Love/d On A Friday: Take Your 'Love Break'

It's already Friday again where we take a moment to stand back and become conscious of God's love for us. 

Today, here's a little encouragement from Christa Black's book: God Loves Ugly And Love Makes Beautiful that experiencing God's love isn't just a moment of conversion thing or a Friday thing.  It's an everyday thing - and it can be an everyday REALITY.  She says:

'It wasn't learning about [God] that changed me.  I knew countless Bible stories and scriptures from sitting in church services my entire life, but those facts didn't make me trust Him enough to hand over my heart.  I needed an encounter with love. 

It wasn't until I started being loved by God (and continue to get loved every day) that I actually had an overlow of love to then give away.

Being loved by God has changed my life...  1 John 4:19 says that we love Him because He first loved us...  Because of that revelation, I've spent the last few years saying, "Okay, God, my love bucket is empty.  Will you just come and love me?"

It works every time.  And I've fallen deeply in love with Him in the process.'

I totally recommend Christa's book for being encouraging and positive.  She met Jesus and could never be the same again, walking away from all kinds of problems like an eating disorder to really live.  She gives lots of practical advice to help you change the way you think and thereby change the way you live.
