Love the Unlovable

The sunrises - the birds are singing, my Lord never slept - He watches over all...¸
I wake while the stars shine - His voice gently calling, 'Sit with me,' He says -
So up I get.

Love the unlovable.
Please show me how.
Partner with me.
I will partner right now.
Love the unlovable.
Please show me who.
All in your path.
I will partner with you.

I awoke earlier than usual
My King gently spoke
Love the unlovable
Take up my yoke.

Who are the unlovable?
I guess I will find out.
In my mind I am thinking that the unlovable could even be me. I laugh in my heart, it just dawned on me now - in order for me to show love to another, I must love myself.
I had not really considered this at first thought.
I thought I loved me, but perhaps I need to allow the Holy Spirit in deeper.
If there is anything that needs to be removed from my heart that hinders me from loving others, it would be something that I have allowed to hinder me from loving me.

This morning the words I heard from my Father were, "Love the unlovable."
Love your neighbour as yourself. Luke 10:27 Galatians 5:14

Misti - this is one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever read. I brought tears to my eyes....so beautiful.
My life's lesson, my life's struggle has been learning to love myself.
I find your writings profound and very touching.
I wish you blessings on your journey.
