Love Broke Through
When I returned to the place where I had once been, it was different. Or maybe my heart had been changed, coming back with a different one, or rather, one that had been enlivened once again, and prepared better to shine again.
Love had broken through, and now the Lord had given me once again a place to share His love, which I may not have done quite so well before. So now I have been given the opportunity to be there once again.
There are places, people, opportunities in your life where the Lord once had you, and then you left, thinking that that wasn’t the way it was supposed to be, that if only you had done better, been wiser, or simply let His Holy Spirit lead as He can, your impact may have been a bit more everlasting.
I want to assure you that even when you think it didn’t go right, when you thought you had messed up, that surely goodness could have been more good in the place of your footprint…the Lord had made His mark with the light you did share, and it was going to be better because of you.
Love had broken through. When it seems most dark, the small flame which did come forth from your heart did shine; the seed was planted, and life did grow as a result.
We don’t always know what is going on in the minds of those around us, who have been through a lot, seen a lot, and experienced a bit more than at times they could handle. But when we share the love of God, through a simple smile, a caring word, an act that otherwise might go unnoticed, our Lord Jesus Christ uses that to touch lives. And if you get the opportunity to go back, you will see just how much your life did affect them. If you don’t, then let it shine where He has you now.
“…in all these things we are superconquerors, through the One who has loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers, neither what exists nor what is coming, neither powers above nor powers below, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us through the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39, Complete Jewish Bible
By the love of the Father, through the outworking of the Holy Spirit, we have been given a measure of His grace and mercy to share to a dying world, a world which many not even want His love. But there will come a time when they will certainly realize they need it, and Him Above All (another great song as sung by Michael W. Smith.)
Opportunities will come today to share the love of God. Walk with open eyes, an open heart, and think a bit less about yourself, your needs, and give some of His grace and mercy to the one next to you on the job, in the school, or as you shop.
Let the love of God break through. The world needs you. The nations need you now. And so does that one He gives you to show Him.
Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.
