If I knew that today would be the last time…

If I knew that today would be the last time I’d see you,
I would hug you tight and pray the Lord be the keeper of your soul.

If I knew that this would be the last time you pass through this door,
I’d embrace you, kiss you, and call you back for one more.

If I knew that this would be the last time I would hear your voice,
I’d take hold of each word to be able to hear it over and over again.

If I knew this is the last time I see you,
I’d tell you I love you, and would not just assume foolishly you know it already.

Philip Gulley on Traits God Values

The more adamant we are about God, the less likely we are to embody the traits we believe God values — love, compassion, peace, wisdom, and patience. All of these virtues are forsaken in our efforts to refute the spiritual perspectives of another.

Philip Gulley

Love never gives up

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

1 Corinthians 13 (The Message)
