Love Dare - Dare 19 Love is Impossible

Day 19: Love is impossible
Let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
—1 John 4:7

Look back over the dares from previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you? Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love? Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to settle your eternal destination.

I was going to restart because there was such a long pause between. Instead I will continue on. I may reference the other day sin other blogs, mix dares together, and even do two at a time (one current, one from the past 18). I am not starting over. I looked back over the things that have happened in the past few months. Some could say that there have been no changes and others would say all the changes in the world have been made. No ones opinion matters though. What someone else would do if they were in your shoes matters even less.

I needed God in my heart. Love is impossible without Him. I was placed in a situation of either forgiving and loving or holding a grudge. I was given this marriage for a reason, and in tough times that reason is even more clear. I have to reach for the blessings of the man God placed in my life instead of reaching for all the wrong. Love first takes loving yourself and ends with forgiveness.
