Ah, yes! Perfect love. What is perfect love, really?
The bad and toxic behavior we have in our life is usually rooted in fear. It could be rejection, missing out, dying, failure, safety, loss of control, not knowing, and so on.
I operated out of fear. It controlled my life and kept me buried in insecurity. Once I discovered perfect love casts out fear, I quickly began my work to figure out how I could love more.
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
But instead, I failed more. So I did more to love and I failed again.
Until I realized my love would never be perfect. But you know whose is?
The unconditional love of Jesus! That's right. I was so focused on me, that I couldn't see the love that God was pouring on me is what would really give me the strength to become a better me.
Ladies, have you ever had a good man? Like a really good man? His love for you is so crazy it makes you become better and do better as a reaction because you appreciate him so much. That’s what God’s love is like, except even better and unfailing.
So, if you’re like me, attempting to get everything right, stop while you’re ahead. Like, really stop. It’s a waste of time.
Refocus your eyes. Put them back where they belong. Everything else will flow from there, have no worries.
Keep your crown up,
