Your "love walk", get your joy back!!!

When I got saved, I really experienced Romans 5:5

Romans 5:5

New King James Version (NKJV)
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us

But adversity entered in and pain, hurt, and just the business of life.  I got away from my first love.  God is truly my first love and their was a love poured out in my heart to give to others when I had God as my first love.  But I got away from that.  It has remained in my heart, but I have not acted on it.  I have not made time for it.  Which means I have not made time for the people that it is suppose to be directed towards.  This "love walk" has really been on my mind.  Am I really loving people?  I made a decision last night, that I'm getting back to the "love walk" God gave me in the beginning.  Sure, I was a baby in Christ.  Sure I was prideful because I was a new Christian.  But with all that I was on fire for Him and it caused me to love others.  I made mistakes that hurt people in my immaturity and my pride, but don't we all at some time or another in our lives.  But because I did that, I shelved my "love walk".  I didn't want to be prideful anymore, I didn't want to hurt people by being to bold.  But we shouldn't shelve what God has given us in the beginning because we stumbled.  Maturity comes, it does!!!  As little children in the Lord, God gives us grace for our mistakes just like we do with our own children.  Other people might not offer you grace, but that's ok.  Don't let that reflect on the grace God wants to give you.  He wants you to grow and make mistakes in liberty under the protection of His wings.  Don't shelve the love that He has poured out in your heart, because He has designed you to "walk out that love" in a very specific way.  People will disappoint you, but God will never disappoint you.  Let us start responding to God and stop responding to people. 

Psalm 51

12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.
