So apparently today is valentine and I’m very excited to wake up to no message, okay I actually got one from MTN. LOL
I’m not here to make noise but to share something I learnt today,
“If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.”
1 Corinthians 13:3-10 MSG
This was the first scripture that popped up on my screen when I woke up today. It reminded me that today is not just a day of celebration for the date and dated but for everyone. That God is love and I’m god ( a daughter of love), that today I can reach out to everyone around me and let them know that I love them, that they are chosen, that they are forgiven and that they are redeemed.
So today, whether you get a message from boo or bae or from MTN warning you that you are running out of data I want you to know that you don’t need people to feel loved, you need God to know that you are loved, people can only value and celebrate you when you become valuable but God, he loves you even when you are in the haze of self discovery.
So I unlocked my phone and sent messages to my family, friends and loved ones. Silver or gold I do not have right now but love, it dwells in me and I am ready to share, I am a giver of Love.
I am kind, I am sweet and I am lovely and I want you to think the same of yourself, encourage yourself you might not celebrate the next val alone so embrace today, embrace everyday! Show yourself some love, reach out to your friends. Remind them that they are loved you never can tell who needs it the most.
I love you ❤️
