I have spent an entire life time reading and listening to books and tapes to improve my life. Self-Help had become a lifestyle since childhood. Abuse had left me confused and traumatized. Although I knew what to do; I was not able to convert the information into practical steps of action. It seemed as though my spirit and mind were on different paths.

What happened next have changed my spirit, soul and body. I had a supernatural encounter with Love: God. My life has since changed forever. Let me share the power of love with you (smile). See for yourself if, indeed, this makes sense.

"Choose Love. It looks good on you."(tm)

I can remember the first time I heard these words in my spirit. God was telling me to choose love on purpose; to be empowered in all the areas of my life. He wants you to choose love as well. Let's see why.

Galatians 5: 22-23 says it this way:

22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Have you ever wondered what makes love so powerful? Why choose Love? What not faith or hope? Consider the Fruit of the Spirit, which is Love. Develop this Fruit and the rest of your life will align with God's will.

Choose Love and be Empowered to live your best life in God.

1. Love empowers you to overcome obstacles; and anything related to abuse, fear, torment and rejection.

2. Joy is when love empowers you to celebrate and enjoy your life no matter what state you are in.

3. Peace is when love empowers you to rest and think on the answer based on God's Word and Promises.

4. Patience is when love empowers you to wait,consider, and then respond in a cool calm manner; or simply take action and walk away.

5. . Kindness is when love empowers you to speak the word only; in truth to warn or encourage and strengthen.

6. Goodness is when love empowers you to make decisions based on what is fair and right; no matter what is popular.

7.. Faith is when love empowers you to see beyond the present situation; go forward in confidence fully assured The Blessing is on the work of your hands.

8. Gentleness is when love empowers you to express God is the skin you are in. You are planted for purpose; knowing and understanding the seasons of change.

9. Self-Control is when love empowers you to fully obey God and resist known temptations to sin or do wrong. Discipline to do whatever it takes to please Him.

Let me know if this has help you in any way.

Thanking God for you!
