Fulfilling Your Law

Dear God,

You said in Your Word that we have to love one another. And by that I stubbornly ask, "Everyone, Lord?!? No matter what?!?" In all honesty, and because I can talk to You openly as my heavenly Father, I am tempted to ask if You understand what You are asking. But of course, I know You do. After all, You loved me before I even knew You -- and when I still lived for the world, and in the world. How could I even doubt that You know what You are asking of me...?

Just as You have loved me (and I know the reason is NOT based on my actions, but because it is Your gift), -- I also need to love my DS and DD based on Your perfect example. They are blessings from You and worthy of my love and care -- even when their "human nature shines brightly" everyday.

I myself could not count the times I acted like a spoiled two-year-old. How many times have I been like that, Lord...? Only You have seen but NOT once did You count! Father, please fill me with Your unconditional, absolute, and total love, so that I may fulfill and obey Your law. May I always love like You love.

Let no debt remain outstanding,
except the continuing debt to love one another,
for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law.
Romans 13:8


  1. Sometimes it's not easy to love but LOVE must! Wishing you a good day and Thank you for this wonderful reflection! Cathy

  2. Hi Cathy,

    Yes I totally agree. Thankfully, God is such a faithful God, He constantly helps us also by allowing us to love others and be lovable ourselves!

    Have a nice weekend; I sent you something in FB! =)

  3. All the days of our life He knows...and despite all our faults...He loves us!

    Beautiful prayer...
    Have a beautiful Friday,
    Joyce Marie

  4. Hi Joyce,

    Amen to that; let us all be thankful we have a super gracious God.

    Have a beautiful weekend too. =)
