Love Wins

Copyright 2014 Diana Rasmussen

Stock with love

Always gonna be the haters
those who point and laugh
Bullies want to put you down
to get you to doubt
Who I am on the inside
Is more than you see on the outside
Even when I fall,
I’ll rise 7 times stronger
You can’t keep me down, I’ll last longer
Hate may fight in the night
But in the end, love wins
They have hearts of stone, cold as ice
They beat you down with
Angry words that cut like knives
they are all just lies
Who I am on the inside
Is more than you see on the outside
Even when I fall,
I’ll rise 7 times stronger
You can’t keep me down, I’ll last longer
Hate may fight in the night
But in the end, love wins
I am perfect in God’s eyes
Chosen, marked, and loved
That’s all that I need
it’s good enough for me
Love wins

 

 

GOD’S WORD FOR YOU:

The Way of Love

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.

If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

(1 Corinthians 13:1-7 The Message (MSG))

 

MY PRAYER FOR YOU:

Dear Lord,

Thank you for reminding us today that Love Wins!  Despite all the trials, tribulations, and sandpaper people we run into – love wins.  Thank you Lord that your love is the greatest force ever created in the universe.  Help us to walk in love towards You. Let us love our neighbors as we love ourselves. And let us love ourselves as You love us, in Jesus Name.
