If you’ve stopped feeling love, the first step is to remember what it is like to act with love and then do it. The Bible has the perfect verse to keep handy in these times.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galations 6:9)
I know I go through waves of not “feeling” like loving some of the people around me. Can you relate? Are you suppose to be loving that person? Spouse? Parent? Child? Sibling?
Don’t skip over this as you grow in your walk with God! I know it’s hard, but I bet God is putting someone on your heart who applies…”we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”. The more we are learning, getting closer to God, the more He will give us chances to be the loving people we are meant to be.
The challenge today is to pray that God will help you be more loving to whoever He put on your heart. Don’t expect a response from them. Don’t do it because you want anything reciprocated. Do it because God does it for us every day. When we are unlovable, He still loves us. Our goal is to be the best “lovers” of God and His people that we can be. Sometimes that means humbling ourselves in relationships and becoming better at loving.
Pray for your relationship with God to grow. It will! As that happens, you will automatically see those relationships around you change.
What I learned today…I can’t let a busy lifestyle rob me of growing in my relationships. Life is all about relationships.
