I have only this one life. The moment will come when it is too late to
do anything about what I have needed to do. Then it is too late, and
nothing will bring the opportunity again. The chance came only once. I
should love with His love, and then all things are possible. Even the
most difficult thing becomes easier when offered with His love. Nothing
is impossible with Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice of heart brings the
Who do I
have an opportunity to love with His love, and have hesitated? Is it
someone who has hurt or offended me? I can't love with His love if I
can't forgive. Perhaps I don't even call it unforgiveness. I call it
hurt or rejection. If it eats me up, I haven't forgiven. The pain has
become my obsession instead of God. It is only in Him that I experience
perfect peace. I choose to let it go, and let God heal my heart.
Nothing is too difficult in Him. If I want to be His hands and His
feet, then I must seek His heart and His mind. And in truly seeking, and
truly surrendering, the hardness of a hurting heart will dissolve into
pliable flesh in His hands.
An opportunity will come
that will not come again. I will make the most of what I am offered.
Life is short, but His Spirit is so willing. In surrender and in the
giving myself away, I will receive more than I ever thought possible.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down,
shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with
the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38, NIV).
