Have I told you that I am reading this book for this month of July? Well if I did not, let me tell you how I get this. I bought this book when I go to Cagayan de Oro City to renew my professional license id as a teacher at a National Bookstore in Limketkai Mall. I forgot the exact price, what I remember is it cost PHP 200+. Let me show you it's cover:
This book is for women, and the author is "Emilie Barnes" if she is familiar to you, can you let me know what are other books she written?
Let me now proceed to what is this post about, I am now on page 233 of this book, it has a total of 279 pages and it will be few days more to finish reading this. By the way I am reading this every night before I sleep and after I woke up in the morning. This book has a Scripture Reading and a Key Verse, after that there was a reflection from the author about the scripture reading. Let me show you what I read today.
Title: Believe What God Believes About You
Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 13:4-13
Key Verse: 1 Corinthians 13:4-13
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now i know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
It's important to believe that we have value and that we are worthy to give of ourselves. This begins by knowing and accepting what our heavenly Father believes about us.
Till my next post,
