Let LOVE Be Your Guide

Ephesians 5:2
Let love be your guide. Christ loved us and offered his life for us as a sacrifice that pleases God.

I've been studying this verse intensely lately.  When I sit and think of all Christ endured for me I can't help, but to be filled with great love.  The kind of love that's so powerful it leaves you in tears of joy.  He loves me so much that he gave up his life for me.  He ask that we love him with our entire heart, mind and soul.  He even asks us to love others as we love ourselves.  This is the path He has lead me to for the past three years.  I've always been one to help others, but today it is a totally different path.  I wish to thank Jesus Christ for all he's done for me by uplifting any and all who need it.  Sometimes the acts are big and sometimes they are small.  But each time they are from my heart and in honor of our Savior.  Ephesians 5:2 says "Let love be your guide."  Each day I strive to do just that.  A smile to a stranger, a hug to my princess, encouraging words to my nephew, a card to a being battling cancer, an anonymous act of kindness.  He was beaten, even tortured for me and all he asks is that I live my life as he lives his.  This I can do.  This I will do for my Father who's only request is that I let LOVE be my guide.

What does this verse say to you?  What thoughts come to your heart & mind?

Today I Am Grateful For:

*Every single blessing
*His love & mercy
*The right to share what's in my heart
*My sight, hearing and ability to speak
*For new possibilities


  1. This is a beautifully powerful verse, and the idea is growing globally each day. Love is spreading and becoming more of the norm, I think; we might not see it at first glance, but I believe what Jesus wished is coming to life in ways never before imagined by man.

    You ARE love, Tabitha, and for that, I am so grateful.

    Joy, peace and eternal goodness to you!

  2. Wouldn't the world be a nicer place if letting love be your guide was more universal? It is an exalted thought!

  3. with love...true love...you give more than just what you can spare...you give it all.

  4. That's awesome Tabitha!

  5. Hi Tabitha!

  6. To me this verse is about endurance. To love in spite of evil/petty/immature circumstances is not easy, but as you stated Christ was laughed at and spit on - tortured for us.

    If he can endure that with love. We can endure anything.

  7. What a beautiful post as usual Tabitha! If everyone let love be their guide we would live in a glorious world wouldn't we? I'm glad that there are people like you who set amazing examples for the rest of us.



  8. Wonderful...yes...let love be our guide. Lately this has proven to be so important!


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
