This one's for you.
If you're my friend on Facebook, then this'll be old news to you. But I thought I'd share it, anyways.
From last night:
"a few minutes ago, i finished telling God that i didn't want to give Him my whole heart because i was afraid of being rejected. better to have part of a heart left when you're abandoned than to risk it all and give your entire heart to Him, right?
wrong. soon after i told God that, i read 1 John 4:16-18. 'we know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His Love. God is Love, and all who live in Love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our Love grows more perfect. so we will not be afraid on the day of judgement, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. such Love has no fear, because perfect Love expels all fear. if we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect Love.'"
Anyways, I just thought I'd share that with you.
Stand strong, dear warrior.
