The Celebration

A few years ago, I attended a christian conference and one of the guest speakers said something that stuck with me since then and the Lord has laid it on my heart to share with you today.

"Go where you are celebrated and not just tolerated"
Y'all don't hear me!

Have you ever seen the reception a child gives when the parent comes home after being away from them all day? The child is running and screaming with glee, arms outstretched and smiling from ear to ear. Your mate should be that excited, your best friend should be that excited, wherever you go and people claim to love you there, your reception should be similar. Far too often you see people in relationships that are less than celebratory; they are downright unhappy. If you are not feeling the love, then don't get comfortable there, keep it moving; that place is not for you.

Where's your celebration? You should settle for nothing less!!

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, 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. 8 Love never fails.

Have a blessed week.
