If gold can turn to diamonds, then sand can turn to pearls!

 If a worm can turn into a butterfly, then love can turn the world.

Yes love can turn the world!

Love covers a whole lot of things. It makes you see more of the strengths of one than the weakness.

You have been offended so much that it hurts? Seek to love rather than hate.

It is a herculean task trying to do this but you can do it and here’s why.

Something happened some time ago. It happened to be a worship day. Prior to my exit to the church, a whole of lot things that happened previously were pushing bitterness, anger and resentment to rise within me. It was so intense.

These emotions were battling to get the better part of me. I was telling my father (God) “Give me grace Lord. I need grace not to give in to these emotions”.

I kept pleading for grace till I went to church and gradually, they wore off. I may have given if I had tried to do it myself.

Grace will help you let go and love even those that hurts you. This is exactly what our saviour would have us do. And this is because he laid an example for us on the cross when he prayed for those against him “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing”

Therefore, speak love, make it loud and clear.

Speak love, so everyone can hear; don’t segregate.

Use your heart and use your head; that’s the one thing we all understand.

Speak love in everything you do.

Speak love and it will come back to you,

And don’t forget to use words if you have to.

There is so much hatred flying around the world. Spread some love and watch it come back to you.

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
