And we’re not only talking about romantic love here! ;)
We’re always thinking about our time, our priorities, our schedule, our life. I’ll see if I can fit you in MY schedule. I’ll see if I have time to spend with you. I’ll see if it’s convenient for me to see you a this place at this time. Otherwise, it’s not happening. Find yourself thinking along these lines?
Jesus calls us to love one another and what is true love? For one, it isn’t selfish. We don’t show love only when it’s convenient. We go out of our way to reach out. We don’t only show love when we have “time to spare”, we make time for it.
People express love in different ways: through words, acts of service, gifts, time and touch. We can show we love someone in so many ways; by giving a compliment, by writing a sweet note (or sending a sweet text) of encouragement, by having coffee with a friend who you haven’t seen for a while, by giving a hug and the list goes on.
Let’s go out of our way to love. Remember, your schedule, your plans, your pride isn’t as important as you think. It’s not always about you… and isn’t that nice? :)

"Everyone has their own Robin - the person that you loved very much, but you cannot be with. And whoever you’ll met, whatever you’ll do, nothing will be like it would be with Robin. "

"I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. "

TO LOVE AT ALL IS TO BE VULNERABLE.
The full version of this quote, taken from Lewis’s book, The Four Loves, reads: “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket — safe, dark, motionless, airless — it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”
Great Quotes From Joyce Meyer’s Book, “The Confident Woman”
“…God’s total chest has some interesting things in it. He works with what the world would reject as useless and would throw away as trash.”
“Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, we will never lose our value in God’s eyes.”
“If God tells you to bring something out into the open or confront a situation from your past, be obedient to Him. He is letting you know this issue is holding you back from His best for you. Always pray about when and how to confront things, especially things that have been buried a long time. Remember, emotional stability comes through learning to live truthfully.”
“You and I don’t have to be like everyone else or keep up with anyone else. Each of us needs to be who God created us to be, and we don’t have to apologize for it. We’re not all alike and we need to find the comfort zone God has established for us to live in, so we can enjoy our lives instead of making ourselves sick with an overload of stress and pressure.”
“Life isn’t fair, but God is. He heals the brokenhearted and their wounds and bruises.”
“Our world has created a false unrealistic image of what women are supposed to look like and act like. But the truth is that every woman was not created by God to be skinny, with a flawless complexion and long flowing hair. Not every woman was intended to juggle a career as well as all of the other duties of being a wife, mother, citizen, and daughter. Single women should not be made to feel they are missing something because they are not married. Married women should not be made to feel they must have a career to be complete. We must have the freedom to be our individual selves.”
“I believe confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do — and not worrying over what you can’t do. A confident person is open to learning, because she knows that her confidence allows her to walk through life’s doorways, eager to discover what waits on the other side. She knows that every new unknown is a chance to learn more about herself and unleash her abilities.”
“Sometime we get so addicted to murmuring about the past and blaming the past for everything that we miss our whole future. You’re not going to enjoy your future, and you’re not going to enjoy your right now, if all you can do is be guilty and ashamed and afraid of your past.”
“Remember God is not surprised by your inabilities, your imperfections, or your faults. He has always known everything about you that you are just now finding out, and he chose you on purpose for himself.”
“Get up everyday, love God, and do your best. He will do the rest!”
“We don’t have to run from anything; we can confront all things in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is time to stop running, to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.”
“…If we look to God for our approval, we will never experience the pain of withdrawal because we have a constant, steady flow of his love and acceptance.”
“Grace is God’s power coming to us free of charge to help us do with ease what we could never accomplish on our own.”
We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present.
10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS FOR YOUNG WOMEN
1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.
2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.
3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.
4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.
5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.
6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.
7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.
8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.
9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.
10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.
Life is full of things that try to push us down. We all face disappointments and setbacks. Maybe you got some bad news concerning your health or maybe a relationship didn’t work out. That was a setback. It’s easy to get discouraged or lose your enthusiasm or even be tempted to just settle where you are. But if we’re going to see God’s best, we have to have a “bounce back” mentality. That means when you get knocked down, you don’t stay down. You get back up again. You have to know that every time adversity comes against you, it’s a setup for a comeback!
Remember, as a believer, the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives on the inside of you. There is no challenge too difficult, no obstacle too high, no sickness, no disappointment, no person, nothing that can keep you from your God-given destiny. If you stay in faith, then God will turn what was meant to be a stumbling block into a stepping stone, and you’ll move forward as a champion full of faith and victory!
"Be encouraged today because no matter what is happening in your life right now, you have a chance for a new beginning. Choose today to leave the old behind — old behaviors, old thinking, old words — and embrace the new by faith because this is your day to experience the new life that He has prepared for you! "
