Love

Can you love too much? Am I loving too much?

A few weeks ago, I had coffee with a friend and as we sat in our favorite quaint NYC coffee shop, our hearts began to pour. (well more my heart...typical)!! I said - 'You know, I think I love too hard...or too much....' and she responded pretty strongly saying..... 'Woah.... love too much? too hard? no..no... no......'

Even after we chatted, and we'd solved the world three times over.... I STILL questioned my questioning heart about loving. Because thats what I do, I pour until I'm empty - if you're my friend, you know I love you....

I think and think annnnnnd over-think, always! Living in one of the busiest cities in the world, you've gotta travel to get anywhere.... and I find myself being still in the car, on the train or subway just watching (that sounds creepy!). But I find myself watching others pass by, I often think what their stories are - and very often pray right there where I am for these strangers - that I don't know! I can almost hear God speak to me in these moments saying - ' stop thinking and being nosey, and just pray for them...'

Anyhow tonight.... doing my devotions it all slapped me up the face! This happens me over and over - I'll wrestle for weeks and then in a devotion - a quiet time - where its just me and God - he'll answer what I've been wrecking my brain about! Tonight my text was this from 1 Corinthians:

'If I speak Gods word and power - revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain - ' JUMP' and it jumps, but I don't love - I am nothing.'

*Trust Steadily *Hope unswervingly *Love extravangantly The best of these is love......

Amen!!! God clearly said 'Lily, calm down.... pour your love, show MY love....love extravagantly!!'

PLEASE.......Love extravagantly - because without love - we are nothing - You are nothing! So tonight - I echo my buddy in the coffee shop - "no...no...no!!" Don't ever apologize for loving too much that its annoying, love like there's no tomorrow- be extravagant in your love to others - if you know them or not!!
