This past week my main focus has been on being love. Not focusing only on myself but meditating on others and their needs.

To be or not to be?
It has been my goal to be intentional in my efforts with people. To be present. To be real.
In a society where “get it quick” seems to be the motto, I’ve been focusing on getting it the right way. That means embracing the process and studying the necessary steps to achieving goals.
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 NKJV
The truth is, we have all struggled in some areas of our lives and one of my areas happened to be being intentional. Genuinely showing concern for people and being God’s heart on the earth.
Truth be told, I use to brush through conversations with family members, give quick, haphazard responses to concerns, and bypass their cries for my awareness. I was truthfully selfish. It’s not that I purposefully sought to hurt anyone but truthfully, I had been learning the meaning of love myself.
What God has been showing me as of late is that being empathetic is apart of the human healing process.
True empathy requires that you step outside your own emotions to view things entirely from the perspective of the other person. Author Unknown
If we really want to change the world we must learn to become selfless. Putting our agenda and perceptions to the side and seeking the will of God. Allowing love to heal and cover.
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
I thank God for opportunities where I have been able to do just that.
Here are some forms of love in action!
Although it has been a process in understanding how to be selfless, I trust that through life’s experiences, the Word, and people I will continue to grow in that area.
If you wanna make the world a better place take a look at yourself and made a change. Michael Jackson
