Love God – Love People

How do you know when God is trying to get your attention?

This is how…..

You read a book called The Special Blessings Prayer.

A few days later you read this scripture during your morning quiet time:

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is goodRomans 12:9 (NLT)

That same day you hear this song on the radio during your commute:

Love God Love People

I’ve been running in circles
Jumping the hurdles
Getting caught in that rush of doing so much
I’m feeling kinda worn out

All this checking the boxes
Trying to be flawless
Has me spinning my head, catching my breath
Too afraid to slow down

I tell myself to keep this up
That God wants more than just my love
But I’ve been complicating things
It’s just like me to overthink

Gotta keep it real simple
Keep it real simple
Bring everything right back to ground zero
‘Cause it all comes down to this
Love God and love people
We’re living in a world that keeps breakin’
But if we want to find a way to change it
It all comes down to this
Love God and love people

Oh this is freedom (this is freedom)
The keys to the Kingdom
Knowing life will be found when love can be loud
‘Cause love is what it’s all about

I tell myself to keep this up
That all God wants is just my love
No more complicating things
No more need to overthink

Gotta keep it real simple
Keep it real simple
Bring everything right back to ground zero
‘Cause it all comes down to this
Love God and love people
We’re living in a world that keeps breakin’
But if we want to find a way to change it
It all comes down to this
Love God and love people

Love is patient
Love is kind
Rescues hearts and changes lives
Love is all we need to make things right
Gotta keep it real simple
It’s really so simple, oh!

Gotta keep it real simple
Keep it real simple
Bring everything right back to ground zero (yeah)
‘Cause it all comes down to this
Love God and love people
We’re living in a world that keeps breakin’
But if we want to find a way to change it
It all comes down to this
Love God and love people (woo!)

Keep on loving, keep on loving
Love God and love people
So keep on loving, keep on loving
It’s all about love
It’s how we change the world

Over the past couple of weeks, I have found myself getting annoyed at people & situations that normally would not have phased me. The message from God is crystal clear.


My Treasured Daughter,

I have not called you to fix others, that is my job. You must love Me “with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:5 NRSV. So, when you are dealing with others, I need you to strive to see them as I see them. Second, always apologize (especially if you don’t believe it was your fault). Along with apologizing you must forgive. NEVER, I mean NEVER hold a grudge against anyone. Finally, show My love to ALL people in ALL situations – no exceptions!!

Love,

Abba

  1. I find loving the Father very easy! People i do love but i find it very hard to do so! I’m not the messiah and im still a work in progress, maybe in time i will change but for now i stay clear of the human race!
