God IS love. And love’s not just a feeling
That comes and goes with circumstance or time.
It is His choice to lavish grace upon me
Simply because I’m His, and He is mine.
And only mine because He loved me first –
Not for anything good that I have done.
God made the choice to love me at my worst,
And see me through the covering of His Son.
And with so great a love poured out upon me,
How could I not then love Him in return;
Then reach out to a world that’s lost and lonely,
To share this love of God that I have learned?
For God’s love flows through everything He does.
So if I’ll let that love flow out through me,
Then I could be His arms of grace and love
To those who yearn for love so full and free.
It is my prayer, then, that I’d fully know
This love of God that will not fade away;
That it would fill me till I overflow,
And spill out into other hearts, today.
“God is love…
We love Him because
He first loved us.
And this commandment we have from Him:
that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
1 John 4:16, 19, 21 NKJV
