Finding LOVE where you're at

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with 3:16 team REALTY ~ Locally-owned Frisco TX Real Estate Co. 9001154

People find LOVE where they are at. Some people find LOVE at their lowest point in life. Some people at their peak.

My first encounter with LOVE was when I was little girl in 1st and 2nd Grde. I didn't have much exposure to LOVE at that point.

Then at 17, I encountered a frightening experience. As I was cycling to my tutor's house, a flasher flashed at me while he was on the motorcycle. I screamed and peddled as fast as I could to get away. I found myself shaken at my tutor's home. His wife told me about LOVE. Then, life moved on.

At 28, I hit the lowest point in my life. I had my personal home I couldn't sell. It was a pride buster. I was in a chain reaction car wreck by an 18-wheeler and that incident left me a messed up back. I could no longer run long distance. Couple of weeks later, my left eye was attacked by some bacteria eating my kornea. I was prepared to go blind in one eye. Could life get any worse?

Then, LOVE found me where I'm at.

I read more about LOVE in a book called the Purpose Drive Life by Rick Warren. Life began to have a much more bigger purpose than just to exist.

Life has never been the same again.

I hope you will find LOVE too where you are at.

 

Scripture of the Week:

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love

1 John 4:8

Sometimes you find love where you least expect it.  You have to be open to it when it happens.

The Purpose Driven Life is a life-changer--I dust off my copy every now and then.  Life becomes more meaningful when we overcome the challenges placed before us.

Hi Loreena, it is sometimes hard to love where we are but it may well be that where we are is where we need to be to fulfill God's plan for our lives.

NICE post, sister... we all have things to go through in life, don't we??

I am glad you looked to the Creator for your perspectives on what you were going through, rather than the world system and other things that would take you away from the knowledge of God and His kingdom in Jesus our Messiah.....

I am featuring this post in,"Christianity and Real Estate".
