Love Debt πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’ž

"Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy." - Romans

"Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." - Romans 13:10

"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law." - Romans 13:8

February   is tagged season of love   and valentine   posters   and   deals   are the all over the place.
How do we perceive  LOVE.
I see the faces around me
The wear a smile
But their eyes are sad
They have  been misunderstood
They have been   misinterpreted
Their cry for love
Led them to this place
Their desire  was to be   loved
Their intention   was to help a friend ,  a mother and a child or simply   themselves
But their activities   well we aren't   so sure
They took steps in the wrong direction
I suppose
They did things in their own  understanding
The society..... you and I
We didn't understand   them
We kept them under lock and key
And we labeled   them dangerous
We submitted   them to conditions
That will give them time to think
Time to believe   what we all believe
I don't defend  those you may be condemning
just like you they need to be loved
 We are in His image ...
In his likeness
Yet  we are individuals   on different   journeys
I believe   God created us all unique
We all need love and understanding
And when led by His word we can pay the love debt we owe to one another
Love your neighbor

journey through genesis

Genesis 23
#Hint: For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11, AMP).

Sarah dies at age 127 and Abraham needs a plot of land for her burial.  He is a foreigner in the land. Yet all the people give him the liberty to choose whichever land he wants at no cost. That's FAVOUR!

God blesses his people with favour; uncommon Favour.  You get help when you do not even need it. You get so many things free of charge. Things that others tire for, he gives you on a silver platter. He clears your path. He paves the way for you. He fills every valley on your path and levels every mountain.  He simply keeps you smiling! Even in the midst of the storm, you smile! His only requirement is that you walk aright with him.  Walk aright with God and trust him with your life; then he will provide for you, even while you are asleep.  (Psalm 127:2, GNB)

May God's favour locate you in this month of February, as you walk aright with Him.
#Have a Favour-filled February! #Blessings!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€


I was out on the streets..And the nights were cold...
Till I was found by a loving man one day.
Taking me off the streets, he replaced my torn, raggy clothing with a white robe after he had washed me clean. And the warmth of His embrace shielded off the cold. He seemed to know me and was overjoyed he had found me. It was a great feast the day He brought me home.
Day after day, I grew, loving him and knowing him more..
Never had I seen such riches and my feeble mind could not comprehend such wealth. There was joy in abundance, love was the language he spoke. He gave me much and adorned me with what I knew I didn't deserve. Yet, it was his delight doing so. He taught me to speak his language and I cherished dearly the time we would spend in conversation.
But I ran...
Yes, I ran.
Far away from his house..
And nothing could explain the pain in my heart afterwards.
Yes, I did love His company.
And I did love it in his house but after I thought I had gained much, I ran back to the streets..
Immature, I was, and this cost me much.
Yet I ran, back to where I was before He came along. Cuz I had foolishly thought i was missing out on some adventure there. Instead, it was the cold rain that welcomed me...This time, worse than before.
I saw a figure amidst the showers
A man's form in the rain
When the lightening introduced the thunder, I saw clearly. That it was him.
He came through the rain
To rescue me again..
For he knew that I would soon feel the pain of running from his sheltering arms.
With shame, I ran towards him and fell at his feet.
But then he touched my shoulder
And raised me to my feet.
Then as I gazed at his face,
Such radiance I had never seen before surrounded him.
And peace seemed to flood my soul.
His love reached out to me,
Yes, I felt His warm embrace
And something deep within me told me that that was my place.
Then I knew-
He is Emmanuel,
The LORD who is with me.
