"The prompt is love".....she went there, Yes. She. Did.  Not sure why I'm surprised. He has been going there all week. Actually, He's been going there since 2011, September it was. The crack in the foundation of all that was opened up and this verse, this is what He gave me.  I had no idea......I was going to learn how to love.  And love hard.  And I'm not sorry, no.

4 Love is patient....when the waiting seems like it will never end
love is kind....blessings, not curse to enemies made grace
It does not envy...because this is what He has for you
it does not boast...when we have days of sunshine
it is not proud....because humility is such beauty
5 It does not dishonor others.....words give life or words give death, use them wisely 
it is not self-seeking...even when you want so desperately to be known 
it is not easily angered...when you get knocked down yet again
it keeps no record of practices God's forgiveness
6 Love does not delight in evil....treating others how they want to be treated 
but rejoices with the smiles when it can speak His affirmation 
7 It always is fiercely loyal to the heart 
always trusts...because He said so
always hopes....because He never fails 
always perseveres......because I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
8 Love never fails.....because we can never be separated from His love 

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I have learned that faith comes from believing in Him long after things looked like they were going to happen in my own timing.  I have learned to hope because I have decided that His words are true no matter how things may seem.  And I have learned the high cost of loving in the hardest of circumstance.  It's a love that breaks down walls, busts off the chains that have held me to something smaller than what He wants for me.  I have watched it change lives and mend long broken places.  I have watched it change me and perhaps that is the most amazing miracle yet.  Thankful.


  1. Thanks for sharing this, Kimberly. I must have missed this last week. I guess sometimes a person reads a post at exactly a time when God knows they need it. :) Longing for that "love that breaks down walls, busts off the chains that have held me to something smaller than what He wants for me." Beautiful words.

    1. Yes I am always amazed at how timely His words are :) I felt the same visiting your space today. I am reminded that there is such beauty in the longing. It makes the end so very precious. Praying that for both of us friend.
