Love Is – Day 8

Kim Speaks Up - Let Love Perfect You

Love’s goal is to complete us to ensure that we lack no good thing.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything,”

–  James 1: 2 -4

Let Love Lead You

‘If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.’1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 Read more

Love Is – Day 6

Kim Speaks Up...Love Is - Day 6

Love is at times letting go…

Love is releasing what is good for God’s best. It is believing no plan you have concocted for you and those you love is superior to His ways. It is reminding your soul to constantly put your hope in Jesus even when you heart is truly aching. It is the ability to grasp onto to Joy for strength when all you want to do is curl up in the fetal position and cry your eyes out. I knew this day would come, I hoped it would be 20 more years from now.

Love is Day 4

Love is staring at your reflection in the mirror and admiring every blemish and scar. It is affirming that it does not define you but bears witness to your experience and growth throughout your life’s history. Love is stroking your wrinkles, love handles, stress marks, and burns and acknowledging that life has happened then appreciating that life has happened. Yes, life has happened. You have lived. You have matured. You have changed. Read more

Love Is – Day 3

LOVE IS SEEING COLOR

Love is seeing color and appreciating every variation of hue – the richness of tones and textures –  the contrast of elements. The traditionalist, the impressionist, the modernist – all illustrate in color. Though the painting may be abstract and messy, it creates the perfect portrait for display. It tells a story worth so much more than a summit of words. Read more

Love holds the power to turn any coward into a hero. It sharpens our vision to see the every day through a lens of beauty. The mundane of the ordinary is transformed into a kaleidoscope of opportunity. The impossible now seems possible. The hard things are worth it. Hope is now tangible. You are determined to press a little further, plunge a little deeper, and climb a little higher because daily Love unfolds from its magical rapture.
