The Power Of Love!

Post 1151




Love is no respecter of age or practicality
Neither morality: Unabashed

She enters where she will
Unheeding that her immortal fires
Burn up human hearts…

Phillip Pulfrey



Of all the gifts given to humankind by God, I believe the ability to feel and share love with one another is the greatest of all…perhaps as necessary for the functioning and health of our physical beings as is food, water and air.


Love is one of the first emotions we experience as newborn babes, held in the arms of our caretakers. We don’t understand what it is we feel but it is obvious that we are contented as we quiet and relax and return to sleep, soothed by the gently rocking and heartbeat as we are cuddled close. It is also the all-encompassing joy and gratitude we feel when we look into the face of those closest to us.


With love in your heart and soul, there is nothing that is beyond your reach. Love lifts us up and makes our trials bearable. Love validates our being and tells us we are all worthy. Love supports us and gives us purpose in our dealings with our family, our friends and our Lord. Love is the time when the feelings and well-being of another surpasses our own and we accept this sacrifice joyfully.


Without love, we are empty inside and never contented for we are always searching for an answer as to why we ache. Human love completes us but divine love knows no limits…..


1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 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. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13 NIV
