Love

LOVE

Love, an emotion that cannot be explained
It can bring such joy, sometimes such pain
Love can bring comfort to a heart that is broken
It can give hope without a word spoken

I had heard about God’s love for us
I couldn’t understand, why all the fuss
Then came one day, I was without hope
Are you really there Lord? I cannot cope

I then experienced what God’s love is like

There are no words that can explain,
His love made me His, I knew I was chosen
Bathed in God’s love, it felt like an ocean

I was not seeking, I did not believe
I had not confessed or made a commitment
He came to me while I was in grief
Thank you Lord for being persistent

He knew–that I didn’t care
He stayed by me, why was He there?
Knocking and waiting patiently
Waiting to pour His love on me

His Mercy and Grace a mystery
Because of Him I have victory
Now I understand why all the fuss

Nothing compares to God’s love for us.

God is love.
He left us a love letter.
The Bible gives me love and joy and peace.
I want and need to be loved.

That is how God made me, how He made you.
Just like His Word says that He gives us
a peace that passeth understanding, he also
loves us with a love that I will never
understand.

When I first became a Christian I felt I had
to do something to show Him that I loved Him.
I had to learn that His love for me is not based
on performance.

One day reading the Bible I read
1 John 4:10
“This is love: not that we loved God,
but that He loved us and sent His Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins”.

All God wants is for me to understand His great
love for me. He wants to have a relationship
with me. I don’t have to do a thing for Him to
love me more.

Nothing can separate me from God’s love.
That is what unconditional love is.
I am loved.

Psalm 36:5-6
Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest
mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
