Love That Will Complete You
by Marshall Segal

“God, by his unrivaled, infinite power, will one day remedy everything wrong about you… God’s reshaping, polishing, finishing work will be happening as we are loving. God is completing us when we love our spouses and our children, when we love our neighbors and co-workers, when we love our life-long friends and the strangers we’ll probably never see again.”

by Ann Voskamp

“If we only knew what fire every person is facing — there isn’t one person we wouldn’t help fight their fire with the heat of a greater love.”

by Myquillyn Smith

by Lisa Bridgen

“Are we as women of God so focused on what we don’t have, whether it be a husband, children, money, recognition, independence, ______________ (insert your own here), that we miss living a life that is first and foremost pleasing to the Lord? Do we tell ourselves that “when I have _________,”life will truly start or that is when I can start fully living for the Lord?”
