Today I asked God to show me how he loves. Today he showed me a video testimony about the love between two people, when I seen the love between Joey and Rory Feek. Then he showed me a forgiving love when a man forgave someone that had shot his wife and he asked prayers for his family. Then God showed me a compassionate love, when a man taught his son to show compassion to someone even though they might be slow to learn. Then God showed me a sacrificial love when he showed me what Christ did for us. John 3:16-16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
See God showed me how to love by example. When I look at the love story of Joey and Rory Feek, it breaks my heart. I see a couple who endured many tribulations and still managed to keep their love. In case you didn’t know that Joey and Rory Feek were country singers. Rory Feek was a country boy that met a woman that he thought was out of his reach. He mentioned before when being interviewed that he was amazed how this vivacious woman came to him and said, “I’m going to marry you.” He thought of it as if it were a dream. This beautiful woman wanting to spend time with him, but it was true. They soon married and enjoyed making songs together. Then finally one day arrived when Joey Feek got cancer. She had asked her husband, Rory to write about their love story on a blog. Never did he know what impact it would have on the world. Many people have read how their love for each other and God continued even during the trials that they soon faced. Joey cancer took a tole on her life and Rory said that he would do anything to take her place on her deathbed. Joey just looked at him and said, “Then who would write our story?”
See I am convinced that we see love by example. We see love that two people have for one another even during their trials and tribulation. We see the love for God that Joey had even when she had a terminal cancer and was dying. We see a forgiving love that Rory had even when he seen his wife dying in front of him. He never blamed God for what happened to him. He just learned how to love the more.
God doesn’t give up on us when we do wrong or do something we shouldn’t. He loves us despite our failures. He loves us when we don’t show love for others like we should. He loved us enough to give us his son at Calvary. If you don’t know the true love of the Father, I asked you to seek him. He can give you the love inside that that these two precious people had for each other and for God. We don’t have to be perfect but we must turn from sin and ask God to come into our hearts.
