?
When we put the Agape filter on then can we see what looks like smooth sailing. It is this love that encourages it to grow in times of adversity. Through Agape are we able to forgive those that have hurt us.
As we grow in Agape we also start growing in the other areas of love such as joy, peace, patience… As we grow in love we need to pour some of the love into to those around us that are hurting so they can get focused on love and back to building up their love so they can share it with someone else.
