Celebrating Freedom Undeserved Love, Mercy, & Grace
March 23rd marked my 8yrs release anniversary. On this day my rose bush bloomed one of the buds. My husband and me counted 8 additional buds not yet bloomed and so he said that's 8 yrs freedom and one to grow on, lol. That's God's love always giving more hope, more forgiveness, mercy, and grace than what we ask for or deserve.
I pray that we can each live like we were to die tomorrow and most importantly live to please God and to serve His purpose and His plans. I'm the least of the least of these and I am not a great or worthy role model of this. What I lack hopefully I make up in persistence, stubbornness, and faith. Don't let anyone, anything, or any circumstance keep you down! Don't be too harsh on yourself; give yourself love, forgiveness, and patience. I hope to hear from you soon!
Love in Christ, Your Sister Kim Fincher

We're Called to Love
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” 1 John 3a
“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, 'I love God,' yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.” I John 4:7-21
How hard is it to love? Sometimes the hardest person for us to love is ourself and after that is our spouse or best-friend. Those we know the most are the ones we find it hardest to love because we have seen them in their sins; we know all their secrets and their flaws. The greater we love the greater we must forgive, understand, show mercy, forgiveness, and not judge all those fruit of the spirit really come in handy when it comes to loving ourselves and others. Not only is it hard to love the people we are closest to but its even harder to remember to love those who are our brothers and sisters in Christ: missionaries, teachers, pastors, deacons, etc. But yet we must remember to love them too. They need our smile, encouragement, and to know that someone cares. Putting others first is key to love.
