A different Kind of love

A different Kind of love

By Thelma Ehigiamusoe


There’s a kind of love nobody knows. 

It is uncommon to the human mind. 

This kind of love is not self-serving or preserving. 

It is utterly selfless.

It puts the next person's needs above yours. 

It is not a love we know without help. 

It is a love God knows and shows. 

What Kind of love is this?

He showed this love when He gave His life for the human race (John3.16). He reconciled us to Himself through His death and resurrection (Colossians 1:20). He ensured we do not need to ‘work’ towards our salvation or prove ourselves to Him to be in His ‘good grace’(Ephesians 2:8-9). He made forgiveness available even before we knew to obey Him (Romans 4:8). He loved us first (1 John 4.19). A love so perfect casts out shame, guilt, fear, condemnation, doubts, and pain(1 John 4.18).

This love, He passed on to His children through His Spirit. It is through this kind of love we realize that self-preservation is self-destruction and decay. Since we bask in this love, it is only (super)natural that our response to Mankind is displaying this kind of love. 

A kind of love God and His family know. 

It is a kind of love that sets captives free and transforms sinners into sons. 

No longer slaves, now children of God, because He is this kind of love, and this kind of love is God. 

It is my kind of love, and it can be yours too. 

All you need to do is accept the life of Christ. 

Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way, Truth, and Life.

There’s a kind of love that God only knows, and it is this kind of love.

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love.  Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose. On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderfu

How I got my battle scars (Part 2)

How I got my battle scars (Part 2) I want to start by saying a big thank you to everyone that reached out to me after my last post on how I got my battle scars , please read my last post before reading this one . The overwhelming love and encouragement I received from everyone blew my mind. Thank you so much for it all, thank you! Like I promised, here is the part 2 of this story. Isaiah 41:10 "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." March 22nd, 2012. After receiving emergency treatment, I was put in a corner to be picked up by my family. My friends had reached out to my older sisters (they both lived in the UK at the time) about the accident. They were scared and did not know how to inform my parents, at last, they passed the information to my dad. My dad was out of town, so he reached out to his friend who lived around

How I went from being ashamed to being confident with my scars! (Part 3)

How I went from being ashamed to being confident with my scars! Oh wow, the feedback has been mind-blowing. A lot of people reached out to me and said they were moved to tears as they read my story, others said it helped them to stop complaining and become more grateful. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement, God bless you richly. This is the finale of how I got my battle scars stories, please catch up with Part 1 and Part 2 if you have not done so already. Here it goes. After a month and half of having my flesh cleaned every two days, the surgeons finally said I was ready for skin reconstructive surgery. They explained that I will be undergoing skin graft surgery. Basically, they were going to copy skin from my thigh and paste and all my burned areas. I had two options, mesh graft or sheet graft. Because the burns on my legs were extensive, they used mesh to reduce the chances of infections. The burn on my stomach and arm were covered with sheet
