"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love". Yep, we sure are. We are also shaped and fashioned by WHO we love, and by who loves us in return.
What do YOU love? WHO do you love? Why? We all love many different things, from certain foods, special books, hobbies, pets, and a multitude of people, most especially our families. We, a few of us, can say in all honesty that we love our jobs. Most of us like to take vacations. We 'love' our new haircut, our perfect outfit, a few shows on television, and a couple movies.
We are a people with a great capacity for love, feelings, and this capacity is ever-growing.
So, what do you love? What do you love, really love, way down in the deepest depths of your soul? What makes you tick? What guides you? What is the thing you absolutely could not survive without?
Think very carefully about this. The answer you give to this question is the thing that is shaping and fashioning you right at this very moment. This answer determines your future. We are the sum of what we believe, what we love, who we love, and most importantly, who loves us.
Who do you love? Who loves you, baby?
God loves you. If you love Him in return, then your life is being shaped magnificently!
If you don't like the answers you give yourself to these questions I've posed, do some re-arranging.
