The I Am Love exercise can give you direction. I know when I committed my life to Love I was left with the question of, "What does that look like?" Well Honey, this is a great place to look.
In 1 Corinthians 13 it starts out "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing."
No one can deny that when love is present in our lives that it is more fulfilling. Like the celebrity that has everything that anyone could want: the house, the fancy cars, the trophy spouse. Yet, they are still not happy. They are still looking for more. Love tends to be missing from their lives. So if we are committed to having it present in our lives and standing in it, we can find out in the next few verses what that looks like.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Sounds pretty good- but how does that apply to me the individual? Here's the trick. Everywhere that you read the word Love or It, replace it with your name and read it out loud.
So here is my declaration of who I am:
Angie is patient, Angie is kind. She does not envy, she does not boast, she is not proud. Angie does not dishonor others, she is not self-seeking, Angie is not easily angered, Angie keeps no record of wrongs. She does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Angie always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Try it for yourself. Now g'on out there and be Love!
