Love is Patient, Love is Kind, Love is…
By Rachel Loynes
Valentine’s day is upon us and we may think that this is only a festival for lovers/couples or a money making ploy by the commercial industries. However, God’s love is relevant to everyone whether in a relationship or as a single person. Love is…
Like a butterfly’s wings shimmering in the sun,
reflecting the light in a beautiful array of colour.
Love shines on the good and overshadows the bad,
it brings the receiver to life.
It perseveres against all odds,
and protects those who stay within its grasp.
It sees the cracks, the creases,
the faults but, chooses to turn a blind eye.
Love heals the wounded heart,
it turns the dust of our lives into the diamonds of heaven.
Those life experiences, in the sands of time,
love makes into precious jewels for eternity’s view.
Love is a many factored thing.
Human love can be the most beautiful thing or it can harm
but God’s love will always accept, build, heal and endure.
God’s love is more than can be held in this world or the next.
It is free and it gives freedom. His love never fails.
During this season of Valentine’s remember those you love, hold them in your hearts and know that Jesus loves you. You are so precious to Him that he died on a cross for you. He now waits at the door of heaven to welcome you to His home and He waits at the door of your heart to make His home in you.
‘Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour 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’. 1 Corinthians 13 vs 4-8.
