Hi Gateway Family!
Happy Valentine's Day! What a great day to remember that we are so very loved --- by the special people in our lives and by a Loving Father whose love for us is beyond measure. (Ephesians 3:16-21) "His love is deep - His love is high - His love is long - His love is wide!" We can walk through our days knowing we are unconditionally loved, and we have the privilege of sharing that good news in our own circles of influence.
Have you been listening for His whisper as you start your day? Has He given you new direction for the things you are seeking Him for this year? I hope you are walking out His word for you this season. My word for 2018 is "Come Alive!" "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
Some days, life can feel like a wilderness and wasteland . . . but what a promise! He is making a way! I am so grateful that God has new and fresh things for us to be part of in every season. What has God asked you to do this week? Has He brought to mind offenses that you have been holding on to? Has this been a week of forgiving; letting go of the things that have been holding you to the past. It is my hope and prayer that you are walking in victory, filled with His love and grace for you. As you are loving and being loved today, take a minute to thank the One who loves you immeasurably.
This special day is set apart To celebrate love from the heart
Gifts and flowers, chocolates, too It's how we show our "I love you!"
Enjoy this day that speaks of Love And tune your ear to Heaven above
Hear the whisper, Hear Him speak When life is great, or when it's bleak
Take a minute; take the time To listen as He says, "You're Mine!"
Happy Valentine's Day!
Walking in His love together, Corky
