No Impossibilities...

One of my (many) favorite quotes:  "In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities." ~Janos Arany  

I am a being filled with big dreams, created in me by my Father in heaven who has great plans for me.  I am overflowing with an abundance of love, given to me unconditionally, and all that is asked of me in return,  is that I love others as He has loved me. 

I'm pretty good at returning unconditional love to those that love unconditionally (dogs, for instance) and not so good at giving it to those who seem incapable of any kind of love-- especially that of the unconditional variety.  It's not easy to love those who seem unable to love others.  So, I pray:  Lord, help me to always remember, that it is those who are unable to  love, that need it most of all.  In my heart I know that if they cannot love others, it is because they cannot love themselves.  They are damaged, as I was damaged, and they can be made whole, as I was made whole.  Help me learn to love enough to pray for them, that they may seek You, so that You may make them whole, and they may learn to love themselves enough to love others. 

For in the end, I know... it is in my ability to love the unlovable that my heart shall be measured, not in my ability to love those who are so easy to love.  No matter how faithful I am, or how good my works might be, without love, I am nothing.  (1 Corinthians 13:2)  I once believed the meaning of that verse was that if I didn't "have" love, as in if it wasn't "given TO me", that I would be nothing.  But through God's amazing grace, where I was once blind, now I can clearly see... it means that if I have not LOVE to GIVE... I am nothing.

Stop and think, for just a moment, what if we woke up tomorrow in a world where every person committed, even if only for one day-- a mere 24 hours, to love everyone unconditionally.  Can you imagine it?

Ah, neither can I.  It seems... impossible, doesn't it?

No matter how hard it might seem to give love where we feel it is not deserved, we can.  
Where there is love... nothing is impossible... and where there is God... there is love.  

He is in my heart.  Is He in yours? 

You can love.  Unconditionally.

It won't be easy, but it's not impossible. 

After all...

With God you can do all things.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Go into the world this day, with love, and make a difference.
Be the light that shines into the darkness.
Do good deeds, and do them in love.

Are you up for the challenge?  

Complete the mission!  Then come back and let me know:  

Did you make a difference?  Did you let your light shine?  What good deeds did you do in love?  

Comment below, and I'll choose a random winner on Friday.  

Up for grabs:  A little something to shed light in the darkness. ;)

Winner's choice of a Thomas Kinkade nightlight (11 styles available).

While my novels might be a bit dark, maybe even scary, I'm all about shining a light in the darkness. ;)
