Corner #3 Love Hopes All Things
Jesus calls us to a Supernatural Level of Love and Forgiveness that requires us to surrender to His Grace.
“Love that hopes all things” is what Jesus has for us. He never puts us in the “Disappointment” or “Disgust” Room.
Jesus has the ability to work hope & beauty into all things and all people, whether we see it in our lifetime or not.
WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO YOU CHOOSE?
Will you choose to live an extraordinary Life by hoping in all things? or will you choose to live mediocre life by giving up hope in all things?
“In this corner I am going to teach you about a Love that hopes in all things, a Love that brings a supernatural surrender. You will learn to love well, even when you are not loved well in return.”
This is the Love and Forgiveness room, not the disappointment and disgust room. This is where you can be confident in God’s ability to work beauty into each and every person, whether you see it take place in your lifetime or not. Let go of every expectation and look to Jesus alone. It doesn’t matter how anyone else responds to you, or even for the ones who have hurt you to offer up an apology.
YOU CAN’T CONTROL OTHERS, YOU CAN CONTROL HOW YOU RESPOND
You can't control other people, but you can choose how you let it affect you. You are much stronger than you know, and Jesus will give you the tools of Adoration Prayer that will allow you to maintain this perspective no matter what is going around you. Remember this is not a quick fix solution and it will take time and perseverance for the full fruits to come forth in your life.
IN CHALLENGING DAYS, BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS
There will still be challenging days where it will be very difficult to not slip back into old thought patterns and allow the pains of the past to overtake you again. This is the struggle that every human being on the earth must deal with, the battle of the everyday circumstances and practical affairs of life. Challenges are real and will happen, but with God’s help, you will learn to be very intentional about what thoughts and emotions that you give yourself to. This is the kind of love God is calling you to live out in your life. It is a Love that Hopes all things and is not easily shaken.
