Effort matters in everything, love included. Learning to love is purposeful work.
August 15th - love has a purpose
The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.
Any of us can carry the burdens of just one day, it is when we willfully add the burdens of Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down. It isn’t the experience of Today that drives us mad. It is the remorse for something that happened Yesterday; the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Yesterday and Tomorrow are God’s. Leave them with him!
We were never intended to carry heavy burdens. And when you try to carry them all day long, you can’t think of anything else, you can’t get anything else done, you’re no good to anyone else, and then that burden you’re carrying starts to have drastic effects in other areas of your life, which eventually increases the burden you are carrying. It’s a lose, lose situation.
Love is more important than anything else. It is what ties everything completely together
The best use of your life is to love. Loving is a win win situation. When we love, love is returned.
What we give in love, comes back.
A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.
