"And now abideth Faith, Hope, Love, these three; but the
greatest of these is LOVE!" ~I Corinthians 13:13
Hi there! So glad you "stopped on by" my blog today! :)
It seems as though I've done many posts about love, but seeing as though God's love is inexhaustible, I can't write enough about it!!!!!!!! Lol! As I prepared to write this post, I prayed that God would give me words from His heart of what love is. I grabbed a pen and started to write and write and write and write and flip a page and write....lol! I guess you get the point! It felt like to truly describe love would be an endless task and that feeling was rather exciting! Grin. That's how GRAND God's design of love is. It's WHO HE IS and He is infinitely wonderful. :) As God kept giving me words describing His design of love, the lyrics to a song came to my mind and what powerfully true lyrics they are of God's love.
"...Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure -
The saints and angel's song."
-"The Love of God" by Frederick Lehman
Isn't that a magnificent thought?! The oceans filled as ink, the sky as a never ending journal and every person on earth as a scribe to write the love of God and EVEN STILL that wouldn't be enough! Whoa. Just pause and soak that in. I just did! :)
These following words are just a tiny glimpse into the vastness of love and to write every word blessed me so much. It's always so very good to be reminded of what true love is, Who it's from and to be encouraged to live it out with every ounce of our being!
