Walking in God’s Favor: Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 20:27 NIV
We love others better, when we love God first
Faithful stewards have discovered in their spiritual journey that God’s nature is love. That He gives each of you the freedom to discover his loving nature for yourself. The Creator freely gives you opportunities to experience His divine love. Faithful stewards understand that He only wants what is best for your good and His glory.
The Creator has a purpose for your life and He is calling you to a higher level of stewardship. I love what the book of Jeremiah says in chapter 29 verse 11. “I know the plan I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans for your hope and a future”. Wow! Now that is the kind of God I choose to worship. I know He has everything under control. When you learn to let go and let God….that’s when things start happening.
A happy marriage requires falling in love over and over again with the same person
I clearly remember when I began the process of looking for a life partner. I prayed that the woman who I planned to marry would be someone who truly loved God. That she would be someone I could spiritually connect with. It was very important to me that we shared our love for God with one another. I was raised in a home where I observed my parents praying to God with one another, worshiping God with one another, and trusting in God with one another. That seemed to be high priority in their relationship.
I am so thankful for God bringing Ardella into my life. Every area I have allowed Ardella to touch in my life has turned to gold. I have prospered in my spiritual life, family life, professional life and financial life. Over the years God has blessed our marriage, our family, and our lives as we continue to grow more in love with Him as well as each other.
God loves you everyday
Faithful stewards have learned to make intimacy with God their highest priority. God is faithful. He loves you with an unending love. There are no boundaries to God’s love for each of you.
Prayer of Blessing: Lord, Thank You for loving us without limits.
