And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him (1 John 3:19).
Let’s say that verse like this: And by expressing love we know that we are of the Word of God, and our hearts will be satisfied as we stand before God in our prayers. There’s no feeling quite as good as a satisfied heart. Knowing I have pleased God gives me far more pleasure than anything else I can think of. The Word of God is all about love: God’s love, our love. God is made out of love, and if we are made in His image, then so are we. To let love shine out of us lights our paths to people who need our love.
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5).
It’s the love of God that prompts us to love one another, and He has poured it into us to the point of overflowing.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
