There are so many places in scripture that speak of love. This verse here is from a letter Paul wrote to the Romans. This morning I read this verse on Iris's post and it spoke to me, so I thought that I would share it with you as well.
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8:37-39
With a love like that, a PERFECT love, from a PERFECT God...what more could I ever need? NOTHING can separate us form the love of God, how amazing is that? But God is so good, He has given me even more. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who loves me, and two (and a half) children who are more joy and love than I ever imagined.
I love my family with everything that I have. It is incredibly comforting to know that the love I have for them is minuscule compared to the love that God has for each of us.
There is no comparing love; I am human so my love may fail at times. But His never does!
What an awesome thought! What an amazing thing to be thinking about as Valentines Day rolls around the corner!
Have a blessed day, a blessed week, and a blessed Valentines Day. When you are sharing Valentines Day with the one(s) you love, please take a second to remember that there is One who loves you with a good, perfect, everlasting love!
