"Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD." ~ There have always been blessings for those who walk in obedience to His law, and curses for those who do not.

The tactic of the enemy is to cast doubt upon the Word of YHVH. "Yea, hath God said?" Did He really mean THAT? Surely it doesn't apply to YOU.

In the Garden of Eden, they blew it. In the Millennium, what is the first thing God will do? "He will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem." (Isaiah 2)

Time is short. It's time to come into obedience to the covenant we entered into with God, sealed by the blood of His Son Yeshua/Jesus.

I can love.

I can love the person who is difficult to love. How can I do that? Because love doesn't depend on how I feel. Love is a decision I make, to prefer another above myself, to be like my Father Who defines love.

If I do not love when someone is rude, or critical, or churlish, then my love is conditional, and is not like His. True love shines brightest when it is hardest to love.

Love bears and forebears. Love forgives. Love breaks down the barriers that pride builds. Love changes things, changes people.

I can love others who are difficult to love because... HE loves me.

Stopping in to update! My foot's been in a cast for about three months now. We will be going in to have it removed this week or next, then will begin rehabilitation.

It's been difficult for this mom of eight, hobbling about on crutches or in a wheelchair, but God has been so good. My family has blessed me, especially my older girls, pitching in and doing the things Mom could no longer do. But I am certainly ready to be able to walk again.
