A Ticket to Love

In this time, with Jesus being continuously our most important focus, I saw a parallel to describe how being a partner with the Healing Rooms is released; it is through love.
I have been working with my kids each month on a new character trait, and it has become a fun focus to activate every 30 days. There are ways to turn subjects like obedience, attentiveness, and gratefulness into games to be won with prizes.
This month, we chose "love" to practice with. What is unique about this character trait is that the whole way to win is to give away. In previous months, my kids would receive recognition in the form of treats, prizes and money when they demonstrated "attentiveness", for example. But this month, the rules were, to give away as many tickets to other members of the household as they could, when they recognized someone else displaying "love". The winner would be the one with the most tickets. What I didn't tell them was the real winner, would be the one who gave away the most tickets.
At the Healing Rooms there are many ways to enter in. You may be called to learn or release your authority, so you join the prayer team. You may have a desire to stir up a city, so you join the School of Transformation or begin praying on the land team. You could be excited about being a world changer, so you open a Healing Room in your area as a vehicle. Or maybe what is most important is to come for prayer or to hear a speaker. There are many ways to engage in the free gifts, but partnership is a true act of love.
We do not desire Jesus because of what we can get from Him. We do it because He is what we have been created for. However, we are also not unaware of the enormous personal benefit that following Him provides.
When someone decides to partner with us, it is because they are in agreement with the vision, and desire to sow their seed into that vision, so that it can be multiplied on the earth. That is an expression of love. What is given is not measured, that is between you and God, but when you partner it becomes a covenant between us.
The character trait of "love" is like the color "white"- the visible expression of all color combined as light. Same as "love" is the full expression of all the character traits rolled into one.
Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.
