​God’s quintessential illustration of LOVE is found throughout the entire bible. There is no clearer image of God’s divine love than Jesus’ blood painted on the cross for us. For me. For you. For every person. John 3:16-18 ERV says, “Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him would not be lost but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world. He did not send him to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through him. People who believe in God’s Son are not judged guilty. But people who do not believe are already judged, because they have not belived in God’s only Son”. 

God’s righteous love is incomparabe. Love is who God is. He wants me to strive after his love; to become more like him through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 5:1-2 ERV says, “You are God’s dear children, so try to be like him. Live a life of love. Love others just as Christ loved us. He gave himsf for us- a sweet-smelling offerings and sacrifice to God.” 

Re-Writing My Love Story

Re-Writing My Love Story

HEY, It’s Emma here! Welcome to my blog.

I’ve always been the girl longing for romance without ever being in a relationship. If you’re reading this now and wondering what my current status is; I’m single. So here am I re-writing my love story. My love story is not about the special  guy in my life (because,quite frankly, there isn’t one). My love story is about re-writing the love story that God has for my life.

This year, 2017, I’ve decided to take on a different approach to LOVE; The true meaning of LOVE from God’s Word. The bible tells  the greatest love story there ever is (far better than Romeo & Juliette). I want to look specifically at 1Corinthians13. The way of love itself. Verses 4-8 ESV say, “Love is patient and kind. Love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoyce at wrongdoing, but rejoyces with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love  never ends”. This is how I want to live out my life in love.

The past couple of years my view on love was what I saw in the world instead of thorough God’s word. I saw friends in their relationships: girlfriends & boyfriends, engagements, marriages, and soon to be new parents. All the while I was alone and single. It seemed to me that everyone I knew was going through a relationship.

Now here is the part where I throw my hands in the air and I suppose you could say I gave up on love altogether.  Alternatively God turns me around to shows me His LOVE. His LOVE is where my blog begins.
