love love love...

This week we have such a great speaker. He is led by God and has rocked our group. His words have rocked me. I am so thankful God created Josh Riebock and that He sent him to speak truth into our lives.

Lately i have been learning so much about loving God and what that means and what that looks like played out in my life. This world needs love. Pure love from God. If all i do in this life is love people well, like God loves, then i have done all i have been created to do. That blows my mind. I have always wondered... "God, what's your will for my life? What am i supposed to do? Why am i created? Why have you chosen me?" The answer is so simple. LOVE. God's will for my life is to love Him and love others. I am supposed to wake up each day and commit to love at all costs to my own comfort. I was created out of God's great love and He chose me before the foundation of the world because He loved me so. I confess, I get so hung up on the simpleness of it all. LOVE. Could it be that easy? And God whispers... "It is...only with my help... love me and love others." My sinful selfish nature keeps me from this simple realization but i see that my life will be a never-ending opportunity to live a life of love. I hope in this love that has been revealed to me.
