A PIECE OF MY HEART...Shake it up!

Have you ever opened up a can of soda after it had been shaken? If you have, you have experienced a shower of surprise! All of the carbonated drink inside that small can all of a sudden explodes into a shower of spray, usually exploding on the person holding the can and on those things near by.

Did you know that this is exactly what God wants us to be like? He wants our lives to be so full of love and goodness that it overflows and spills out on everyone around us. Before we can "spill" out on others, we have to make sure our tank is FULL

1 JOHN 4:11 "Since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."
When we wrap our minds and hearts around the fact that God so loved us that He gave His only son, our hearts and minds will begin to fill up with His love. His love is unending and before we know it, love will be oozing and pouring out of us because we will not be able to contain all the love He has for us.

This kind of love cannot come from ourselves. It is impossible to love your enemy without having the love of the Father inside of you. Shaking up His love that is inside will only do one thing - explode and spray those around you.

Go ahead  - shake it up and cover those around you with alittle love!

and this has been a piece of my heart today;
