One summer night, back when Nicole and I were dating, I took her for a drive in my 1974 Corvette. I looked at this AMAZING woman and I knew that I loved her with ALL MY HEART!

But just knowing it, myself, wasn’t good enough. I had to take the RISK and make sure she felt the same way about me.

When we stopped at a red light, I saw my opportunity. I squeezed her hand gently and said, “I LOVE YOU!”

She didn’t say ANYTHING for, what seemed like, an eternity! (Actually, it was probably only about 2 seconds.)

That was two seconds of FREAKING OUT for me. It was the LONGEST red light in the history of traffic!

Then, she looked at me with those big brown eyes and said, “I love you, too.”

Whew!!! (Thank God!) Lol

Withholding our love for someone can, actually, be MORE PAINFUL than openly rebuking them!

Have we been withholding how we feel toward God and what He means to us?

It could be in praise and worship, a psalm of thanks, or just a prayer from a grateful heart. Don’t withhold your true feelings from God!

Speak up and love OUT LOUD!

Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!

    Pastor,is that you and your wife? You are a marvelous pair. I can see the grace of God on you. Thank you for the message of love..A certain musician sang that it’s so good loving somebody and somebody loves you back.
    It is very important that we love God because He first loved us. Thank you so much.
