Day 12: Love
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Dear God, my Lord, and my Savior, thank you for your unfailing Love!
You are Love! You are patient and you are kind!
Give me a pure heart, oh God and fill it with your great Love.
Help me not to envy, boast or proud;
Lead me not looking to my own interests but to value others above myself;
Teach me not to anger easily nor keep record of wrongs;
Grant me the abilities of rejoicing with the truth and resisting evil.
You are Love, Lord — always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere!
Fill me up with Love, Father God. Love never fails.
I look to You and Praise You — my Lord, my Savior!
How will Jesus show up in my day today?
Do I have the eyes and ears to see and hear the wonders of his love and mercy?
How will I experience his grace? Will I see something miraculous? Something hope-filled that will transform me?
