LOVE (2)

Carol Clegg-Lamptey

This word conveys so much and means different things to different people.

LOVE ❤️😍😘😍🥰
There are numerous emojis and stickers to signify this four letter word.

Guess which movies I enjoy watching??
Romance of course! 😅
Songs?  Gospel first obviously. Love songs too; though I find I listen to them less often these days.
The words for me are so unrealistic 😅😝, unless when applied to God!

God, He is the epitome of love. 🥰
Jesus dying on a cross, laying down His life for you and I.
Now, that’s love! 😍
No wonder that I’d say He is the love of my life.

Humans will always fail in one respect or the other.

This is by no means to discount the love of family, friends, fellow believers, the love that exists in marriage; not at all.
It’s just to acknowledge the fact that that love is limited in one way or the other when it comes to humans, try as we must.
But the love of God is LIMITLESS. 🥰🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

I’ve always found it hard to say some words like – “ I miss you” or worse still “ I love you”. Very deep phrases. I’ve always felt it makes you vulnerable.
I prefer the words – “the love is deep” or “you’ve been missed”. 😅
So I don’t take the words lightly when they are used on me.

So, Happy Chocolate Day or Happy Val’s Day, whichever you choose.
Just remember God loves you mooooore than you can ever imagine; never forget it!

John 15:11-13 NIV –
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Ephesians 3:16-19 NIV –

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV –

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud .5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

God bless you!
