God's Love

posted on: 12.07.2009

As I sat down with my feet dangling from my bed, I had God’s word in my lap. I could not make sense of anything that had happened just minutes ago. But He was urging me to seek His word for comfort, encouragement and confirmation. I picked up where I was, 1 Corinthians Chapter 13. He made it clear that He loved me and that these past couple of days I had invited Him to show me His love and longing for me. He did everything to catch my attention. And I was willing and faithful. His words to my heart where exactly that: “I reward your willingness and faithfulness; I make you worthy and you are complete in me. Thank you for finally trusting me, for resting on the palm of my hands. You now know love that seeks your good. I’m not going to hurt you; if you go through the fire, it’s because I love you so much that I cannot leave you were you are. You will find strength in me. I promise not to leave you. I’m taking you places and you will understand everything when the timing is right. Be patient my beloved, I want to fill you with patience, compassion and love. Mostly with the love that mirrors mine. Now come and sit by my feet, I want to hear your heart speak. I long to hear the melody your soul sings.”

There’s a fire burning deep inside me to grow closer to Him. He gifted me because I came close to Him and His love. You have to understand that without love, I am nothing. You are nothing. There’s no reason for existence, purpose or gain.

“And Now I will show you the most excellent way. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have no love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-2

Once you encounter His love, you can never be the same. I knew of God and I sought after Him, but I really didn’t accept or comprehend His love for me. The definition of love in my life had been twisted and had been tainted by hurt. I wanted to think of God as my healer and savior. Not my lover. Never my lover. But He pursued me into romance and Love isn’t anything like what I’d known. He just wanted a chance to prove me wrong, and I gave it to Him because I wanted so bad to know what would make the Lord, King of Kings and my Creator, want to give me, a worthless and sinful girl, so much hope and restoration. I found True Love. I cannot be without True Love. Do you know what God’s love is like? Cause I can tell you, you would not believe the way He touches me. I’m having trouble believing it myself.

3 Smiles:

  1. Beautiful post, Ashes. Indeed, live is meaningless with God's Love. Everyone searches to fill the void in their hearts with material things, or with other people, without realising that their heart will never be complete or filled without God's love. Once that divine revelation comes, it's amazing. There's no mistaking it. It's beautiful, because God is wonderful. His love for us is so deep, it's unfathomable. Praise God! x

  2. God's love is truly so incredible and unconditional. I feel like so often we hear aout this love but we never really take the time to recognize its power and how necessisary it is to our being. So I love this!

  3. Wow! This is amazing. GOD's love truly is something. I'm still seeking a relationship with Him and longing to experience His love. I know I will and I won't stop until the day that I realize it and I'm completely surrounded in it.

    I am so glad I found your blog. I'm not sure how you found mine, but I'm glad you did because it brought me here and I am so glad to be here. Thank you!
