There are times that we all experience emotional and physical pain.
These experiences can last a moment or they can linger. Pay attention to your body when it tells you something is wrong. Take a stand against fear in these situations. Do not let fear generate more emotional pain. Fear creates more tension and therefore increases our physical pain.
Honor the pain and turn to God for healing. Breathe in, and you will feel relaxed and refreshed. Focus on each part of your body to allow the tension to evaporate.
You need to completely trust in God’s healing power of love. Celebrate feeling alive and free of pain.
We all need to attempt to express love in everything we do.
Love drives out fear.
It can be a kind or considerate gesture. It can be a supportive or thoughtful word. Love can be demonstrated in prayer.
Allow your Christ nature to express itself at all times through your behavior, especially when parenting. You should expect nothing in return, knowing that expressing love is a reward in itself.
Every moment of every day should be a celebration of love.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John13:35
