Come stroll through the hearts,
and find the love,
the never departs,
from up above...
So.....Let's talk about LOVE for a moment before I reveal my giveaway.
What is LOVE?
This is the definition I came across on the internet ~ A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection
But what does the Bible say LOVE is?
Let's read what is says in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
This passage explains what LOVE is and is not. It helps guide us and teach us. It makes us look deep within ourselves and ask some very important questions.
Here's another important question...
Who is LOVE?
1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:16
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
Look at how much GOD LOVES YOU...
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.
Hebrews 13:5 "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Take a moment or two and think about what those scriptures mean.
Humbling isn't it?
Now that I've shared my thoughts and God's word on and about love, let's move on to the giveaway!
