God created love. Love is a divine attribute, or characteristic, of God. The essence of God’s nature, and of a godly nature, is love. Love is more than a feeling. The love of God is a way of being.        1 John 4:7


I’m loving this season that I am in.

Greg and I are building relationships with people in our small church and our small group  in particular.  How wonderful it is to discover what happens when people find themselves colliding on a  journey – and you link arms and say, “Let’s do life together”  It is what the church is all about.  People.  Relationships.  Love.  And so we have in fact ‘linked arms’ and meet together to discuss our pastor’s messages from the Sunday morning before.  It is a refreshing and sweet time.  A season of love.

I am also discovering new blogging buddies and finding words of encouragement and camaraderie from people who have been through similar situations along this journey that I am on – and it’s a wonderful ‘God thing’ that they have been placed in my path.  Their transparency and honest approach to past failure and situations in the church – puts me to shame – as I feel I have had to be careful what I say and what I reveal, even though I too have tried to express my heart clearly and without apology.  These individuals have been a daily encouragement to me and through this wonderful gift of writing – we are discovering that we are not alone – and that God has wonderfully brought us together to share, relate and validate.  It is a season of love.

And then there are the things that are not so well – a family situation that can have no happy ending.  But again – it is an opportunity to see just how God is going to work on our behalf – working behind the scenes to bring about restoration, reconciliation and forgiveness.  He is big on all three of these – and it is exciting to know that He will always be a God that draws us to His very heart – a heart of grace and mercy.  He is always interested in our heart when we deal with difficult situations – and so even in difficult situations – we attempt to keep things right in our own hearts – and not allow bitterness or pride to hinder us from seeing the truth – and we pray that for others as well.  It is an opportunity for God to truly speak and an opportunity to build character and integrity.  It is a remarkable season of love.

I am praying for each one of my readers today – that you will allow whatever situation you find yourself in right now – to be an opportunity for that ‘season of love’ in your own life.  May the love of Jesus be your focal point as you look out on the things that are happening all around you.  And as you focus on that love – I pray something will happen in your own heart and life – a change from within.  May it give you clear perspective as you love others in your world that desperately need it today.

Below is the song from the musical “Rent” – great song about love.  This link will take you to another screen.  Click on ‘view on youtube’ to see and hear the song.  It’s a great one!

Enjoy and God Bless

  1. It is good to meet new friends, Cindy and I’m glad to have met you. I’ll be praying for those you’re working with and your friends.

  2. When the storms are greatest I reach for the arms that surround me. And yet I falter, afraid to walk on water at times, letting fear keep me from the greatest adventures, the greatest times to witness. I want to be consistent, accepting by faith that He is there by my side.
    Thanks for your articles and prayers.

  3. Cindy, I come to read your blog to feel the peace you do. It seeps through your words and touches my heart. My life is so hectic and chaotic that I find myself saying ahhh when I come here to read what you’ve written. Thanks for being a voice of reason for me and for your other readers.

    • Ahh – thanks so much JoJo! You don’t know how encouraging that is to hear – I want to be a voice of reason and peaceful – and it’s great to know that it comes across. We all have ‘stuff’ to deal with but hopefully we can handle ourselves in the correct way first 🙂
