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

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

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
