Loving God, Loving Yourself, Loving Others

By: Joyce Meyer

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 in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV) ___________________________________ Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8 ___________________________________ As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
John 13:34 ___________________________________
If we don’t have a revelation of God’s love for us personally, we will never truly love ourselves, and neither can we really and truly love others. Let’s explore the cycle of love.
1. Replace the word Love in 1 Cor. 13 with God or Father. Ask Him a revelation of this scripture. Now describe in your own words how God feels about you.
2. In light of that passage, do you feel loved? How do yo…

Little Miss Perfect

By Lisa Whelchel
How a Former Child Star Broke the Cycle of People Pleasing and Found Her Authentic Self ______________________________________________
I was born a people pleaser  I came out of the womb pleasing. My mom tells a story about when I was 18 months old and had several styles in one of my eyes. She took me to the doctor and he had to use a needle to pop them, one by one. Not only did I cry, I smiled. It’s a very weird indication from early on that I intuitively knew I needed to be happy for everyone. All “negative” emotions needed to stay suppressed.
I was always strongly encouraged to be and do my best. So it became my number one goal to be the perfect child. I adored my mother and wanted her approval and pleasure. Having that connection was the most important thing, it was terrifying to be at odds or lose that strong connection, so I worked very hard to stay on that narrow road of perfection.
I experienced a connection with my mom as long as I did what was expected of me…

Today's Scripture: Love & More

.....he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know... God [to perceive and recognize and get a clearer knowledge of Him].

Freedom to Be Ourselves

By Joyce Meyer
Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, my Help and my God.
                                                                                                           Psalm 42:5


Ask twenty-first century women, “How do you feel about yourself?” and many will confess, “I hate myself.” Or perhaps their opinion of themselves is not that severe, but they will admit they really don’t like themselves. Our world has created a false, unrealistic image of what women are supposed to look like and act like. But the truth is that every woman was not created by God to be skinny, with a flawless complexion and long flowing hair. Not every woman was intended to juggle a career as well as all of the other duties of being a wife, mother, citizen, and daughter. Single women should not be made to feel they are missing something because they are not married. Ma…
