Love Hurts… #encourageoneanother

love hurts“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all of your soul, and with all of your mind. 

This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: “Love your neighbor as yourself… All of the law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments…”

Matthew 22:37-39

My heart is heavy this morning.  Sadness wants to overtake me, fear wants to control me…

I hate worrying about what others think of me… I am a peace maker through and through.

I struggle with emotions of people pleasing, and boundaries..

Just sayin :)

  Hahaha Glad to get that off my chest!!


When I read that scripture about 10 years ago, I knew God was penetrating me heart.  He was speaking softly to my soul with a whisper that only I knew was God’s voice…

He was giving me purpose and direction.

“Love me, Lisa…love me big, and don’t turn back… I will be with you, and I will help you to love others….”

There’s been so many ups and downs since that day…

I have been put to the test in so many different areas of my life..

We have moved all around the world… well at least it feels like it!

Maybe just to Texas, and Arizona…

Life can be so hard, but knowing and believing we here for a reason, that God has a purpose for me, and for you, gives me the strength to lay the pieces of my heart at His feet.

Knowing that all Jesus did was love, love, and love some more gives me the hope and reassurance that I am not crazy… lol

He was mocked, ridiculed, judged and watched by those who couldn’t … or wouldn’t see the beauty of God’s love overflowing from this beautiful man from Galilee…

Living a life of love.

Pouring your heart and your life into God’s greatest commandment is a journey… not a destination…

How I need to be reminded of that today…

So, today, if you too are struggling with feelings of insecurity and heart ache…let’s remember how badly Jesus was treated.  How sad it must have felt to have so much hate thrown at Him…

All He was here for was to love us back to God…

He is my biggest hero ever!

Live in Love,


“Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand..”

Isaiah 41:15

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him..”

John 3:16-17
