Pierce my heart to love like You do

1 Corinthians 13:6-8: “…[Love] rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…”

news1Welcome to the second issue of the newly structured Pierce My Heart. We hope you’ve been enjoying all the changes, as well as your old favorites. Although there are still some changes taking place, we have settled into this new year, as we hope you have too. One of our most exciting changes is yet to come—we have several new writers! We will be welcoming them over the next couple months and hope that you will enjoy the fresh change that will come from their writing. If any of you would like to join our volunteer writing staff, be sure to let us know and we’ll send an application your way!

In this issue

Entering into February rarely happens without thoughts of love entering our minds. And this month’s issue is filled with love! From demonstrating love to our families to celebrating love with our friends to sharing love with strangers, we will center this issue on sharing God’s love with others, and learning about His love for us.

Of course, the first place to start when discovering God’s love is in His word. This month’s Daily Bible Reading schedule is filled with scripture about God’s love for us, and how He wants us to love others. As well as studying Scripture for what godly love looks like, we also have some articles that discuss how we can show godly love today.

Part of God’s love is how we love ourselves because of who we are in Christ and how valuable we are to God. This month’s Cooking Corner includes great recipes for foods from all around God’s world. Although Beauty Buzz will focus on loving our hair, it also relates to the more important matter of loving the body God gave us. February’s Health and Fitness will also discuss being content with our bodies, and not comparing ourselves to others or some “perfect”—and worldly—standard.  This issue will also introduce some more difficult topics, such as alcoholism and God’s love for unborn children.

mediamatters1Don’t forget to check out some of the lighter topics, though! Media Matters reviews a great love story, and Gifted Girls will display some reader talent. We have a list of the best things about being single, and a few fun suggestions about how to tell others what they mean to you. And to get extra insight from some of our writers, visit our new blog, Just for Today.

Be sure to also check out Style Sense this month, because there are not one, but two special giveaways, for a total value of $55!

A closing note

You can subscribe to the magazine, on the right-hand side of the page, to receive your favorite articles in your inbox the day they’re posted. Don’t forget about the Facebook Fan Club. You can join, and invite all of your Facebook friends to join too!

Now that we’ve hopefully renewed our spirits, we can fully delight in the feeling of God’s love, so grab some hot cocoa, sit back, and relax as you read the articles this month to discover new ways of sharing that love with others.
