Love is not explainable
in human terms
It's only what Christ endured
on a cruel and rugged cross

How can you define something so great?
Something so beautiful and powerful
put inside every heart and mind
Only as a glimpse of our Father

Love is patient and kind
Love is what grows on the inside 
It gives you the strength to hang on
When everything else says, "give up"

Its what gives you an unexplainable desire
To hold an orphan child in China as if she were your own
Or to die for an Indian in a remote village
Who's never heard the name of Jesus--it puts others first

Love is ready and willing to believe the best of your brother
To back down and stay humble
Just as our Heavenly Father did for us,
He is the ultimate example

Love gives you patience
You never thought you'd have
Until you realize
What patience Christ had with you

Love gets you through hard times
Through testing and trials alike
All because you know it was His love
That got you through times past

Love was a gift
It is here and now, and will be forever, 
It never ends, and it belongs to each of us
Because of what He did 

I may not put it into words
But I can feel its warmth
I know its there, I believe it's there
The proof is in the Word

Until that day, Trust in Him
Hope for, and believe the best in every situation
Move mountains and give all you have 
But extravagantly Love; for without it we are nothing
1 Cor. 13



I'm just trying to understand!!

But I don't think God wants me to understand or something.....



[Gracious Uncertainty]

This is a devotional from My Utmost for His Highest, that puts life and all its problems in a perfect perspective, it means a lot to me to read this right now...but I think everyone needs to hear it... So I'm posting it, enjoy!!

* "...it has not yet been revealed what we shall be..." (1 Jn. 3:2)*

Our natural inclination is to be so precise-trying always to forecast accurately what will happen next-- that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing. We think that we must reach some predetermined goal, bu that is not the nature of the spiritual life. The nature of the spiritual life is that we are certain in our uncertainty. Consequently, we do not put down roots. Our common sense says, "well what if I were in that circumstance?" We cannot presume to see ourselves in any circumstance in which we have never been.

Certainty is the mark of the commonsense life-- gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life. to be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, not knowing what tomorrow may bring. This is generally expressed with a sigh of sadness, but it should be an expression of breathless expectation. We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. As soon as we abandon ourselves to God and do the task He has placed closest to us, He begins to fill our lives with surprises. when we become simply a promoter or a defender of a particular belief, something within us dies. That is not believing God-- it is only believing our belief about him. Jesus said, "...unless you...become as little children..." (Matt. 18:3). The spiritual life is the life of a child. We are not uncertain of God, just uncertain of what He is going to do next. If our certainty is only in our beliefs, we develop a sense of self righteousness, become overly critical, and are limited by the view that our beliefs are complete and settled. But when we have the right relationship with God, life is full of spontaneous, joyful uncertainty and expectancy. Jesus said, "...believe also in Me." (Jn 14:1) not, "Believe certain things about Me." Leave everything to Him and it will be gloriously and graciously uncertain how He will come in-- but you can be certain that He will come. Remain faithful to Him.
