How To Love In Action & Reality: Devotional 1 John 3:16-18

Love is active.

I am a words of affirmation person--but I definitely need to see active love for me too.

God wants us to affirm with words our love for Him and then He wants to see our actions come into alignment with what we speak to Him.

I know that active sacrifice to show others love can take time, effort, energy, and emotion.

I have come to realize that when I am walking in my gifts and working to be empowered by The Holy Spirit, I can do far more than I expected.

So how do we empower ourselves by The Holy Spirit?  How do we sustain our energy so that we can provide for ourselves and others in their time of need?  How do we advocate for truth and justice without massive emotional exhaustion?

The answer is spiritual and physical exercise. The answer is feeding ourselves spiritual food and healthy food from God's creation. The answer is working on our thought life (mindset) using the power of God's word spoken out-loud.

No one can pour from an empty cup. And I find far to many Christian women pour themselves out beyond what is healthy or what God wants them to do.

*If you are ready to know more and to do more in a healthy and positive way--then let's talk today @ burstingwithblessings@virg.org . Christian Life coaching is the answer to more than you know.

Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for this day.  Thank You for Your love, sacrifice, and healing.

Lord please lead each person that reads this to the healing tools they need to have true life Shalom--balance and peace in all areas.

Lord please grant us perseverance to exercise in all areas so that we can grow strong and empowered to do all that You have called us to do.

We thank You and praise You because You want us to have health, healing, blessings, and to be a blessing in this life.

We sing praises to Your name, Amen.
