Oh dear! Out of my mouth, my heart speaks!

I was reading in 1 Corintians 13 & I started reading with a yeah, yep know the verse almost reading ahead of the words because it is so familiar- oh no- Holy Spirit jolt- I got an email that I flipped to : as I was waiting to here from a friend it wasn't her but another and when I read the mail I was instantly cranky, what did this person think,why can't they just get organised! They did this last time tools they expect me to just....
What have I just read, what I know so well- word for word that I can arrogantly skip overly but O domt really lnow it- it hasn't made it from my head to my heart or to my mouth. I feel so convicted by this & want to hold up my day, my words, thoughts & actions to this chapter.

Love is definitely others-centered (4-7) and perserveres (8-10). We all know that.
Where I think we all need help is maturing in our love walk(11) and being patient with others and ourselves (12).

This is an exercise alot of people have also seen before. I challenge you to sit quietly before God and truely examine your actions not skip over like I nearly did.

"Here is a little exercise to see if you are a loving person. Put your name in the blanks below and see if you are living what the Scriptures say you should be.

__________ is patient and kind;

__________ does not envy or boast;

__________ is not arrogant or rude.

__________ does not insist on her own way;

__________ is not irritable or resentful;

__________ does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.

__________ bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, [and] endures all things.

__________ perseveres.

Have a blessed day,
